Punters are now warming to the favourite in one of the features at Sandown this afternoon, the Sandown Guineas (1600m).
Aysar was backed as if unbeatable in the Carbine Club but couldn’t get past stablemate Crosshaven in a sit/sprint. The lack of depth in the field saw Aysar open short at $1.70, and did touch $1.75, but is now into $1.65.
The Team Freedman trained Sweet Reply was luckless on Cup Day at Flemington and is racing like a filly who will eat up the mile. She opened $3.80 and firmed into $3.60 but now with the money arriving for Aysar, she’s back out to $4.
Horrifying is rock solid at around the $9.50-$10 quote.
