Punters are thinking that Big Duke is rock bottom odds in the Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) this Saturday and as such, his price is on the slide.
It is minor though at that. As much as $4.00 was offered all in but final field he opened $1.90. That was too short for the punters. He has eased at every call and is now at $2.15. Still, a dominant favourite.
He holds the call over the horse he beat in the St Leger, Auvray, who has had admirers himself ($5.50 – $5.00). Next best is the Chris Waller pair of Libran ($5.50 – $5.00) and Who Shot Thebarman ($5.00 – $6.00).
There has been a nibble at odds for Cismontane ($15 – $17 – $15), with some punters thinking he will get a soft time of it on speed.
