The Newcastle Cup (2300m) at Newcastle on Friday is shaping up as a battle between Darren Weir and Chris Waller, with the Sportsbet.com.au market reflecting that.
This is one of the first times, if not the first time, that Weir has sent a runner to Newcastle in the shape of Pacodali. He does hold sway in the market at $2.60. The Chris Waller runner Sayed, who got beat as a heavy odds on pop in the Wyong Cup, is at $2.90.
That pair absolutely stifle betting with the next best being the Wyong Cup victor Destiny’s Kiss who is at $8.00.
The likely leader is Broadside and he has been the best supported at double figure odds. He opened $13, touch $14 but has now been backed into $11.
