An impressive debut winner at Swan Hill from August, who beat home subsequent Wakeful winner Tiamo Grace, has clearly been the best backed runner with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Art Series Hotel Group Handicap (1200m) this Saturday at Moonee Valley.
Widgee Turf, a gelding that resumes for Patrick Payne and to be steered by sister Michelle, wasn’t really fancied in betting when debuting in August at Swan Hill but he showed a lovely turn of foot from off the pace to win and beat home not only Tiamo Grace but also Magnarock, who went on to perform well during the Carnival. He opened a silly price at $17 and that was taken, sitting at $8.50 but now with the scratching of Biased Witness, who is off to Hong Kong, he is at $6.50.
The new favourite now is impressive debut Moe winner Wise Hero, who was $6.50 to $5 but with the scratching is now currently at $3.80. Vegas Strip opened $17 and touched $21 but trimmed up to $16 but is now $14.
