Punters have released the moths from their wallet and slapped it all on a Team Snowden 2YO first starter at Newcastle on Saturday.
Smartedge, a Smart Missile gelding, trained by Team Snowden, has trialled twice this prep in readiness for his first day at the races and has been quite impressive to the eye. As much as $8 was offered for him early, but he has been crunched, now into $1.65.
The TAB has reported they have taken three big bets on the 2YO gelding; $6,000 at $2.30, $7,500 at $2.60 and $10,000 at $2.00.
Nationality, a China Horse Club colt on debut for Kris Lees, is next best in betting at $5.50 but has been easy, as has D’argento ($7) and Emotional ($7.50), so it really is all one way traffic with Smartedge.
