When Robert Smerdon trained runners are supported, it pays to follow and the punters have crunched a runner of his to take out the Domain Handicap (2000m) this Saturday at Flemington.
Eureka Street, like most engaged here, comes through the 2000m race at Caulfield three weeks back won by Windbern in a real messy affair. He was one of many who copped severe interference via Dwayne Dunn and that filly. Punters are all over him to bounce back. He opened $8.00 and has nearly halved his quote, now into $4.50 and is clearly one of the best backed runners across Australia.
That has seen pretty much every other runner slide in betting, most notably Rivette winner Spanish Reef, who opened the $3.60 fav but has blown alarmingly, now out to $5.00.
If you are looking for value, the two met with interest are Seattle Park ($21-$18) and Prescott ($31-$13-$14), both of which had no luck behind Windbern.
