Darren Weir’s flashy grey Platinum Angel has been smashed in betting for tomorrow’s Group 2 Moreton Cup on the Sunshine Coast.
Platinum Angel ($7.00 into $3.10), is the best backed runner at the meeting and holds more than twice the money than $4.20 favourite The Monstar.
“At the current rate Platinum Angel will start favourite for the Moreton Cup. She was a dual acceptor, but once Weir announced the filly would tackle this race there’s been an avalanche of support,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
Outside of the Moreton Cup another Weir runner Gallic Chieftain has almost halved his quote firming from $16 into $8.00 for the PJ O’Shea Stakes. Egg Tart is still the commanding $1.80 favourite.
Another heavily backed runner on the meeting is first-up specialist Tumbler, most bets, most money, $3.60 into $2.70 to win the Lightning Handicap.
