Snow Sky firmed from $11 into $10 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au overnight with the international raider now the best backed runner ahead of tomorrow’s Caulfield Cup.
Favourite Mongolian Khan has eased from $4.40 to $4.50 but remains the second best backed runner.
Other notable moves include Fame Game, who’s firmed from $11 into $10, and Royal Descent who is now at $17, in from $21. Magic Hurricane moved from $26 into $21.
Aussie punters are also snapping up the $8.00 for a European horse to win the Cup. Worryingly, just $1 has been wagered on an Aussie horse ($1.60) snaring the G1.
“Generally, Aussie punters are a patriotic bunch but not so for the Caulfield Cup. Most of them look like they will be cheering home the Pommie runner Snow Sky,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes.
In Sydney, punters have launched into Fell Swoop, who’s attracted 70% of all money staked on the Tatts Club Lightning. As a result, Fell Swoop has been cut from $4.00 to $3.20.
Punters are also backing $15 long shot Sasenkile to upset $2.60 favourite Beaten Up on the Tattersalls Club Cup.
