A couple of really promising three year old geldings make their return to racing in the Lightning Stakes (1050m) at Morphettville this Saturday and Sportsbet.com.au punters are siding with class at this stage.
That class is with Behemoth, who with normal luck wins the Goodwood Handicap last time. He returns to racing, with eyes towards potentially the Memsie and Golden Eagle. Trialled well at Murray Bridge, draws well and is the class runner. He heads betting at $2.70.
Assertive Approach is 2/2 to start his career, the latest win seeing him bolt up at Sandown. He’s at $4.50. The best backed runner in early betting has been the Patrick Payne trained Zizzis, who is into $7.50 after opening $10.
