Punters think there could be a new kid on the block in the sprinting ranks when it comes to the Challenge Stakes (1000m) this Saturday at Randwick.
Viridine, a high quality colt for Godolphin, is first up here off the back of just one soft trial, but he showed immense class/quality in the Spring. He has been best backed to win the race, into $8 after opening $9.
The favourite is clearly the champion sprinter Redzel, who has been $1.50-$1.55 twice, but is very solid and heavily invested in multis. Second pick in betting is English, who opened $5 and is now out to $5.50.
