In terms of the big guns, Chautauqua and Exosphere, Sportsbet.com.au punters are keeping their powder dry in the feature race of the weekend, the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) on Saturday at Flemington.
Chautauqua has opened $2.70 while the three year old Exosphere is the $2.45 favourite. But in somewhat of a surprise, Va Pensiero, who also resumes here, has been well backed. He opened $81, got to $101, then was down to $67 but is now back at his opening price of $81.
Another three year old that is entered is Kinglike for Peter Moody, who has been $26 in from $34.
