The old timer is the one Sportsbet.com.au punters want in early betting for the Ted Van Heemst Stakes (2100m) this Saturday at Ascot.
The race is a good guide towards the Perth Cup and the one that has been supported is the veteran Trap For Fools, racing for the third Saturday in a row. He was dominant last weekend in the Towton Cup and punters think he can win again. Opened $5, bottomed out at $4 and has settled at $4.20.
He sits on the second line of betting behind Kingston Town winner Truly Great, who is $1.40 out from $1.35 but is still a dominant favourite and is in a lot of multis as an anchor.
At odds, has been specking for another veteran, Taxagano, into $23 from $27.
