Punters have come for one runner in today’s The Bart Cummings which has seen the last start impressive winner shorten into odds on favourite with the help of a key scratchings.
Who Shot Thebarman was sent out at double figure odds last start at Flemington but he made light work of his competition winning impressively and the money for him today says he will be doing that again.
The kiwi galloper made the trip to Australia earlier in the year for the Sydney cup and there was a massive wrap on him but until last start he had been very disappointing. He lumped the big weight last time out over 2000m and was doing his best work late which suggests the step up in distance will suit him perfectly.
When markets opened at Sportsbet.com.au he was the $2.60 but with the scratching of Spillway his odds tumbled into $1.85 and punters where happy to take that quote with $1.80 being the best odds now.
