The All Star Mile (1600m) is really all about one runner when it comes to Sportsbet.com.au and the market for the $5 Million contest at Caulfield on Saturday.
The David Vandyke trained star three year old Alligator Blood has either raced or trialled at least once every month since July, a remarkable feat for all concerned. He heads betting at $2.60, in from $2.70, and has been clearly the best backed runner.
Melody Belle, somewhat a forgotten horse for the race despite being the best horse in the race in terms of a career CV, is a $5 chance and rock solid at that quote.
If you’re looking for value, Golden Eagle winner Kolding ($12-$11) has had specking despite looking legless in the Futurity at Caulfield.
