He hasn’t won in nine months, but that hasn’t stopped Sportsbet.com.au punters from supporting the Fred Kersley trained Ihtsahymn in the Cox Stakes (2100m) this Saturday at Ascot. The gelding has been backed into $5 from $7 and has clearly been the best backed runner to take out the traditional lead up to the Perth Cup.

Railway Stakes winner and Kingston Town Classic runner up Elite Belle opened at $2.80 and hasn’t budged from that quote, and will more than likely go to the gates as favourite.
The other key runner in the race is the former Victorian Bass Strait, who has a couple of strong runs for Neville Parnham. He has blown out big time in betting though, getting out to $4.60 from $4.
The bonny mare Lucciola, who has got better with each run this time in, opened at $13, got to $14 and has been supported, now to $12.
