Former sprint star Lankan Rupee will carry the weight of punters’ money in the Bletchingly Stakes on Sunday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced the Mick Price trained gelding as the $4.60 favourite for the Sandown Group 3. The five-time Group 1 winner won his last race in February 2015 and has struggled with injuries since.
Rising sprinter Ability is second pick on $5.50, just ahead of Queensland mare Savanna Amour ($6.00). Keen Array and Chocolate Holic share the fourth line at $7.50.
“Lankan Rupee was once rated the best sprinter in the world and the punters loved him. By all reports he’s come back in good order and if he’s anywhere near his best he’ll beat this field,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
