Despite drawing wide, Sportsbet.com.au punters are keen to bet up on Havasay, who is the clear favourite in the Magic Millions QTIS (1300m) this Saturday at the Gold Coast.
The Liam Birchley trained gelding has been fabulous in both runs back from a spell, both running on strongly against the bias, the latest in the Falvelon when third to Snitzkraft. Draws wide, but should get cover, and up to 1300m on the bigger track looks ideal. He opened $4.50 and he is now a rock solid $4.40 top elect.
His stablemate Fit For Purpose is next best at $8.00 after an unlucky run in the Provincial Final at Doomben. On the third line of betting is both Upstart Pride and Siegfried.
In terms of value, there has been a nibble for She’s Miss Devine ($17 – $18 – $16 – $15), who has her first run for the Steve O’Dea camp.
