After an outstanding win last time out at this track, the Daryl Hansen trained Le Chef has been the best backed runner to win the first race at the Gold Coast, the First National Handicap (1200m).
Given he needs to win to ensure a start in next weeks 2YO Magic Millions Classic, it’s easy to see why Sportsbet.com.au punters have launched into him, firming to $3.20 from $4.
The other firmer in the race is the first starter Sagaronne, a Toby Edmonds trained filly who has been $15 to $11. She also needs to win to squeeze into the Magic Millions field.
Mistral Thief, another that needs to win in terms of next week, has been $51 to $26.
