A win in the Ballarat Cup by Lord Van Percy will kick a few goals for punters

Cool Chap is favourite to win Saturday’s sportsbet.com.au Ballarat Cup but the early money has come for the Darren Weir trained Lord Van Percy.

  • Cool Chap is the favourite for sportsbet.com.au Ballarat Cup but punters prefer Darren Weir’s runners.
  • American Genius is the pick for the Magic Millions 2YO Clockwise Classic.

The Lee and Anthony Freedman trained 4YO gelding has firmed this week from $8.00 into $6.00 but punter support has been muted with just 1 in 20 tipping Cool Chap for the win.

The best backed runner is Lord Van Percy, which has shortened from $21 into $15 as 1 in 5 punters continue to back him to salute on Saturday.

$8.00 chance Lidari (in from $8.50) is attracting decent support among the early favourites, with punters also having a decent nibble at Weir’s other runners including $14 chance Taiyoo and $21 runner Rising Romance.

In the Magic Millions 2yo Clockwise Classic, punters have come for colt American Genius, who has been crunched from $4.80 into $3.30 favourite. The Tony McEvoy trained Nistaan is also on the move, in from $16 to $7.50, with 30% of the money on it for the win.

“Cool Chap has run second twice in the past month, over 1600m at Sale and 1800m at Flemington, but is better suited to the 2200m trip at Ballarat and deserves the favourite tag,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.

“However Sportsbet punters are having none of it and are instead coming for Darren Weir’s stable of runners on the home track, headed up by Lord Van Percy which continues to shorten.”
