After a brilliant first up win in the Ascot Handicap, aided by a lovely rails hugging ride from Ryan Wiggins, the Kelso Wood trained Into The Red has been best backed to take out the opening race at Doomben this Saturday, the Hinkler Handicap (1200m).
To be ridden by Ryan Wiggins, who rode the horse first up, the gelding opened $7.50 and has been crunched by Sportsbet.com.au punters, with the son of Not A Single Doubt now into $4.60.
As a result, the hot favourite, Kaepernick, who opened $2.20, has eased out to $2.50 and has been completely friendless with the support for Into The Red.
Excellantes has had some specking, firming to $12 from $14, but has eased to $13.
