Punters have launched into a Godolphin runner to take out the Geelong Classic (2200m) this Wednesday at Geelong.
Astoria, who comes through the Spring Champion at Randwick behind Ace High, has Hugh Bowman steering and the punters are keen to back the colt. He opened $7 and was crunched down to $4.80. He now sits at $5.00.
Favourite for the race is last start Hill Smith Stakes winner Savaheat, who is at $4.40 and has been well supported also after opening $4.80 and touching $4.20. The other key runner is Animalia, but he has been easy ($4-$4.80-$4.50-$4.60).
There has been a speck for Weather With You with the blinkers going on first time. He is $9.50 in from $10 but did touch $9 at one stage.
