Special Missile has been one of the real finds of Sydney racing in recent times and punters think he can continue that climb in the Cameron Handicap (1500m) at Newcastle on Friday.
The John Thompson trained galloper has won his past five starts, including several in town, the latest over 1500m at Newcastle where he dominated things from near the pace and won with authority. Avdulla takes over, looks the leader and the punters are keen, backing him into $3.00 from $4.00.
He is now the new favourite ahead of Spectroscope, who is at $3.90 now after opening $3.60. The Kris Lees trained Sound Proposition is at $4.80 after opening $4.60. He did get down to $4.40 at one stage.
The best backed runner at odds has been Kinsguard. He is at $8.00, in from $11.
