Punters are keen on one horse when it comes to the feature at Randwick on Saturday, the Up And Coming Stakes (1300m).
North Pacific gave them a spanking to win first up at Rosehill and establish himself as a contender for the Golden Rose, but needs to win here to warrant going down that path. Punters think he can because he’s $2.00 in from $2.20, clearly the best backed runner.
Smart Image is unbeaten in two career outings and has has some admirers, but is $3.90 out to $4.50, nowhere near the level of support that North Pacific has. Marsannay had had specking at a price, opening $26 and trimming down to $11.
