Windstorm has been the subject of strong support with Sportsbet.com.au to take out The Sofitel (1400m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The WA four year old, who is one of a few for Bob Peters that could head towards the Golden Eagle, was a real eye catcher at Caulfield last time out. William Pike is in the saddle and he is up to 1400m on a likely wet track means he is clearly the one to beat and punters agree, getting him to $2.10 from $2.20 but is now at $2.15, with a large percentage of money invested in the race on him.
Romancer has been a key firmer since Wednesday, and with rain on the cards, could come into play. He opened $14 and has firmed ever since, now sitting as an $8.50 chance. He sits on the second line of betting, a half point clear of Yulong January.
