Punters are warming more and more to Ace High to complete the Victoria Derby-Australian Derby double when he lines up this Saturday at Randwick.
The David Payne trained three year old was okay last time out in the Rosehill Guineas after sitting wide no cover throughout. Payne wanted an inside gate and he gets it, with punters jumping on, backing him into $4.80 from $5.00.
Furore is next best in betting at $7.50 and his rise has been unbelievable, starting off with a Taree maiden win back in January and is now a leading contender in a time honoured major.
In terms of specking at odds, the move has been for Astoria ($21 – $17 – $19), with some nice each way bets rolling in.
