A horse beaten 21 lengths at their last start has been well supported to win the Zipping Classic (2400m) this afternoon at Sandown.
Avilius finished last of the field that went past the post in the Melbourne Cup but despite that flop, punters are keen on his chances to bounce back in what looks a very thin race, backing him into $2.90 from $4.80.
Sound opened favourite at $3.90, but with the support for Avilius, his price has been pushed out to $4.40. Future Score, close up in the Hotham, is rock solid as a $5 chance.
There has been a sprinkling of support for Scarlet Dream at odds, into $26 from $35.
