Punters have well and truly singled out a runner they see as a near good thing in the first leg of the quaddie, race six, at Flemington this Saturday.
Assertive Approach, a Team Hawkes trained four year old, runs down the straight over 1000m off the back of an impressive win at blacktype level in the Lightning at Morphettville, beating Group l performer Behemoth. $2.60 was the opening price and that was taken immediately, and is now into $2.00 with solid money continuing to come.
Next best in betting is Wagner at $6.00, and with the support for Assertive Approach, has eased after opening $5.50. The only key runner with market interest is the Tassie galloper The Inevitable, who got to $9 from $7.50 but is now at $8.50.
