Andrea Mantegna has clearly been the best backed runner with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Group lll Hobart Cup (2400m) this Sunday.
The Darren Weir trained import raced on the Parks track last time out at Morphettville where he pretty much beat nothing but the manner in which he did it was very impressive. $7.50 was the opening price and it was taken immediately, now into $4.20 and he has taken over as the favourite.
The opening favourite was Pretty Punk at $4.50. She remains there but has been taken over by the avalanche of money support for the Darren Weir stayer. Next best is the local hope Eastender at $5, who did touch $4.80.
