Punters are keen to splash their money out on the Darley Classic (1200m) this Saturday at Flemington, in particular a Group l winner from the Brisbane Winter Carnival.
Malaguerra, formerly trained by Team Freedman but is now with Peter Gelagotis, is second up here and is a winner down the straight previously. He surprisingly opened $13 and has had really good support. He got down to $8 but has eased slightly, now sitting at $8.50.
Our Boy Malachi has also been very heavily backed, now into $4.40 from $6.50 while Sheidel, who has an outstanding winning record, is $16 to $13 and has drawn well for the Group l assignment.
The alarming drifter has been Manikato runner up Fell Swoop. He opened the $4.50 favourite and has been friendless, now sitting at $8.00.
