Counterattack is an enigma when it comes to punters but those at Sportsbet.com.au believe he can finally break the Group l duck in the Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm this Saturday.
The Chris Waller trained four year old comes through the Doomben 10,000 where he got back in the run and made up really good ground to run second to Redzel. Up to 1300m suits and Bosson sticks. He opened $8.50 before punters smashed his quote into $5.50.
Favourite for the race is the proven Group l performer Black Heart Bart. He opened $3.30 and is out to $3.90, with punters questioning his effort in the Goodwood last week. Tycoon Tara ($18-$134=) and Impending ($21-$15) are the pair at odds that have been well supported with Jungle Edge also well supported from $11’s into $8.00.
