Dual Group 1 winner Lucky Hussler has been well supported to defend his crown in Thursday night’s William Reid Stakes.
Lucky Hussler is firm $3.20 favourite, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The Darren Weir trained six-year-old is coming off a slashing run, when third in the C.F. Orr Stakes.
Last start Canterbury Stakes winner, Holler, is second pick on $4.20.
Japonisme ($7.00) and Kinglike ($8.00), round out the runners under double figures.
Newmarket winner, The Quarterback, is $13 for the Moonee Valley sprint.
“Lucky Hussler is proven at the track and is racing in great heart. Weir is keeping the gelding’s runs well spaced and punters are happy to jump on board,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
