He has been costly but It’s A Dundeel has attracted huge support for Saturday’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick.
Online bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au, who will pay down to fourth in the Queen Elizabeth, has markets up for all the majors, on the second day of The Championships.
Bold front running stayer Carlton House heads betting on $3.50. But Kiwi, It’s A Dundeel ($5.00), has attracted more than five times the money than the favourite. Boban ($11) is the second best backed runner.
“It’s A Dundeel is yet to win this preparation, but he’s been far from disgraced. There is no doubt punters are willing to give him another chance and after all this is the race he’s been set for,’’ Sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson said.
It is similar in the Queen Of The Turf, where Catkins has been singled out as the firm $3.20 favourite and the best backed runner. Red Tracer is next in the market yet unwanted at $3.70. Longport ($51) is the best backed outsider.
Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon ($21) has been swell supported to win the Sydney Cup. The Offer, who bolted in last Saturday has attracted little interest, but remains favourite at $2.70.
Marmelo ($67) has had nibbles at huge odds, but favourite Lucia Valentina ($3.00) is solid, while Zanbagh ($7.00) is the best supported.
