Track specialist Vandalised will have to carry a bucket load more weight than last year, but remains a firm contender to defend his Rockhampton Cup title.
The locally trained Vandalised is steady at $10 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The in-form Victory Hotel has been well backed and has firmed from $3.70 into $3.20 favourite.
Toowoomba mare Tints is $6.00 and the only other runner under double figures.
Peace Talks, who has won his last five starts in the bush, is steady at $15.
“Vandalised is up 3.5 kilograms on last year, but he grows another leg at Rocky, winning 11 from 15 on the track. You can’t discount him, but Victory Hotel is the one to beat, he’s been in great form winning his first three starts since a break,’’ said sportsbet.com Will Byrne.
