He hasn’t raced for over a month, but Sportsbet punters are very keen on an Aaron Purcell trained colt in the Sandown Guineas (1600m) this Saturday at Sandown.
Villermont hasn’t raced since Blue Sapphire Day at Caulfield when fourth to Temple Of Bel after sitting near a hot speed. Has been kept on ice since and the punters haven’t missed him. He opened $9 and has been crunched, now into $6.50.
We have $4.50 equal favourites at the top, with Snitzepeg ($4.60-$4.50) and Beau Geste ($4.20-$4.50) sharing top spot. They hold the call over Villermont with Black Sail ($9-$8.50) also met with support.
Octabello is rock solid at $9.50 after having no luck at his past two outings.
