Santa Ana Lane was very good in the Everest and Sportsbet.com.au punters think that will be the key form reference when it comes to the Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington this Saturday.
The Anthony Freedman trained star sprinter tried his guts out in the Everest but was no match for the three year old Yes Yes Yes. Proven straight track performer and third up, should be hard fit. He’s at $2.20, marginally out from $2.10, but is still clearly heading betting.
Nature Strip, who was one of the runs of the race in the Everest, is on the second line of betting at $4.60, out from $4.20. The early firm has come for three year old filly and Manikato winner Loving Gaby, who is at $8, in a half point.
