Slowpoke Rodriguez is the Sportsbet.com.au favourite to bounce back into the winners list when he lines up in the Australian Steeplechase (3900m) this Sunday at Sandown.
The Patrick Payne trained galloper got too far back in the Brierly at Warrnambool last time out but punters are going to give him another chance if the early betting is any guide. He’s firmed to $2.50 from $2.60 and clearly holds sway.
Last start Warrnambool winner Georgethefifth is the $3.50 second elect and is rock solid after being scratched from a 3600m flat race at Stawell on Friday. Former Kiwi Shamal got to $4.80 from $5.50 but is back to his opening price.
