A cracking field has been assembled for the Group l Turnbull Stakes (2000m) this Saturday at Flemington and Sportsbet.com.au punters are having a somewhat tricky time sorting out the early market.
Verry Elleegant is favourite, but has been easy. She opened $4.20 and got to $4.60 before settling at $4.50, with the query being the track and what will it be. Her record is much kinder on tracks with give in it than a firm surface.
The one that has been popular since markets opened is Superstorm, who was luckless in the Sir Rupert Clarke. He opened $9.50 and is now into $7.50, on the third line of betting behind Surprise Baby, who is at $7.
