New Universe has created quite an impression in two Australian runs and the former kiwi is popular with Sportsbet.com.au punters to make it three from three down under in the ATC Membership On Sale Handicap (1200m) this Saturday at Rosehill.
The Chris Waller trained three year old was coming back in trip last time out at this track and despite being chased along a fair way out, his class got him and was very sharp. Goes back up to 1200m now and Avdulla takes over. He opened $2.50 and was crunched, now into $2.10 before being slightly easy to $2.15.
He completely dominates the market. The interesting runner is the Waterhouse/Bott trained Arbeitsam. He won a recent trial by 13 lengths, beating subsequent Eagle Farm winner Burning Passion. He is $6 to $6.50. Test The World touched $8 from $9 but is back to her opening price.
