The punters were keen to back Kingmandu when breaking his maiden status at Wagga Wagga last time out, and Sportsbet.com.au punters are keen to follow suit when he contests the Farwell Rado Boljun Handicap (1200m) this Friday at Canberra.
The son of King Cugat is five years old yet has only raced twice, so he has obviously shown trainer Keith Dryden something at home, and his record justifies that. He has been the best backed runner to take out the race on Friday, firming down to $9 after opening at $13.
Eclair Journey, despite being a maiden, is the $4 favourite, holding sway over Appoint Percy and Bright Future, both sitting at $4.40. Eureka Maid, who was terrible when resuming at Canberra, has been $61 to $26.
