Streama is the popular pick with punters for the Myer Classic but more than half the field has support to beat her.
The New South Wales Horse of the Year is currently the $3.00 favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.
Streama remains the clear cut favourite and she has taken double the money than anyone else but a wealth of other runners have also been well backed.
Secret Admirer ($7.00), Yosie ($8.50), Pear Tart ($8.50), Red Tracer, Oasis Bloom and Soft Sand (all $10) have all received equal support from punters.
“It is rare to see a betting pattern like this. Away from Streama we have seven or eight runners with almost identical support,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
“Throw in roughies Raspberries ($26) and Full Spirit ($19) and there is very little between them all. Punters obviously have the race wide open away from the favourite.”
