Punters have instantly stepped into Oaks favourite Shamrocker with a bet of $50,000 struck at $2.90 with Sportingbet Australia shortly after the market opened.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said the Derby winner was the only one punters wanted after she drew perfectly in barrier four.
â€œShamrocker shortened up dramatically after winning the Derby but punters think she is still good odds and have stepped in,â€ Sullivan said.
â€œI thought she looked worth risking at those odds but she is now into $2.70 after the bet of $50,000 and some other good sized bets.â€
Sullivan said Victorian Oaks winner Brazilian Pulse was actually still his worst result for the Oaks following some massive pre-post bets.
â€œWe have a huge liability on Brazilian Pulse after taking a string of big bets including one of $40,000 at $4.80 in early betting,â€ he said.
â€œShe is the clear second pick now at $4.00 but we havenâ€™t seen much interest in her this week.â€
