Punters only have eyes on one horse when it comes to the Summer Scorcher (1000m) at Ascot this afternoon.
Indian Pacific has been freshened up since being far from disgraced at Group l level in the Winterbottom. Fresh legs and back to 1000m, he does look hard to beat and punters agree. Opened $2.25 and was crunched, bottoming out at $1.80 before settling at $1.85.
There have been a couple of runners specked as well to beat him. Essential Spice and Samizdat share the second line of betting at $7 after opening $8.50 and $8 respectively.
