Sportsbet.com.au punters haven’t missed Surprise Baby, who has been well backed early to win a free ticket into the 2019 Melbourne Cup by taking out the Andrew Ramsden (2800m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The Paul Preusker trained Surprise Baby ran over 2600m at Flemington last start, his first run since the Adelaide Cup, and worked home strongly to run third to Steel Prince. $2.90 was his opening price and punters took that immediately, bottoming out at $2.35. He’s settled at $2.50.
His main threat on form and in the market is Steel Prince, who has won 4/4 this prep for Anthony Freedman. He’s a $3.80 chance and relatively solid after opening $3.70 and touching $3.60.
There has been a nibble each way for Tassie visitor Eastender ($15-$16-$14).
