Sydney sprinter Terravista has felt the weight of heavy support and is now equal favourite for tomorrow’s Winterbottom Stakes.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au offered $3.80 for Terravista, but he now heads betting at $3.50, alongside Darley Stakes winner Malaguerra.
Locally trained Rock Magic ($7.50) is the only other runner under double figures.
Another eastern state invader Sheidel, who started her career in Perth, has also received solid backing and has firmed from $12 into $11. State Solicitor ($10) also has admirers.
“He’s seven-years-old and hasn’t won for more than a year, but punters think Terravista can break his drought. He’s the best backed runner ahead of Malaguerra and Sheidel and we’ve hardly written a ticket for Rock Magic,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.
