Chris Waller generally isn’t known as a two year old trainer, but that hasn’t stopped Sportsbet.com.au punters from backing his first starter, Helsingor, in the Better Beyond Plate (1000m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The daughter of Dane Shadow, who is trained on the track, had a pretty solid jump out here last week and that has given the punters confidence she can get the job done fresh, firming as low as $6 from $8.50 but now sits at $6.50.
She hasn’t been the only firmer. The Gai Waterhouse trained Mr Jagger, who ran third on debut at the Valley to Headwater, has been $11 to $8 while the Godolphin first starter Landmarks has been $6, into as low as $4.80, but now sits at $5.
Favourite for the race is Emperor Maximillian, a debutante for the David Hayes/Tom Dabernig team. He has been $4.60 to $4.20. Others supported are Ragazzo Del Corsa ($5.50-$4.60) and Ibtisama ($5.50-$5).
