Observational is one of the form horses in Victoria and Sportsbet.com.au punters believe he can continue the picket fence next to the name in the Warrnambool Cup (2350m) this Thursday.
The John Sadler trained galloper showed some terrific grit to get the job done last time out in the Easter Cup at Caulfield. 2350m on a heavy track with topweight is the query, but punters don’t matter. He opened $4.80 and has firmed to $4.40.
Favourite for the race is High Church, who closed off strongly behind Observational, opened $3.50 and was crunched to $2.90 but has eased back to $3.20.
Survived has had interest at odds, opening $11 to $10.
