Mahuta may be on the fifth line of Australian Guineas betting, but he is top of the list as far as punters are concerned.
Mahuta ($8.00) holds the most cash with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Kiwi star Xtravagant heads betting at $3.75, but has received about a quarter of the support than Mahuta.
Mahuta’s stablemates, Palentino ($5.00) and Perfect Reflection ($7.50), are also popular with punters.
Palentino, on the end of a controversial protest decision at his last start, is the second best supported for the Flemington Group 1.
“Mahuta is a star in the making. He’s prepared by Darren Weir and has won his last six starts, so it’s not surprising punters are sticking with him,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
