Darren Weir is the undisputed King of the ‘Bool. Last year he smashed all the carnival records by winning 14 of 30 races over the three days, as well as his own record of eight in the previous year.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au expects this year to be no different, which is why it’s such a huge win for punters that they will be offering best price on ALL Darren Weir runners for the Warrnambool Carnival.
The bookie has put together a suite of markets with Weir as the focus. However, Weir is a $3.60 outsider to better last year’s phenomenal effort to train 14 winners and $1.33 not to break his record.
Weir has 16 runners at tomorrow’s meeting, 23 on Wednesday and 24 on Thursday, bringing his total, barring scratchings, to 63. Weir’s winners, over the three days, are $1.95 to reach a combined total of 35 lengths margin and any Weir runner to win a photo finish by 0.1 of a length or less is $2.50.
“Weiry can train winners anywhere, but the ‘Bool is one of his favourite hunting grounds. There’s no risk he’ll train a stack of winners, but whether he can break his record from last year is the big question,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
