Sportsbet.com.au punters are siding with a proven track/distance performer in the feature race for the Mares this Saturday at Flemington, the Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m).
Spanish Whisper won the Kewney in the Autumn in impressive fashion and returns to the scene of the crime off the back of an excellent second to Pippie in the Cockram two weeks ago. She opened $10 and that’s been taken, now into $6.00.
Fidelia, who was a real eye catcher fresh behind Pippie in the Cockram, opened at $3.90 before drifting out to $4.20. My Pendant, who is looking for three on the bounce, sits on the second line of betting at $4.50 after sharing favouritism early in betting.
