Centrebet Australia has been flooded with Cox Plate money for the Mark Kavanagh-trained Whobegotyou in the wake of the four-year-oldâ€™s impressive win at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
Whobegotyouâ€™s Datoâ€™ Tan Chin Nam victory ensured punters were quick to snap up the $5 available on Whobegotyou winning the Cox Plate.
â€œThe punters have come from everywhere to back him in the Cox Plate,â€ Centrebetâ€™s Neil Evans said.
â€œI think they were waiting to see what he did with the blinkers on before they launched into him.
â€œThey got their answer on Saturday in no uncertain terms. He has lost nothing and the sheer weight of money has forced us to trim his price into a clear $3.50 favourite for the Cox Plate.â€
Evans said Mic Mac lost no admirers with his second in the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes, his Cox Plate price shortening from $14 to $11.
Mic Mac, however, is expected to miss the race and will be brought back in distance to contest the Group I Manikato Stakes on September 25.
