It’s all one way traffic with Ladbrokes.com.au punters when it comes to the feature race at the Gold Coast this afternoon, the Hollindale Stakes (1800m).
Zaaki won this race last year and it was really the beginning of his rise in the ranks as the best Australia has got to offer. He’s been smashed in betting, into $1.50 from $1.80.
Ayrton was touted as the threat to Zaaki but with a wet track and wide gate to contend with, he’s been quite soft, out to $7.50 from $5.50. He still sits on the second line of betting, comfortably, ahead of noted swimmer Polly Grey at $10.
