Online bookmaker Sportsbet believes last year’s Blue Diamond winner Star Witness is a risk at Caulfield on Saturday in the $100,000 Listed Manfred Stakes (1200m).
The bookie is offering $2.00, one of the best prices in the country with other bookies installing Star Witness odds-on favourite, as there are some doubts on the suitability of Saturday’s race for the Starcraft colt.
“Star Witness is undoubtedly the best horse in the race, but we think he’s vulnerable and shouldn’t be odds on,” said Sportsbet.com.au’s Haydn Lane.
“He’s got to carry 59 kilos, could well find himself pocketed on the fence and is being set for the Australian Guineas over a mile.
“He might prove simply too good for his rivals despite all the knocks, but we’re more than happy to risk him.”
