A good barrier draw will assist Champagne...
We earlier highlighted the big favourites in the race were Satin Shoes and Straight Gold and on the Luxbet markets they’ve come in a little bit further.
Satin Shoes still leads the way at a $2.10 fixed price but Straight Gold has been steadily moving in to $2.40.
Elite Falls is still third but hasn’t moved an inch from the $13 offered earlier in the week.
The biggest mover in the field is the unraced Crystal Rock. The Anthony Cummings trained charger has shed 10 points and is now in to $16.
The same can’t be said for the top weights Diamond To Pegasus and Bossdon City both unmoved from their $26 odds.
In our tips post yesterday we highlighted long shot Al’s Magic Miss as a potential each way chance and the punters have had a nibble at the big $51 odds. She’s now into $41 and likely to close a little more before the race jumps.
All in all though it’s still clearly a race in two for the punters with Straight Gold really battling for favouritism against her unbeaten rival.
