Currently paying odds of $5 for the win at Luxbet, Undeniably will be looking to go one better after finishing second by a short-half head in last start’s Australia Stakes.
The four-year-old gelding has won three of his nine starts to date and looks to be in fantastic form for today’s 2011 Oakleigh Plate.
Also paying $5 for the win at Luxbet is Mark Kavanagh’s other representative Catapulted.
The trainer will be hoping for the quinella when his two horses begin as favourites for the 2011 Oakleigh Plate.
With the withdrawal of Star Witness, Lee Freedman’s First Command has moved into third favourite, paying $8 for the win at Luxbet.
First Command will jump from barrier four in the race and will have jockey Dwayne Dunn on-board.
One of the biggest market movers has been Peter Moody’s Set For Fame.
Set For Fame opened at $14 in the betting, but has since firmed into odds of $9 at Luxbet.
Another market mover is Avenue, who began $12 and has moved in to $10 since the announcement of Star Witness’ scratching this morning.
Reward For Effort has been ignored in the betting, and has drifted all the way out to $18 after opening at $13.
Word that the horse has not had his mind in the racing game is sure to have lost him support from the punters.
Reward For Effort will now jump from barrier ten and will be ridden by jockey Shane Scriven.
