There has been big movement in the betting markets overnight for the 2011 Hollindale Stakes at Gold Coast Racecourse with changes at the very top of the list.
My Kingdom Of Fife has lost the support he found early on and has been shuffled back to equal second favourite.
The horse taking over the mantle is Mick Price’s Heart Of Dreams with many punters buoyed by his tough third placed finish last start.
He’s a proven Group 1 grade horse and he’s mixed it with the best horses in the country and on paper this race suits him to a tee.
Also on the rise is Shoot Out which has struggled all year but punters think he’s now due and this is the race for him to start to shine.
The reasoning for Shoot Out’s backing despite poor results this year comes down to two main factors, firstly his improved fitness now going into the third race of his campaign, but also the step up in distance which is expected to allow him to find his stride.
The odds themself show My Kingdom Of Fife out from a $3.80 open now to $4.40 fixed price.
Heart Of Dreams opened at a similar quote but has been steady not moving an inch at $3.80.
Shoot Out was at $4.60 into his current $4.40 quote on the back of some big bets being reported by online bookmakers.
The drifter of the field has been Scenic Shot, the West Australian struggling to find a friend after opening at $5.50, he’s now well out to an $8.50 fixed price.
Further back in the list there’s been a bit of interest for Glass Harmonium on his Australian debut, the horse finishing second last in his previous run in the Hong Kong Cup.
The only horse not listed below $20 on the current market is Bugsytwoshoes which blew from $71 out to $101 and now $151.
