Darren Weir’s defending champ opened at $3.20 to go back-to-back in Saturday’s $200,000 Group 2 Back to Caulfield P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) but has since eased out to $3.30 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Of course punters are still getting on the Shamardal seven-year-old with Ladbrokes offering money back up to $50 as a bonus bet if he or any other runner you back as your first fixed win bet on the race runs second.

First-up in the race last year the talented grey was then being spruiked as a genuine Melbourne Cup horse.

Puissance de Lune took out the Lawrence and then ran two subsequent Group 1 seconds during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival but injured his tendon when 12th in the Cox Plate and hasn’t raced since.

He returns on Saturday though with history against him to make it two straight Lawrence Stakes wins with the last horse to do so being Tauto back in 1971-72 when the race was called the Liston Stakes.

Steady at $5 through Ladbrokes as the firm second elect in PB Lawrence Stakes betting is then the Peter Moody-trained Lidari.

A French import, the six-year-old son of Acclamation has a nice first-up record of three wins and a second from six attempts that he will be looking to add to on Saturday.

His latest start was a disappointing 16th in the Doncater Mile back in April however two runs before that he won the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m), a race Puissance de Lune won the year before leading up to the Lawrence Stakes so the form is there.

The markets are all pretty steady with no change to the price of Star Rolling ($6.50) either, the Peter Morgan-trained also resuming after a last start ninth to Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) in early March.

There has been money however come for Chris Waller’s dual Group 1 winner Foreteller backed in from $7.50 to $7.

Drawn in barrier seven with Hugh Bowman in the saddle the veteran makes his eight-year-old debut after some hit-and-miss autumn form last time in that included an Australian Cup third.

Zamorar on the rails in barrier one then rounds out the single-figure PB Lawrence Stakes chances at $8 for the consistent sprinter to continue his good form this campaign on the seven day turnaround after a third to Galaxy winner Tiger Tees in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) at Flemington last Saturday.
