There has been a sensational betting move at TAB for US Navy Flag in this Friday night's Manikato Stakes.

 

US Navy Flag has been heavily supported this morning and as a result has firmed from $9-$7 third pick behind Sunlight and Kementari.

 

A series of big bets came the way of the son of War Front earlier today including $25,000 @ $9, $30,000 @ $8 and $30,000 @ $7. Similar support came for him prior to The Everest as well, however, connections didn't hide the fact that the entire can't really handle Heavy conditions.

 

With a much firmer surface expected at Moonee Valley on Friday, the money has come once again for US Navy Flag which is one of four runners in the race for trainer Aidan O'Brien.

 

“We saw big money for US Navy Flag in the weeks and days leading into The Everest so it appears as though that support has come again,” TAB’s Andrew Georgiou said.

 

Outside of the move for US Navy Flag, Sunlight is now outright favourite at $4.60 after being $4.80 24 hours ago. Kementari, equal $4.60 pick with Sunlight after yesterday's draw, has been a drifter out to $5 since then.
