Punters are using The Everest form as a barometer heading into Saturday’s Group One VRC Sprint at Flemington.
The form out of the race has been great, with Brave Smash coming out of the event since and having won the Group One Manikato Stakes while third placegetter Osborne Bulls won at Flemington Derby Day.
Redzel won this race last year and the money suggests that he is the one to beat again here.
As of Thursday afternoon, he held approximately 45 per cent of the early investment and was a whopping 10 times more popular than any other runner.
Spirit Of Valor has been best tried outside Redzel and the bookies foolishly offered up double figures about this bloke – and the punters swooped!
He is now into single figures across most corporates while Brave Smash has had some speccing but he is only holding roughly 10 per cent of the market.
