AS REPORTED yesterday, punters keep ‘flocking’ to one pacer ahead of tonight’s Inter Dominion Final at Gloucester Park.
Fresh from his record breaking win in the third round, Lazarus was installed a $2.10 chance with TAB Fixed Odds after drawing well in barrier two – down from $2.40 pre-draw quote.
With money “pouring in’ for the five-year-old, Lazarus dropped to a prohibitive $1.90.
Amazingly, the next six contenders in the market have all drifted!
For example, second elect Chicago Bull is at $4 out from $3.80, Tiger Tara is $5 having been as short at $4.
Victoria’s leading hope, 2015 Inter Dominion winner, Lennytheshark, is now $14, up from $11.
During the past 24 hours punters have continued to invest on the Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen-trained star, with TAB’s Andrew Georgiou stating Lazarus is the “only horse that has had any sort of serious support.”
It appears tipsters agree with punters, with nine out of 10 selecting the stallion to capture the $1.1million Group One.
