Chautauqua is a solid favourite to win the Canterbury Stakes

His last win was in May and he was a beaten favourite last start, but punters remain loyal to world class sprinter Chautauqua.

Chautauqua is a solid $3.00 favourite, with online bookmaker, for tomorrow’s Canterbury Stakes at Randwick.

After struggling to attract wagers when betting opened, Chautauqua has now received more bets than Music Magnate ($3.80), for the Randwick Group 1.

“The guarantee that Randwick will be heavy might be behind the renewed confidence in Chautauqua. On face value he was disappointing last start and he’s now had three runs, without success, since Sha Tin win in May last year. Hopefully he can bounce back to form tomorrow,’’ said’s Will Byrne.

At Flemington Hey Doc dominates the Australian Guineas market. The Tony McEvoy trained gelding is $3.30 favourite and Divine Prophet ($9.50) is the only other runner under double figures.

  • One punter has wagered $5,000 on Menari and he holds nine times more money than the second best backed, Jukebox ($11) in the Todman Stakes.
  • Reisling Stakes favourite She Will Reign has firmed from $1.50 into $1.25 following Houtzen’s scratching.
