Champagne Stakes 2017: Odds on favourite on the drift

Posted by Sports News First on 13/4/2017
Filled in: Racing punters aren’t that keen to take the short odds about Invader when it comes to the Champagne Stakes (1600m) this Saturday at Randwick.

The impressive winner of the Sires does look the one to beat on paper, but the punters don’t want a bar of the red figures. He opened $1.75 and has immediately drifted, out to $1.90.

The money has come for the winner of the Fernhill last Saturday, Whispered Secret. Stablemate Prized Icon won the race last year before winning the Champagne and punters think a repeat is on the cards, backing her into $4.80 from $5.

There has been nibbles for others at a price, including Eshtiraak ($12-$11), Reflectivity ($34-$21-$23) and Aberro ($17-$16).
