Team Snowden have had a fab start to the season with their youngsters and punters believe that will continue via first starter King in the Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington this Saturday.

The son of Written Tycoon who was a $1 million dollar yearling purchase at Inglis has looked sharp at the trials/jump outs with punters thinking the stable and connections have had this race in mind as a stepping stone. He opened $4.60 and was down to $3.80, with some help via scratchings, and is now at $3.90.

Bionics has the race experience on his side and is in the in form Ellerton/Zahra team. He has been $4.80 in from $5 while there has been a move at longer odds for Really Swish, a first starter for Team Corstens, their lone runner for Cup Week. He opened $19 and is now at $12 as some solid each way bets rolling in.
