He’s one of the roughies of the field, but punters have warmed to Diamond Tathagata for tomorrow’s Golden Slipper.
- More bets on Diamond Tathagata than any other runner since barrier draw
- Diamond Tathagata has firmed from $151 into $67 to win Golden Slipper
Sportsbet have received more bets for Diamond Tathagata than any other runner. The Mark Newnham trained colt has firmed from $151 into $67 and is the fifth best backed runner dollar-wise since the barrier draw.
The online bookmaker reports that Houtzen ($4.40) has held her place at the top of betting, but She Will Reign ($6.00) is the best backed. Blue Diamond Stakes winner and second favourite Catchy ($5.00) is third on the list but has momentum and could push for favouritism.
“There will be a lot of punters celebrating if Diamond Tathagata can win. It’s a bit of a surprise that he’s so popular, but he’s won on a heavy track and also finished second to She Will Reign in the wet,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
