Punters are keeping their powder dry when it comes to the feature race at Randwick this Saturday, the Christmas Classic (1200m), and Group l winning sprinter Music Magnate.
He is the clear class runner of the field and has twice trialled like a bomb leading into his resumption, smashing the clock, but punters are just on guard. He is at $3.20 and is just hovering there for the moment.
In saying that, they haven’t backed anything with confidence to knock him off. Eckstein is rock solid at $5, Kuro has had admirers ($8-$7-$7.50), while some thing Supreme Effort can run well fresh ($9.50-$8.50).
