Pierata has been one of the best backed runners on the card at Doomben this Saturday with Sportsbet and punters are really keen on him to take out the Gold Edition Plate (1200m).
The Greg Hickman trained three year old trialled up like Black Caviar prior to resuming in the Winning Rupert a fortnight back where he did plenty wrong but his class got him home. Punters think he’ll repeat the dose because he has been $2.80 in from $2.90.
He holds the call over Whypeeo, who has been a notable drifter, out to $6.50 after opening $5, but was $7 at one stage so he has had late support. He sits alongside the classy Goodfella ($6.50-$7-$6.50).
There has been each way bets roll in for Bring It Home Pop, who gets Jim Byrne back aboard. He’s hovering around the $15 mark.
