She is over a month between runs, but the Richard Laming trained Payroll has been best backed in Sportsbet.com.au betting for the Matriarch Stakes (2000m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The mare was an emergency for the Myer but didn’t get a run. It’ll be a fair training effort to get her to win given she is five weeks between runs and is 1400m-2000m. Still, punters are thinking she can run a beauty because she has been $13 to $8.50.
Favourite for the race is Prompt Response, who touched $5.00 after opening at $6.50 before settling at $5.50. Savapoinski has seen some money, the Todd Balfour trained galloper opened at $8.00 and has been backed in to $6.00.
Heavens Above, the clear class runner of the field, she opened at $6.50 and drifted out to $8.00 early before coming back in to $6.50 with the scratching of favourite Falika.
