Early support for Theanswermyfriend has turned cold and the gelding is one of several Australian Guineas runners to ease in betting.
Theanswermyfriend and Divine Prophet opened at $8.50 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, but both have eased out to $9.50.
Seaburge ($11 out to $12), Fuhryk ($14) and Legless Veuve ($13) are also finding it hard to attract support.
The bulk of money is with Hey Doc. The colt has firmed from $3.80 into $3.30 and is the dominant favourite ahead of Divine Prophet.
“The Guineas looks an open race, but all the attention has been turned to Hey Doc. Theanswermyfriend and Divine Prophet are highly rated but they are a light years behind Hey Doc in popularity,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
