Promising colt Ace High has opened $4.60 favourite for the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.
The High Chaparral colt is also the best backed runner with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Sanctioned ($5.50) is next in betting order and popularity, but there has been a solid early push for Astoria ($15 into $9.00) and Sully ($15 into $12).
In Saturday’s other Group 1, the Turnbull Stakes, Winx is $1.20 favourite ahead of Humidor ($5.50).
Harlem is next in betting on $17 as the mighty mare chases consecutive win number 21 in her first start at Flemington.
“Ace High was very impressive in the Gloaming Stakes last start and will have no trouble stepping up to 2000m in the Spring Champion. He’s bred to run two-miles and another win here would confirm him as a genuine Victoria Derby prospect,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
