Sportsbet has been hit by a deluge of money for the Chris Waller trained Mackintosh for tomorrow’s Stradbroke Handicap.

Mackintosh has firmed from $13 into $7.00 with the online bookmaker.

Clearly Innocent holds favouritism, but has eased from $3.60 out to $5.00.

Counterattack ($8.00) and Ulman ($9.00) are steady in betting.

Melody Belle strengthened her grip on the J.J Atkins firming from $2.20 into $1.90 and she is the only horse punters want.

In the Derby, Ruthven heads betting at $4.80, but Shocking Luck ($5.00) and Volatile Mix ($6.50) are also popular with punters.

“On the strength of the move for Mackintosh he could start favourite. Clearly Innocent was the one punters wanted earlier in the week, but as the race nears, most of the money has been on Mackintosh and they are level pegging in popularity,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
