World News – AU – Colette challenges Funstar over Golden Eagle patronage


The weather gods could decide whether Funstar or Colette will become favorites for the Golden Eagle at Rosehill on Saturday

After hitting as little as $ 4 before the barrier draw, Funstar held onto favoritism at $ 5 as punters rallied to other mares in the $ 7 Million Race for 4-year-olds, in particular Colette, which has been $ 15 to $ 6 since the draw

“There has to be a time when Funstar hits a price where punters will want to support her again, as she is one of the best wet trackers in the race,” TAB’s Glenn Munsie said. « We just haven’t found this yet »

The Rosehill track was deemed heavy on Friday and with rain forecast overnight and race day, punters are looking for those that have proven themselves in the conditions

“Colette won the Australian Oaks on a wet track, and everyone seems to think the heavier the track the better for her,” said Munsie “They just wanted to support Colette all week, and it gets to the point where she could start favorite with us

« The other big firmer has been Icebath since winning on a wet track last Saturday We were $ 51 on Sunday and after drawing the fifth barrier she won $ 15, while Melbourne mare Sierra Sue also has her supporters

« Surprisingly, Alligator Blood, which was a longtime favorite for the Golden Eagle, is one of the horses that we cannot write a ticket for at the moment. It has been one of the most popular horses. from the TAB over the past year, but I can see it start doubling tomorrow « 

Bluebet’s Michael Sullivan says the Golden Eagle is turning into a big betting race There has been money across the board for several runners, but Icebath and Funstar are his worst results

“Funstar is a drifting favorite, but he’s a loser for us It’s been difficult to spell his name since the bad draw,” said Sullivan “I think the factor Chris Waller and does to be on his home track will be well supported on race day

« It’s an open race where everyone seems to have a different opinion, and those around the $ 20 mark are speckled with us »

Top Sport’s Tristan Merlehan is convinced that Funstar will be favorites, even if she jumps from the outer barrier in the Golden Eagle

She wears the same form line as last year’s winner Kolding across Epsom, where she was second behind Probabeel but beat all of her rivals Eagle, which she meets in better conditions in the weight conditions set on Saturday

« If Funstar had attracted she would have cost less than $ 4, but I still expect her to become a favorite despite the wide barrier, » said Merlehan « She lines up well against any horse I have encountered at Epsom

« Criaderas is the one that some of our smartest punters criticize We bet $ 26 on him and he is now $ 21 and the money keeps coming in for him «
