Irish invader Johannes Vermeer is the punters’ pick for the Caulfield Cup firming from $4.80 into $4.20 favourite.
Amelie’s Star ($9.00) is the second best backed runner behind Bonneval.
An injury concern for Bonneval has sent a scare into punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au and she has eased from $4.80 out to $9.00.
Bonneval holds the most money, but since the media attention her popularity has waned.
The caution around Bonneval has caused a solid move for Johannes Vermeer and former European stayer Ventura Storm ($15 into $12).
Topweight Humidor is also solid in betting at $7.50 along with Harlem ($9.50).
“When Bonneval was in form she was the most popular Cup runner. Media attention this week has focused on whether she is lame or not and now she’s friendless. Support for the favourite is strong and at the current rate Johannes Vermeer will overtake her as the best backed,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
