Winner Nozomi firmed from $34 to $10 and runner-up Preferment $5.50 to $4 for the Victoria Derby following today’s Geelong Classic.
Preferment is now a clear second pick behind Hampton Court, who was also trimmed up from $3.40 into $3 favouritism.
“Preferment will stay all day but he takes forever to get going so Hampton Court still remains the one to beat,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
Preferment was well backed at Sportingbet to win the Geelong Classic, attracting one bet of $8,000 and five $5,000 bets.
