Messene has been heavily supported to return to racing a winner in the Missile Stakes on Saturday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports one-way traffic for Messene, who has firmed from $7.50 into $4.80. Favourite Rebel Dane has eased from $3.10 to $3.50. Sweet Idea ($3.70) is the next best backed for the Randwick Group 2.
“It’s been a good early go for Messene, he ticks a lot of boxes. He’s drawn the rails, trialled well on Monday and has great first-up record,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
Messene is currently equal $9.00 favourite, with Weary, for the Epsom. Should he win or run a big race on Saturday he will no doubt firm to outright top billing for the October Group 1.
