Real Impact is fast overhauling Japanese counterpart World Ace as the best backed runner in the Doncaster.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au opened Real Impact at $17 for Saturday’s Randwick Group 1. However, since his Ryder Stakes win, the invader has firmed into $7.00.
World Ace remains the best supported runner due to early money, but has drifted from $9.00 to $17.
“There’s no doubt the punters fancy the Japanese runners, but one is on the rise the other on the drift. If the trend continues Real Impact could overtake World Ace as the best backed runner,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
Three-year-old Hallowed Crown heads betting at $6.00 and is the most popular of the locals. Happy Trails has admirers at $21.
