Lankan Rupee owes punters plenty after a last-start flop, but a slashing barrier trial has online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au wary of the highest-rates sprinter in the world bouncing back in Friday’s Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley.
Lankan Rupee is the short-priced early favourite at $1.80 ahead of proven Group 1 performer Buffering ($8.50), and Rebel Dane ($7.50).
Angelic Light is an $8.50 chance to back up her shock last-start victory over Lankan Rupee.
“A month ago, $1.80 for Lankan Rupee would’ve been considered a steal, but the superstar’s first-up run in the McEwen Stakes was disappointing and he’s facing a much stronger field here,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
