Tasmanian Beautide is poised to reverse a shock heat loss and win the Inter Dominion Final at Menangle on Sunday.
Beautide drew the second line in the draw, but remains the $3.60 favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au. Kiwi invader Smolder, also beaten in his heat, is equal second pick at $5.50 alongside Im Victorious.
“Beautide was far from disgraced in going down narrowly in his qualifying. From this draw Beautide should get a nice trail into the race, but it is a very open final,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
Drifters in the betting include Caribbean Blaster ($11 out to $15), The Gold Ace ($11 out to $15), Restrepo ($10 out to $12) and Terror To Love ($9.00 out to $12).
It is a huge day of pacing at Menangle with the Inter Dominion Final one of seven Group 1’s to be decided, with Sportsbet also open on the Chariots of Fire, NSW Derby, NSW Oaks and the Ladyship Mile.
