Punters are pinning their hopes on Chautauqua to line their wallets on the final day of the Flemington carnival tomorrow.
The Team Hawkes runner has been well backed at Sportingbet.com.au and has shortened from $3.30 into $2.30 over the past two weeks.
“We had one punter plonk $50,000 on him at $3.10 just before his main rivals lined up in the Manikato Stakes two weeks ago and we’ve taken several more five-figure bets since,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
“The punters have singled him out as the bet of the day and most of the early quaddies placed so far have him one out.”
Sportingbet Manikato Stakes winner Lankan Rupee has been solid at $5.50 with Sportingbet, with Slade Power the only other runner under double figures at $7.
