In A Wink will have to overcome a wide barrier at Tamworth tomorrow to secure her place in the Country Championship Final.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has posted In A Wink, who jumps from barrier 13 in the 14-horse field, at $5.50. Other Championship contenders, $3.30 favourite Voodoo Lad and Tarangower ($4.00), look the main dangers in the fight for the two qualifying spots.
“In A Wink has been near the top of betting for the final, but the wide alley is a concern. You can make a solid case for Voodoo Lad and Tarangower, so it should be a great race,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
Tomorrow’s result will no doubt force a change to betting for next month’s Final at Randwick. Currently Voodoo Lad is favourite at $6.00, while In A Wink, Tarangower and Bathurst qualifier Binalong Road are $7.00.
