Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened the smart Lucia Valentina a $5.00 favourite for Saturday’s George Main Stakes at Randwick.
Nominations for the Group 1 have been extended until tomorrow, but the Kris Lees trained mare deserves her place at the top of betting. The powerful Chris Waller yard has the next three runners in the market, Royal Descent and Hawkspur ($5.50) and Sacred Falls, who is equal with three-year-old Panzer Division at $7.00.
“Lucia Valentina blew them away when first-up in the Tramway and she looks set for a big spring. In saying that, the Waller horses are all firing and it looks a pretty tough race for punters,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
