With Spring Carnival racing just around the corner, IASbet.com bookmaker Mark Read believes that the racing action witnessed at Flemington on last Saturday hinted at what punters can expect from the thrilling months ahead.
“Mic Mac, now racing in open age company as a four-year-old, effortlessly lived up to his short-priced expectations with an easy win in the Auries Star Stakes. Punters were smiling with a flurry of $10,000 bets taken at $2.30, with similar bets all the way into $2.00, and the lightly-raced youngster duly saluted,” said Read.
“Not trying to be dismissive, but the run of El Segundo, carrying 63.5 kilograms, was the effort of the day that excited me the most. No doubt we will see him for his ‘Grand Final’ on Cox Plate Day.”
Following nomination time last week for the Cups in Melbourne, with a few surprising entries attempting to win the majors, Read reports that punters have taken the early odds available at IASbet.com. “Efficient and Speed Gifted, both priced at $41.00, have been the best tried so far by punters looking to snare jackpot prices on their Melbourne Cup selections.”
