Defying conventional conjecture a car park alley spells trouble, the two widest drawn horses in the Caulfield Cup have been the biggest market movers with UBET in the lead up to the time-honoured handicap.
On a day where favourite, Mongolian Khan, drifted from $4.40 to $5 and second elect Huaraki stayed stuck in mud at $8.50, Who Shot Thebarman ($26 into $21) and Royal Descent ($21 into $18) both bucked the trend to firm notably.
Earlier this week, the Chris Waller-trained duo were allocated gates 21 and 22 respectively, although all four emergencies were drawn inside them.
“Being a capable horse with a memorable name, Who Shot Thebarman’s always a bad result for us,” said UBET Media Manager Nick Curry, adding “but the support for Royal Descent’s a bit of a surprise, although you can’t knock Chris Waller’s recent big-race success.”
Committed to making punting as thrilling as possible, UBET is offering money back up to $100 on the Caulfield Cup for win bet selections placed via the UBET app or UBET website that run second or third.
