Midweek Money Flows For Maidens – UBET
A lightly raced three-year-old from the David Vandyke stable has been heavily backed to break his maiden status at Doomben today.
UBET went up with a market on the Colts, Gelding & Entires Maiden Handicap yesterday afternoon and was straightaway hit with a plunge on gelding Deep Image.
After opening as the $1.85 Race 4 favourite, the son of Testa Rossa was slashed to $1.75, then $1.65, $1.40, and finally $1.15, as smart money kept streaming in.
“Our traders laid bets of $3,000 at $1.85, $3,500 at $1.75 and multiple bets of $1,000 at $1.60 and $1.40 within the first few minutes,” said UBET Media Manager Nick Curry, adding “and most were wagers from punters in the know.”
“Deep Image finished second to Winning Rupert in the Gold Edition so you know he can run, plus he has drawn well and should take improvement second up.”
Another runner has also been well tried to break his duck in an earlier race.
Snitzkraft, who ran second to Ours To Keep in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes last month before putting in a forgive run in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes, has been subject to the single biggest bet of the day anywhere around the country.
One UBET punter has plonked $5,000 on the Kelso Wood-trained colt at $1.20 to land the cash in Race 1, the 2YO Colts & Gelding Maiden Plate, for a potential collect of $1,000.
