The Anthony Freedman trained Shoals is now the best supported runner with Sportsbet.com.au to win the $13m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday reported the bookmaker early on Friday afternoon.
The Group 1 winning Fastnet Rock mare has attracted 24% of total wagers on the race and is now the second favourite on $7.00.
The Snowden trained Redzel still remains popular, attracting 23% of wagers and is the $6.50 favourite.
“The field is very open in the betting but nearly half the total wagers from punters have been for Redzel or Shoals so we’re expecting a tight finish to the race,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
