Classique Legend back into $4.50 with Pierata for The Shorts

The top line for the All In market for the $500,000, Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) at Randwick on Saturday has come back together again with Classique Legend and Pierata once again sharing favouritism at $4.50.

They opened with TAB on Monday at $5.00 and then Greg Hickman’s Pierata firmed into $4.50 to take sole ownership of the favourite’s slot. However, by the end of Tuesday the Les Bridge trained Classique Legend, the least experienced runner of the potential field, was also into $4.50.

Next in the market is Osborne Bulls, Redzel and Santa Ana Lane who all remain on $6.00. In Her Time has drifted from $8.00 to $9.00, Nature Strip remains at $11.00 whole Graff has drifted from $11.00 to $13.00.

Tony McEvoy’s Sunlight opened at $15.00 on Monday, started Tuesday at $12.00 and then went to $15.00, to $13.00 and then $12.00, before drifting back out to be at $13.00.

Acceptances for the Everest prelude close on Wednesday morning for what will surely be the most anticipated race of Saturday.
