RANDWICK

RACE ONE
Zoushack got punters off on the right foot by taking out the Fujitsu General Handicap (1400 metres).
The Joe Pride galloper was backed from $3.90 in the morning into a clear $3.30 favourite. Such was the weight of support for the fav that he held double the amount of money than anything else in the race.
BETS: Zoushack $1,000 @ $3.90 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,500 @ $3.80, $1,000 @ $3.70 TWICE, $2,000 @ $3.40, $5,000 @ $3.30

RACE TWO
Soldier Of Love caused the upset when hanging on to win The Star Mile (1600 metres).
The Bjorn Baker-trained runner held less than a quarter of the money that was riding on favourite High Supremacy ($2-$2.50) which was a noted drifter today despite being the one punters wanted to back earlier in the week.
Soldier Of Love ($11-$12) held off High Supremacy while New Arrangement ($4-$4.20-$3.70) was the late mover.
BETS: High Supremacy $5,000 @ $2.40, $5,000 @ $2.30
BETS: New Arrangement $3,000 @ $4.20, $2,500 @ $3.70

RACE THREE
Favourite backers were seen packing after Ahead Start was a beaten favourite in the TAB Highway Handicap (1100 metres).
Going around as one of the best supported runners all day on the Randwick card, Ahead Start ($2.80-$2.50) attracted countless big bets and was responsible for well over half the total investment on the race.
In fact, he held more than four times more money than the winner, Ten Bells ($8).
BETS: Ahead Start $5,000 @ $2.50, $4,000 @ $2.50, $2,000 @ $2.50

RACE FOUR
Fangirl defied a big drift all week to take out the Bisley Workwear Reginald Allen Quality (1400 metres).
The daughter of Sebring opened $2.90 on Wednesday and gradually got out most of the week. Eventually she would jump a $3.70 favourite.
Although a drifter, she was easily the most popular galloper in the race and held more than twice as much as the next best which was Decent Raine ($6.50-$8-$7.50).
Riduna ($7-$5.50) was the big mover late. 
BETS: Fangirl $1,000 @ $3.80 MULTIPLE TIMES, $5,500 @ $3.70, $2,500 @ $3.70
BETS: Riduna $2,000 e/w @ $5.50/$2.10, $1,000 e/w @ $5.50/$2.10

RACE FIVE
The strong money all day was for Art Cadeau heading into The Kosciuszko (1200 metres).
Starting the day equal favourite with Handle The Truth at $4.80, weight of money and consistent support saw Art Cadeau jump a dominant $3.80 fav.
Such was the level of backing foe the Terry Robinson-trained runner that he nearly held three times more than Handle The Truth ($4.80-$7).
Sunrise Ruby ($9) and Edit ($5-$5.50) were the only other two horses to hold six figures with TAB Fixed Odds.
BETS: Art Cadeau $1,000 @ $4.40, $1,000 @ $4.20, $1,000 e/w @ $4.20/$1.85, $5,000 @ $4, $5,000 @ $3.80, $2,500 @ $3.80, $2,000 @ $3.80, $1,400 @ $3.80

RACE SIX
The money trail proved spot on as Big Parade landed a decent go in the Moet & Chandon Sydney Stakes (1200 metres).
The son of Deep Field started the day at $3 after being $4.50 on Wednesday. Going around with nearly 70 percent more money than anything else in the Group Three event, Big Parade jumped a dominant $2.40 fav.
Overall, Mark Newnham's stable star was responsible for 35 percent of the market. Such was the weight of money in his favour that he nearly held more than Kementari ($4.80-$5.50) and Signore Fox ($5.50-$6.50) combined.
BETS: Big Parade $3,000 e/w @ $2.80/$1.40, $11,000 @ $2.50, $5,500 @ $2.50, $15,000 @ $2.40

TAB customers came for the Chris Waller galloper on Thursday night, seeing him firm from $4.40-$3.60 in a sensational move.
The support didn't stop there and the new favourite, who displaced Classique Legend, continued to attract big money on Friday and again today.
Opening at $3.60 this morning, he would jump a $3.70 favourite and go around as the most popular horse with TAB Fixed Odds. He was responsible for 23 percent of the total investment on the richest race on turf.
