Riodini (NZ) favourite for Epsom and Montefilia for The Metropolitan

The Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Riodini (NZ) has been installed as TAB's $5 favourite to take out Saturday’s $1.5m, Group 1 TAB Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick.

Riodini was $15 when official nominations were released and was still $7 on Monday. The son of Proisir has drawn gate 15 and despite the wide barrier, is expected to roll forward and take plenty of catching.

Mo’unga (NZ), the Group 1 Winx Stakes winner, is on the next line of betting at $6 for trainer Annabel Neasham, followed by Hungry Heart at $8.00 and Icebath (NZ) at $9.00.

Some of the bigger bets from a Futures perspective that were placed on the race include two $1,000 bets @ $7 on Riodini (taken Monday) while Private Eye attracted a wager of $1,000 @ $11 on September 1 in the ‘Pre Noms’ market.

In the $750,000, Group 1 Heineken Metropolitan (2400m), the David Payne trained Montefilia is TAB’s $5 favourite ahead of She’s Ideel with the mares the only two runners in single figures.

One of the bigger movers in betting has been Entente, another member of the Waterhouse & Bott team, which had been as much as $101 and still $51 prior to his win in the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality over 2400m last Saturday at Rosehill. Entente is now at $11.00.
