Defcon Set To Rise For Slipper – Sportsbet $2.00
If hot prospect Defcon runs up to the wraps tomorrow, he is certain to move up the Golden Slipper chart.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports solid backing for Defcon in the Canonbury Stakes. The Choisir colt is $2.00 favourite for the Rosehill Group 3 and a $17 chance in the Golden Slipper.
Another debutant, Star Of Monsoon, has also received support, firming from $4.60 into $4.00. Pewter ($21 into $17), from the Clarry Conners yard, has also been targeted for some each-way bets.
“Defcon was impressive in two of his three trials and Peter Snowden is talking up his youngster. He’s the best backed runner in the Canonbury and If he wins there’s no doubt the Slipper market will receive a shake-up,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
