Exosphere Favourite To Return A Winner
Godolphin star Exosphere has opened favourite for his first foray against older horses on Saturday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has posted the three-year-old as $2.25 favourite for the Lightning Stakes. The Team Hawkes trained five-year-old Chautauqua is second pick at $3.20 for the Flemington Group 1.
At Randwick, smart colt Press Statement is also a short priced favourite to return a winner. The Chris Waller trained three-year-old is $2.50, with Counterattack and Spill The Beans next in betting on $7.00.
“Exosphere has had a couple of barrier trials leading into this race, so he should be primed for a big first-up effort. He’ll have to be because Chautauqua and some other smart sprinters will make him know he’s in a race,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
