Press Statement Eases After Drawing Car Park
Sportsbet.com.au immediately turned out the price of Press Statement after the colt drew poorly in the Caulfield Guineas.
Press Statement was $2.00 with the online bookmaker prior to drawing gate 14 and he is now out to $2.25. Ready For Victory has firmed from $11 into $9.00 along with Kiwi three-year-old Dal Cielo ($9.00) and they are the only runners under double figures.
In the Thousand Guineas Pasadena Girl is steady at $4.00, but has been joined at the head of betting by Stay With Me, who has firmed from her early quote of $4.50.
“Press Statement is the class runner of the field, but drawing two from the outside is definitely a concern for punters. It is also the colt’s first start, racing the Melbourne way (anti-clockwise) of going, so he has some hurdles to overcome,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.
