Punters Like Able Friend
Hong Kong superstar Able Friend is in demand for Sunday week’s Hong Kong Mile at Sha Tin.
The defending champion heads betting at $1.90 and has been singled out with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Maurice ($3.80) is the only other runner under double figures.
The well-travelled stayer Criterion ($5.00) is battling with Designs On Rome for Hong Kong Cup favouritism.
Criterion was third in the Melbourne Cup and will tackle another spring contender Gailo Chop, with the Mackinnon Stakes winner currently $11.
“Able Friend had his winning streak, of seven, broken last start. That hasn’t deterred punters he’s a dominant favourite and expected to bounce back with a win,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
