Rebel Dane Set To Break Valley Drought
Smart sprinter Rebel Dane is favourite to finally breakthrough for a win at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has posted the six-year-old at $3.50 for the Australia Stakes. Rebel Dane is yet to win in five attempts at the Valley and meets a strong field including Emirates Stakes winner Hucklebuck ($8.00).
Dual Group 1 winner Trust In A Gust, also resuming from a spell, is on the third line of betting at $8.00. Durendal, who has a fitness edge, is second favourite for the Group 2 at $7.00.
“Rebel Dane hasn’t won here, but he’s run some cracking races against the best sprinters in the land. He trialled well and has a great first-up record, so he’s definitely the one to beat,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
