BOOKIES TAKING NO CHANCES WITH ZAAKI

The bookmakers appear to be running for cover as Annabel Neasham trained Import Zaaki is set to head to the track again this Winter Carnival and contest the $1.2m prize money available in the Q22.

Zaaki red hot favourite Q22 Race

The Q22 is the richest race at the Queensland Winter Carnival and it could be the $1.2m prize money available that has drawn Neasham in to pit Zaaki against a strong field at Eagle Farm

Zaaki exploded onto the scene earlier this year and really stamped his name in the bookmakers mind by winning the Group 2 Hollindale Stakesin an impressive fashion when gapping the field by 7 lengths. 

The import quickly followed that up with an even more impressive win at Group 1 level when he made theDoomben Cupa one horse affair when gapping the field again by 8 lengths. 

Both of Zaaki’s black type wins were Winx like in there dominance and on that factor bookies have installed Zaaki as a $1.50 shot to win the Q22. 

Zaaki drew midfield in barrier 9 for The Q22 and opening at $1.55 with Ladbrokes he quickly dipped into $1.50 for the race on Wednesday.

The UK import currently sits as $3.50 favourite to win the W.S Cox Plate. If Zaaki was to put on another demolition job in The Q22 betting for the Cox Plate is likely to crunch into the even money if not shorter mark. 

When looking through the field it’s unlikely that other competitors are going to change the minds of the punters on the race.  On the second line of betting for the Q22 is Toffee Tongue at $11, the same horse that finished 2nd in the Doomben Cup, 7 lengths behind Zaaki.

The Q22 is race 5 on a 9 race card at Eagle Farm on Saturday and features alongside Group 1 race the J.J. Atkins and Queensland's most prominent race, The Group 1 Stradbroke.
