They’re calling it a match race, but according to the punters, Hartnell cannot beat Winx in tomorrow’s Cox Plate.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is happy to lay Hartnell and is currently offering $3.40 for the Godolphin runner.
Winx is a firm $1.80 favourite and holds 9x more money than Hartnell.
With Winx and Hartnell dominating betting, Sportsbet also has a “favourites out” market where Sydney filly Yankee Rose heads betting on $3.50 ahead of Lucia Valentina ($4.20) and Black Heart Bart ($4.50).
“Our traders are happy to lay Hartnell and are offering top odds. He’s a great price, considering he has won his last three starts including a Group 1 win in the Turnbull Stakes. But Winx is a champion and the bulk of punters think she can win back-to-back Cox Plates,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
