• Money has come for Derby outsider Rocketeer, firming from $18 into $16.
• Second favourite Whispering Brook ($6.00) is unwanted in Myer Classic betting, First Seal ($4.40) heads betting.
• Astern ($3.50) has overtaken favourite Extreme Choice ($2.70) as the best backed Coolmore Stakes runner.
• Brisbane trained Hopfgarten has firmed from $19 into $14 for the Cantala Stakes.
Prolific bridesmaid Rocketeer is one of several horses backed to beat Sacred Elixir ($2.80) in the Victoria Derby.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has received support for a wide range of runners away from the favourite. Swear has also been well supported, firming from $11 into $7.50 second favourite, ahead of So Si Bon ($9.00).
“Sacred Elixir is a short priced favourite and dominates the betting, but plenty of punters are looking for value. Rocketeer has finished second at his last four starts, but he is now the third best backed runner, just behind Swear,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.
