Despite drawing poorly All The Wine and Pujols continue to battle for favouritism for The Sportsbet Hotham.
All the Wine drew barrier 11 and Pujols 16. They head betting on $4.60, for Friday’s rich race for battlers at Ballarat.
The two favourites didn’t fare well in the barrier draw, but that hasn’t stopped punters coming for them. This is a race for horses yet to win a race, so anything can happen and probably will.
Henry’s Affair, bought specifically for the Victoria’s richest Maiden, has been well backed at $26.
Street Prince ($17) has also received backing for the $75,000 race.
