The punters have come hard for Ciaron Maher and David Eustace first-starter Exquisite Beauty at Bendigo today after a number of big bets saw the filly move from $7.50 into $2.10 at online bookmaker Sportsbet.
The well-bred filly out of Zoustar has had the two trails to date, with the latest an eye-catching third at the beginning of the month at Cranbourne over the 800m.
