PLENTY of contenders have emerged, but smart filly Sunlight remains firm race favourite with online bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au and also the punters’ pick for Saturday’s Golden Slipper.
Sunlight ($3.50) is streets ahead in popularity, holding more than double the money than second favourite Written By ($5.50). The two horses won their final lead-ups last Saturday and remain the two heavyweights for the Rosehill Group 1.
Performer, a one-time favourite for the race, is third in money wagered, just ahead of Estijaab and Santos, both $8.00, but Estijaab holds more money than Santos.
“Sunlight is a very honest filly and since she won the Magic Millions she’s attracted a lot more support for the Slipper,” Sportsbet’s Ella Zampatti.
“She’s gone from strength to strength and punters are happy to tag along for the ride.”
