Consistent mare Catkins dominates betting for Saturday’s Queen of the Turf at Randwick.

The Chris Waller trained Catkins is firm $3.30 favourite with online bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au and holds more money than the eight other runners. Stablemate Red Tracer is the next best backed and steady at $4.00.

“It’s all one-way traffic for Catkins. It’s not surprising punters have come for her, she’s won three of her last four, has been out of the money only three times in 21 starts and is a swimmer,’’Sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson said.

Solicit and last start heavy track winner Gypsy Diamond are $6.00 and the only other runners under double figures.

In the Oaks favourite Lucia Valentina ($2.70) has also been well supported. The Kiwi filly heads Zanbagh, who has met with good support, at $5.00. Rising Romance ($6.00) has been friendless while Interspersed ($17) is the best backed outsider.
