Sandown Park will host the feature race meeting across Australia today with the support race to the Grand National Steeple being the JJ Houlahan Hurdle which has attracted a decent sized field for this years edition of the race. Fieldmaster has been solid in betting and is likely to continue to hold favouritism heading into the race on Sunday.
Fieldmaster opened as the $3 favourite for the race before being backed into $2.70 shortly after the market was opened although since the early surge of money for him he has continued to ease slightly out to his current quote of $2.90 with Sportsbet.com.au. There has been a sprinkling of money for King Of Dudes $8 into $7 and Thubiaan has also had good money for him and is likely to start as second favourite.
Despite the drift from $2.70 out to $2.90 i will be on Fieldmaster this Sunday. His run behind Gotta Take Care i thought was very good and on that effort i think he will be winning quite easily here. He meets a decent field of jumpers but his class should prevail. Get a $250 FREE BET on Sea King to win $725!
