Hawkesbury Cup winner Leebaz faces a huge step-up in grade, but has opened favourite for Saturday’s Doomben Cup.


Online bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au has the Hawkesbury Cup winner at $3.80 favourite for the Group 1. Hollindale Stakes winner Streama ($4.00) is second pick and support is strong for Junoob ($5.50).

“A Hawkesbury Cup to Group 1 is a big ask, but Leebaz is a promising type. Punters are treading warily and most of the early money is for Junoob,’’ Sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson said.

Smart mare Streama is coming off a win at the Gold Coast, but is unwanted by punters. The Peter Moody trained Kitten On The Run ($51) is the best backed roughie.
