Despite being ultra impressive at his last two starts Godolphin runner Contributer has been unwanted in the betting for the Group One Ranvet Stakes. He has eased from $2.20 out to $2.30 with Sportsbet.com.au even though he is stepping up to a trip where he has only lost once.
Money has instead come for the two overseas horses in Dominant (Hong Kong) and Tosen Stardom(Japan).
Dominant will probably need 2400m but he does have a win at 2000m and has form around the likes of Gentildonna, Dunaden and Flintshire so he must be given some chance. he has been $41 into $26 to cause a boilover win.
Tosen Stardom is a last start winner and the trip doesn’t look to be a problem for him. We have seen what the Japanese can do over here we were reminded of this last year when Admire Rakti stormed home late to win the Caufield Cup. Only query with this horse is he has never been to Australia and he may be set for bigger races. Despite this he has been well backed currently sits at $5.00 after opening at $6.00.
