Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has reacted quickly to news that staying star Akeed Mofeed will travel to Australia for the Sydney Championships.
Akeed Mofeed, who won the Hong Kong Cup on the weekend, has been installed equal second favourite on $9.00 for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes in April.
He shares the second line with Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente and multiple Group 1 winner Boban. Kiwi champion It’s A Dundeel ($5.00) heads betting for the Randwick showcase.
“There was a lot to like about Akeed Mofeed’s win in Honkers and connections said they were now aiming him towards the Championships at Randwick. He’s a quality international stayer and deserves to be high in betting, in what promises to be a star studded race,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
Guelph ($11), El Roca, Hawkspur and Toydini (all $13) are also all towards the top of the market.
