Punters are banking on Better Land getting an unimpeded run in Saturday’s Golden Rose at Rosehill.

Better Land has firmed into $7.00 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Hallowed Crown ($5.50) remains a firm second pick for the three-year-old Group 1.

“Better Land was trapped deep when resuming and last start was poleaxed by the wayward Liberation – so much so, Sportsbet refunded all bets on the race. The blinkers go on here and punters are obviously expecting better luck this time,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

Favourite Bring Me The Maid ($3.70) has been surprisingly overlooked by punters so far.
