Top Innings & Ride The Rails Silver Chief Favourites With Online Bookie

Online bookmaker Sportsbet has opened betting on Saturday night’s Group 1 Silver Chief at The Meadows and has installed Top Innings – owned by Australian cricketing legend Ricky Ponting – on the second line of betting at $4.50.

In what is an incredibly even field, Ride The Rails, who jumps from box 2 and has the quickest PB at the track and race distance, is the $3.50 favourite, ahead of Punter’s charger.

“Top Innings is the son of the great High Earner, has blistering early toe and was the second quickest semi-final winner but will have to be at his best crossing this quality field from box 7,” Sportsbet’s Ben Hawes said.

Illustrating the evenness of the field, Veetee Turbo ($4.70), Ollie Bale ($6.00), Deadly Vane ($6.50) and Kid Maximus ($7.00) are all priced under $7.00.
