Proven Nitro Well Backed To Win Dapto Megastar Final

The Jason Thompson trained Proven Nitro has firmed from $5.50 into $4.80 with Sportingbet for tomorrow night’s Group 1 Sportingbet Megastar at Dapto.

Proven Nitro is now a clear second pick behind favourite Zulu Zeus, which has eased slightly from $2.20 to $2.25.

“Proven Nitro is a huge chance from the red and punters have snapped up our opening price,” Sportingbet Australia spokesman Andrew Brown said.

Favourite Zulu Zeus, a son of champion stud dog Where’s Pedro, set the Dapto track alight last Thursday night when breaking the track record in a solo trial by stopping the clock at 29.46.

“Zulu Zeus should be able to balance up from the 8 box and charge into that all-important first turn,” Sportingbet Australia spokesman Andrew Brown said.

Queensland superstar Glen Gallon has remained steady at $5.50 with Sportingbet, but National Derby winner Jagger Swagger had drifted from $7.50 to $8.00.

Peter Rocket has been well supported from $9.50 into $8.

Sportingbet is also offering its popular Best Tote Plus on the Sportingbet Megastar, where punters can take advantage of the best dividend of the three TABs plus an additional 5% boost to winnings.

The 2013 Sportingbet Megastar is the first ever Group 1 race, of any code, run in the Illawarra region of NSW.
