Epsom market says Epsom a battle between three

The Chris Waller pair of D’Argento and Unforgotten along with Greg Hickman's Pierata top the market for the $1m, Group 1 TAB Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

D’Argento is the $4 favourite, ahead of Unforgotten at $4.50 and Pierata at $5.

Pierata has barrier four with 54kg under Corey Brown, D'Argento barrier one with 53.5kg under James McDonald and Unforgotten barrier three with 52.5kg under Kerrin McEvoy. 

“The punters have essentially nailed it down to three chances in the TAB Epsom and they are drawn between barriers one and four, which may not be ideal in the capacity field,” TAB’s Gerard Middleton said.

“Today the best backed runner has been Pierata, though we also expect Unforgotten to be a bad result in our book on Saturday.”

During the barrier draw on Tuesday morning a punter outlaid $5,000 at $6.00 on Pierata with the bookmaker reporting that the  biggest market wager so far is a $7,500 bet at $8 on Pierata.

In other news a wager was made on Tuesday of $26,000 at $3 on Gerald Ryan's Trapeze Artist in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday. Trapeze Artist and Redzel share $3.00 as the All In favourites for the race.

There are currently nine nominations for the Premiere Stakes, a crucial lead-up race for the $13m, The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 13th with Trapeze Artist the current $5.00 favourite. Acceptances for the Premiere Stakes are taken on Wednesday morning.
