Despite drawing poorly All The Wine and Pujols continue to battle for favouritism for $75,000, The Sportsbet Hotham (1200m) at Ballarat on Friday.
All the Wine drew barrier 11 and Pujols 16 and they head betting on $4.60.
Henry’s Affair, bought specifically for the Victoria’s richest Maiden, has been well backed at $26.
Street Prince ($17) has also received backing for the $75,000 race.
“The two favourites didn’t fare well in the barrier draw, but that hasn’t stopped punters coming for them. This is a race for horses yet to win a race, so anything can happen and probably will,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
