Two time Stradbroke Handicap winner Black Piranha is challenging Beaded for favouritism in Saturday’s race after the latter drew badly in barrier 17.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said punters had switched attention to the Con Karakatsanis trained veteran.
“There was a move for Black Piranha yesterday with him backed in from $7.00 to $6.00 but that has intensified since the final field market went up today and he’s now into $5.50,” said Sullivan.
“Some strong pre-post betting has Beaded still a $5.00 favourite but I wouldn’t be surprised to see them swap in the next day or so.
“Black Piranha has the score on the board and he’s proved before that Eagle Farm suits him perfectly.
One time Stradbroke favourite Sincero has firmed from $9.50 to $9.00 after drawing well in barrier 4.
