If you’ve done your homework, there is a chance to win big as the last five winners have paid between $10 to $30 with Under The Louvre taking out the honours last year at $10.
After the barrier draw which saw the favourite Clearly Innocent draw the carpark and get pinged a weight of 57kg punters have started to look elsewhere for the potential winner.
Which is where Chris Waller’s Mackintosh steps into the fray.
Kerrin McEvoy will ride him, and the hoop is in excellent form in Group 1 racing winning five of the last 14 races.
Mackintosh is fresh off an extended break and has never been beaten after a break nor at this track (Doomben – two from two). He’s up against fellow stablemate Counterattack who he’s already beaten.
He’s drawn inside, has the blinkers on for the first time and will be ahead of his main rivals before they even know they have to chase him.
