Ten Sovereigns Enjoying Market Support Down Under

The Everest

Aidan O'Brien's leading sprinter Ten Sovereigns has been sent to Australia to compete at Royal Randwick in what is classed as the richest race on turf in the Everest this weekend.

The eventual winner will take home A$3,432,600 with an overall purse of 14 million and overnight there has been some big movements in the betting markets for the Irish raider.

Bet365 advertised the three year old in the early hours of this morning at 25/1 but now he is 10/1 at the majority of online bookmakers.

Ballydoyle's first string rider Ryan Moore was set to head to Ascot for British Champions Day but now will fly over to Australia and sit about Ten Sovereigns.

This may have been the reason for the huge market support overnight but it does say a lot that Moore will miss a huge book of rides on some of Aidan O'Brien's best horses for the one ride in Australia.

Ten Sovereigns is a very capable three year old that has only shown how good he can be once this season when landing the Group One July Stakes at Newmarket.

As a two year old he showed straight away he was a sprinter in the making when taking the Group One Middle Park Stakes but this season was tried at a mile and also five furlongs where both didn't suit.

six furlongs is his ideal trip and that is exactly what he is going back to on Saturday with what is set to be lightning quick ground that will also play to his strengths.
