TAB.com.au opened all-in markets on each of the two and three-year-old Breeders Crown finals earlier this week and it didn’t take long for punters to step in with gusto.

The most notably backed horses, as is often the case each year, came from the Shaky Isles with Barry Purdon’s Our Maxim an early shortener from $6.50 into $5 before continued support late into the week saw him as short as $3.80.

The biggest firmer in the early markets came in the three-year-old boys division with the New Zealand bred gelding Chilli Palmer, for Dean Braun, $26 into $11 before the shock scratching of Border Control saw him wound into $8.50.

In the same division Bit Of A Legend for Cran Dalgety continued the theme of Kiwi horses finding support in the market as he was $2.60 into $2.20 and now as short as $1.40 off the back of the second-favourites scratching.

Mindarie Priddy is the sole Australian bred representative to find solid money from the punters but at $2.50 when markets were put up, she found plenty of admirers.

Immediately trimmed into $2.40, the backing didn’t stop with her into $2.25 before more money came to have her at $1.90 before her semi-final is already run.

The other favourite for the series that has continued to be solidly backed is Frith who was as high as $2.50 earlier in the week before the cash came, leaving her the $2.20 outright favourite for the series.

Long-priced followers haven’t missed one at $101 either with lightly raced Susan Hunter-trained filly Still In Denial backed down to $61 by Friday afternoon.

To back any horse pre-post for the finals on August 18 simply follow this link through to TAB.com.au who have a raft of markets available already for Super Sunday.
