Terror To Love is now the Fixed Odds favourite for the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup after being crunched in due to his record-breaking win in yesterday’s Ashburton Flying Stakes, and T.A.B Bookmaker Steve Richardson says that is the way it will stay.
“The only way Christen Me will start favourite now is if Terror To Love is withdrawn,” said Richardson.
“The public may make Christen Me the tote favourite on the day because of his more high profile trainer and driver, but in our eyes Terror To Love, on his current form and distance record, has to be the current favourite,” stressed Richardson.
Richardson also said that Terror To Love’s training plan looks as though it will have him 100% ready on Cup Day, and that on both occasions Terror To Love has been beaten this season, Court has stated that he was not entirely screwed down.
Christen Me is now a $2.70 second favourite, while Australian raiders Suave Stuey Lombo and Caribbean Blaster, are equal third favourites at odds of $15.
