Lennytheshark and Smolda head 2016 Victoria Cup betting

January 27, 2016

melton-harnessReigning Inter Dominion champion Lennytheshark will have to overcome a wide barrier if he is to win the Victoria Cup at Melton on Saturday night.

Despite drawing the outside of the front line, online bookmaker Sportsbet has posted Lennytheshark as the equal $2.50 favourite with Smolda.

In the Victoria Derby, the other Group 1 on the program, star New Zealand colt Lazarus is $1.45 favourite ahead of Don’t Hold Back $6.00 and Brallos Pass $10.00.

“It would be great to see Lenny score a hometown victory in the Cup,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

“Jumping from the car park will make Lenny’s task that bit tougher, but he’s a class pacer and should be able to overcome it.”

The $400,000 Group 1 Victoria Cup (2240m) will run on Saturday 30th January 2016 at Tabcorp Park in Melton, Victoria.
