Punters Weiry of Black Heart Bart in 2016 Memsie Stakes

August 25, 2016

2016 memsie stakesA number of returning spring hopefuls will line-up in the 2016 Memsie Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday, but punters have singled out Black Heart Bart as the one to beat.

The Group 1 Goodwood handicap winner opened favourite with online bookmaker Sportsbet and has continued to garner support.

Black Heart Bart holds the bulk of money and is firm at $2.70.

Costly last start failure Mahuta still has his share of admirers evidenced by the four-year-old firming from $8.00 into $6.00.

Palentino, a stablemate of Black Heart Bart and Mahuta, is also fancied, tightening from $7.00 into $6.50.

“It will be a case of Achy Breaky Heart if Black Heart Bart doesn’t salute on Saturday,” said Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.

“Punters jumped aboard when the market opened, money continues to come for him and he holds 25 percent of wagers.”
