Unbeaten bitch Black Opium drew box five for Friday night’s Melbourne Cup greyhound Final and punters are staying loyal.
Black Opium is unbeaten in seven starts and the squeeze box will make her task that much tougher. It hasn’t deterred punters though, she has won from the five box before and she’s still the best supported runner for the Sandown group 1 and solid $3.10 favourite.
My Redeemer is the big firmer after drawing the coveted rails box. My Redeemer firmed from $6.50 into $3.90 and is third favourite.
Poke The Bear is the second pick at $3.50.
