“It is a big advantage to be on-track because in every race we are betting better prices about most runners than the corporates.
“You don’t have to worry about if you are going to get on because we have to bet you to lose $5000. That’s why the biggest professional punters bet on-course because they will get the best price.”
Sullivan, who has a corporate arm in Bluebet, is ready to follow his mantra and take on the favourite from his stand on Saturday. So the best-placed punters will be among the more than 25,000 expected on track for the Golden Slipper.
“Cosmic Force was impressive but I don’t think in such an open Golden Slipper he will start favourite,” Sullivan said. “I think it could get to a place where you will be able to get $6 whatever runner you like in the Slipper at the track.
“I’m ready to take on Cosmic Force and there are couple of others in betting that I think are way too short.”
Cosmic Force has been well supported at Beteasy from $4.80 to $4.60, with unbeaten Godolphin filly Tenley second pick at $6, while Yes Yes Yes and Microphone share the next line of betting at $7.50.
Dwyer, who’s prices are available at bookie.com.au, said he understands that punters have been drawn to corporate bookmakers and the convenience of betting on their phones.
“Anyone coming to Rosehill should bring their phone and compare what’s on the bookie board to the price they can get,” Dwyer said. “They will be surprised how much better they can do on track.
“Most the guys on the rails will open accounts for punters, which will work the same as the corporates.”
