  • Posted By:

The Chris Waller trained Silverball will carry a light weight in the Metropolitan but has been heavily backed to win the race.
The grey has firmed from $17 into $8.00, with online bookmaker
His impressive win in last Saturday’s Hill Stakes has lifted Silverball to equal favourite with Magic Hurricane.
Another last start winner, Complacent, is equal third pick with his Godolphin stablemate, Hauraki, on $11.
Astronomos ($15) is also in the mix with punters.
“There was a lot to like about Silverball’s win last Saturday. He had to lump 58kg and finished the race off strongly. He drops to 53kgs in the Metropolitan and the extra distance of 2400m will suit,’’’s Will Byrne said.
