ODDS: Lowndes/Skaife still the bookies’ favourite

Lowndes and Skaife

Craig Lowndes and Mark Skaife are the favourites heading into today's Bathurst 1000

The #888 TeamVodafone Commodore of Craig Lowndes and Mark Skaife remains the bookies’ favourite for today’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

With a combined nine Bathurst victories, Sportsbet have the all-star pairing at $3.40 to win the race, and just $1.55 for a podium finish.

The Orrcon Steel Falcon of Mark Winterbottom/Luke Youlden has firmed to $5.50 after Winterbottom scored pole position yesterday – making them second favourites.

Among the leading contenders, Speedcafe.com.au sees $6.00 for Jamie Whincup/Steve Owen as the best value.

At $34, the Brad Jones Racing entries of Jason Bright/Matt Haliday and Jason Richards/Andrew Jones are also appealing to those who prefer ‘dark horse’ contenders.

In the manufacturer stakes, Holden are clear favourites, paying $1.25 for the win compared to $3.75 for Ford.

And what about last year’s Great Race winner Will Davison? The #22 Toll Holden Racing Team driver is out to $15 – pretty long odds for a man who is the reigning race victor …
