Rising star The Quarterback will start his Australian Guineas campaign in the C.S Hayes Stakes on Saturday.
The Street Boss three-year-old has been well backed by punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au and is the $4.50 second pick for the Group 3.
Hucklebuck is the $3.70 favourite, but VRC Derby winner Polanski ($8.50) is well in commission, while Prince Harada looms at $6.00.
“Hucklebuck heads the market, but punters have narrowed it down to Polanski and The Quarterback. Both have been heavily backed with daylight to the rest,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
In Lightning Stakes betting, Samaready has received solid support and has firmed from $3.75 into $3.50. Other fancies, Snitzerland ($4.50) and Bernabeu ($6.00) have eased.
Sportsbet.com.au will refund punters their bet on the Lightning Stakes if their selection runs second.

Earthquake will face 10 rivals in the fillies division of the Blue Diamond Prelude including unbeaten Eloping ($7) and highly rated Top Dolly ($8) but is expected to win after an impressive track gallop earlier this week.
Boom colt Rubick will face a full field in the colts and geldings Prelude but dominates betting after a super debut win.
“Punters who want to grab the $1.85 for Earthquake and Rubick should get their running shoes on because I don’t think it will last long,” Sportingbet’s Michael Felgate said.
“Ratings experts have declared these two year-olds superstars off their debut wins and if the money for them in the Blue Diamond is any guide they will be smashed by punters in the lead-up to Saturday.”
Rubick $3.20 and Earthquake $4.60 dominate betting for the $1 million Sportingbet Blue Diamond to be run on February 22.
