    HE’S yet to break his maiden and is facing a quartet of undefeated opponents, yet Apollostorm has attracted attention in betting markets.

    Fifth upon debut, Apollostorm was then third in one of last week’s Nutrien Sales Series heats, earning him a berth in Saturday night’s Final in Melton.

    One of four Clayton Tonkin-trained runners in the $250,000 feature, Apollostorm has drawn barrier nine.

    Despite the early obstacle and arduous task ahead, the son of Art Major “holds 45 per cent of the market at this early stage” according to TAB’s Nick Smart.

    Midrange in Fixed Odds tables, Apollostorm is at $21, with his stablemate, The Highlight Reel, still favourite despite drifting slightly.

    Winning his two starts in impressive fashion, The Highlight Reel opened at $1.90 before easing to $2.25 from the outside of the front row.

    Boasting victories from three outings, Fate Awaits and Its Confidential are considered the biggest threats at $3.70 and $5.50 from gates 12 and 13.

    Also prepared by Tonkin, Cigano, which made a winning debut in his heat, is another $5.50 danger from barrier 11.

    Tonkin’s fourth runner – Storms Collide – is the only other entrant under double figures at $8.50 from barrier five.

    Storms Collide was triumphant during his debut before finishing second behind The Highlight Reel.
