Track specialist Stop Line has been backed as if unbeatable in the $25,000-to-the-winner Devonport Chase final on Tuesday.
The TAB opened Stop Line at $3 last week and he quickly firmed to $2.20 but continued support has seen his price shrink dramatically to $1.55.
As a result, the only other finalists under double-figure odds are big market drifters - Stanley Gordon from $2.40 to $4 and Chiefs Empire from $5 to $7.50.
The Jillian Stamford-trained Stop Line has an imposing record on the Devonport track, with 19 wins and eight placings from 28 starts.
He wasn't the easiest or fastest heat winner last week but was still dominant scoring by almost three lengths in 25.66.
After jumping midfield from box 3, he stayed on the rail where there wasn't much room before going inside the leader on the home turn and drawing clear.
He has box 1 in the final and he's won three of his four starts from that draw at Devonport. His only defeat was at his first start on the track back in July last year.
The tab.com.au market is - 1.55 Stop Line; 4.00 Stanley Gordon; 7.50 Chiefs Empire; 13.00 Ned Isakoff; 16.00 Leica Prayer; 19.00 Sacred Shadow; 21.00 Bridwood Masrhal; 61.00 Speedy Deneholme.
UNBEATEN bitch Tone Deaf will be chasing her fifth win when she makes her Launceston debut on Monday night.
The Graeme Moate-trained juvenile won her first three starts in Hobart before scoring at Devonport a fortnight ago.
She has drawn 5 in the opening race but has the speed to get across as she showed in Hobart two starts ago when she began brilliantly from the same box and won by almost seven lengths.
