Julienas won the traditional lead-up to the Metropolitan, but it was the run of I'm Imposing in defeat which has shaped TAB’s Metropolitan market. The pair ran one-two in Saturday's Colin Stephen Quality at Rosehill and are now high in the market to win next Saturday’s Metropolitan at Randwick.

I'm Imposing, which rattled home late today to finish second, is $35 into $17 in Metrop betting while Julienas remains on the fifth line of betting at $11.


Betting action from the Colin Stephen saw Julienas a heavily backed favourite, with TAB taking bets of $5,000 @ $2.50 and $4,000 @ $2.50.
