Trots Media’s Inter Dominion poll today asked punters to rank the Inter Dominion runners in order to create 10-horse Grand Final field and the results were interesting.

Breaking down the data, Good Form analyst Jason Bonnington then framed ‘The People’s Market’ based purely on the survey responses.

What we ended up with was a Grand Final field as voted by the people and a market that when compared to TAB.com.au fixed odds prices presented potential value opportunities.

“This market could look quite unbelievable at the end of the series if Lazarus loses because it’s pretty much telling you that you can back seven, eight other horses, steer clear of the $2.40 and you’re probably going to make money out of this,” Bonnington said.

On Lennytheshark, who the people’s market rated $4.50, Bonnington said “it’s unthinkable that he’s on the drift” with TAB.com.au taking on the reigning Miracle Mile champ and easing his price from $4.50 out to $5.50.

“Many people will tell you he races better at Gloucester Park than anywhere else and he represents value according to the people’s market,” Bonnington added.

Some of the key stats from today's survey (95 responded with their top 10 in order) are:

55.79% of people picked Lazarus to win

30.53% of people picked Lennytheshark to win

86.31% of people picked either Lazarus or Lennytheshark to win

6.32% of people picked Soho Tribeca to win

6 horses were placed on top (10 points) - Lazarus (53 times), Lennytheshark 29, Soho Tribeca 6, Chicago Bull and San Carlo 3, and Americanbootscoota 1 (Americanbootscoota was placed 18th of 29 in the people's rankings)

90 of the 95 people tipped Lazarus to finish top-three

82 of 95 tipped Lennytheshark to finish top-three

37 of 95 tipped Chicago Bull to finish top-three

43 of 95 tipped Soho Tribeca to finish top-three

Shandale (99), Devendra (75), Motu Premier (72), Majordan (55) and Lets Chase The Dream (55) missed the People's Final Field but would be in the running for emergency positions

Simply Susational ranked last with just 4 votes, with Vultan Tin and Tanaka Eagle just ahead on 5 votes
