"Front Page is always a popular horse whenever it goes around and the Town Plate is no different with our customers embracing the Geoff Duryea-trained galloper," TAB's Andrew Georgiou said.
"Brutality has caught the eye of punters in the Cup on Friday with the eachway odds too good to refuse for some."
