Faint Perfume Pre-Nomination Favourite for 2010 Melbourne Cup

As the 2010 Melbourne Cup nears closer the likely runners that will take to the Flemington track on the first Tuesday of November are starting to emerge, with Bart Cummings’ classy filly Faint Perfume the pronounced favourite in the early Melbourne Cup betting markets.

This year the Melbourne Cup will celebrate its 150th anniversary, with top class stayers around the world already in preparation for a run in the famous handicap.

With a record $6 million in prizemoney plus trophies on offer for the winning Melbourne Cup horse and their connections, punters are also gearing up for one of Australia’s biggest and most lucrative days of betting.

Already the ante-post Melbourne Cup betting markets are attracting big bets as people are keen to get in early and secure the lucrative pre-nomination prices, with the punters getting behind legendary trainer Bart Cummings to secure his record 13th Melbourne Cup victory with Faint Perfume.

A three-year-old Shamardal filly, Faint Perfume drew lots of attention as a possible Melbourne Cup runner in the 2010 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival at the start of the year when she enjoyed a win in the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes (2000m) at Randwick and then placed a gallant second to Once Were Wild in the Group 1 AJC Australian Oaks (2400m) last start.

Other early favourites in the 2010 Melbourne Cup, scheduled as Race 7 at Flemington on Tuesday November 2, include Robert Hickmott’s promising Galileo gelding Linton and Irish mare Profound Beauty representing trainer Dermot Weld.

Melbourne Cup betting will really start to heat up when the list of nominations is announced and Ladbrokes.com.au open their early markets in August.

The final field of starters for the 2010 Melbourne Cup are then announced after the final declarations at the end of October. Bookmark this page as we will be the first to publish the 2010 Melbourne Cup final field and form.
