Is Linton the 2010 Melbourne Cup Winner?

Classy Galileo gelding Linton is already giving the Bart Cummings-trained Faint Perfume a run for her money in the 2010 Melbourne Cup, in the early Cup betting markets that is.

With bookies opening up pre-nomination betting for this year’s 150th Melbourne Cup, scheduled as Race 7 at Flemington on Tuesday November 2, punters are getting behind Victorian runner Linton to win the $6 million race.

Bart Cummings’ rising filly Faint Perfume is the early Melbourne Cup favourite following a successful autumn campaign that included an elite level win in the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes (2000m), but money has steadily been coming in for rival Melbourne Cup hopeful Linton.

Trained by Robert Hickmott at Mt. Macedon in Victoria, three-year-old Linton made headlines in the autumn with a stunning campaign that culminated with a win in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley and a gallant third to Rock Classic in the Group 1 Australian Crown Guineas also over 1600m at Flemington.

Despite having had just two wins from four career starts and never having been tested over a distance greater than a ‘mile’, Linton is still a hot favourite for the Melbourne Cup and is sure to top the markets at in his earlier spring carnival races.
