Shocking Overtakes So You Think as 2010 Melbourne Cup Favourite

Mark Kavanagh’s reigning champion Shocking has overtaken So You Think as the outright favourite to win the 2010 Melbourne Cup on Tuesday November 2 after big money has come in for the defending Melbourne Cup winner today.

Earlier this morning Bart Cummings’ superstar So You Think sat at the top Melbourne Cup betting markets after punters backed him into favouritism for the $6 million handicap following his stunning Cox Plate win last Saturday.

However, with doubts emerging over So You Think’s ability to last the 3200m distance of the Melbourne Cup, the attention has been refocused on Street Cry five-year-old Shocking.

Premier online bookmaker Luxbet now have Shocking as the $4.40 favourite in their Melbourne Cup odds, with So You Think on the second line of betting paying $4.80.

The other mover in the market is Luca Cumani’s Manighar, the third favourite firming in from $13 to $12 today.

Manighar emerged as a genuine Melbourne Cup contender with an eye-catching fifth place finish in the Caulfield Cup a fortnight ago, and having originally been at a quote of around $50 before heading to Australia, punters that got on the five-year-old in the earlier markets could enjoy a sweet reward on Melbourne Cup Day.

The changes in the Melbourne Cup odds indicate that Shocking will start the favourite in the 2010 Melbourne Cup as he seeks back-to-back success in the world’s richest handicap.

Shocking will further firm in the market with a good run in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington’s Victoria Derby Day this Saturday, where he will face off with So You Think.
