Shocking & Americain Firm in 2010 Melbourne Cup Odds

The punters continue to ease off So You Think to win the 2010 Melbourne Cup next Tuesday at Flemington racecourse, with odds on the dual Cox Plate champion further drifting out overnight while the price on Shocking continued to firm.

Yesterday afternoon leading online bookie Luxbet installed Mark Kavanagh’s reigning Melbourne Cup winner Shocking as the $4.40 favourite to win the 150th Emirates Melbourne Cup and go down in history as one of the few runners to win multiple Melbourne Cups.

The punters are now getting back on the Shocking bandwagon and with his price shortening into $4.20.

After getting bumped from the top of the Melbourne Cup betting markets yesterday, the doubts over the Bart Cummings-trained So You Think being paid up for at third acceptance stage on Saturday and then being able to run out the gruelling 3200m Melbourne Cup distance, has seen odds on the superstar drift out from $4.80 to $5 in the past 12 hours at Luxbet.

With the $6 million Melbourne Cup hailed as the ultimate staying test, punters are now eager to back proven performers over the distance.

One runner that has seen big bets come in for them is French galloper Americain.

The Alain de Royer Dupre-trained Geelong Cup winner has been backed into the $12 equal third favourite to win the Melbourne Cup, shortening from their $14 price yesterday.

To get the hottest price on your Melbourne Cup favourites before odds shorten further, head over and sign up with Luxbet now but hurry if you want to be one of the lucky readers to receive the $400 Free Bet Bonus!
