Today is the last chance punters have to get in on the generous ante-post betting odds for the 2010 Melbourne Cup as the Melbourne Cup field of acceptances will be released after the racing action of Victoria Derby Day this afternoon.
The ante-post Melbourne Cup 2010 markets offer the hottest odds and best price on all 47 horses heading towards the $6 million handicap feature next Tuesday, November 2.
After the 24-horse Melbourne Cup final field is released this afternoon, final acceptances closing at 5pm before the highly anticipated Melbourne Cup barrier draw live from Flemington at 6:30pm, the odds on all the Melbourne Cup runners will shorten dramatically.
If you want to win big this Melbourne Cup then you need to lock in the longest odds so now is the time to put your Melbourne Cup tips and predictions to the ultimate test by backing your favourites at Luxbet now!
Reigning Melbourne Cup champion Shocking is the warm favourite at $4.20 followed by dual Cox Plate champion So You Think paying $5.50.
These two will face off in the Mackinnon Stakes today, and these prices are sure to shorten.
All the other Melbourne Cup runners are at double figure odds, with the next shortest priced entries being French stayer Americain ($10), Caulfield Cup winner Descarado ($12) and international hopeful Manighar ($13).
You WILL NOT get these prices for the Melbourne Cup horses this afternoon, so head to Luxbet now!
