Mackinnon Stakes Betting Tips – Melbourne Cup Carnival Derby Day Race 5

The first major feature at Flemington’s Victoria Derby Day today and one of the most important final lead-ups to the 2010 Melbourne Cup next Tuesday is Race 5 – the $ 1million Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) due to jump at 2:05pm (AEDST).

The 2010 Mackinnon Stakes field features 12 elite gallopers lead by dual Cox Plate champion So You Think dominating the odds at $1.80 through Luxbet.

So You Think has not put a hoof wrong this spring and has only been beaten once in the past 12 months.

An imposing record, master trainer behind the preparation and the Melbourne Cup in his sights, So You Think is the deserved favourite here

Flemington – Race 5 – Mackinnon Stakes

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #6 So You Think – Rated Special to Win at $1.80 Luxbet
  • Best for Upset: #1 Shocking – $7 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #8 Shoot Out and #3 C’est La Guerre

If it is an upset you are after, reigning Melbourne Cup champion Shocking is the best runner to provide it. Had an eye-catching run in the Caulfield Cup and has a sensational four from five record here at Flemington. Great price at $7 – go Each Way.

Meanwhile, the Mackinnon Stakes Trifecta could be a juicy little prize for punters that add the outsiders Shoot Out and C’est La Guerre into the mix.

Shoot Out is an honest galloper that cannot be discounted with a good barrier two draw, while 2008 Melbourne Cup third placegetter C’est La Guerre is the value bet at $51.

So get in on the Derby Day action and place your Mackinnon Stakes bets at Luxbet, there’s a good chance you will be backing the 2010 Melbourne Cup winner!
