Melbourne Cup 2010 Field & Preview

The field of stayers for the Melbourne Cup 2010 is one of the strongest in recent history, with a host of Australian racing champions plus a tough international contingent ready to face off in the $6 million handicap feature at Flemington tomorrow.

The Melbourne Cup 2010 final field is lead by dual Cox Plate winner So You Think, the Bart Cummings-trained star backed right into $3 at Luxbet to win the 150th edition of the world’s richest handicap.

This is the shortest-priced runner to start in the Melbourne Cup for a number of years, but it doesn’t deter the punters and the money continues to roll in for the Melbourne Cup horse in barrier three.

Other runners set to contest the Melbourne Cup, scheduled as Race 7 and due to jump at 3:00pm (AEDST) tomorrow, that are high up the betting markets include Maluckyday and Shocking.

These two top fancies couldn’t have more different lead-up form.

Maluckyday has just snuck into the Melbourne Cup 2010 field as horse number 24 after a super impressive win in the Group 3 The Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington last Saturday.

Then there is reigning champion Shocking.

The Mark Kavanagh-trained Street Cry five-year-old has been one of the biggest drifters in the Melbourne Cup 2010 markets right out to $12 after opening at $7.

Surprising considering how much points to back-to-back success for this horse.

Shocking may be drawn out wide in barrier 24 and he may be the topweight with 57kg, but he has an outstanding Flemington track record, always hits the line strongly and has had a patiently timed Melbourne Cup lead-up.
