With a little under two hours left until the 2010 Melbourne Cup start time, the Races.com.au team report the Melbourne Cup field changes that could affect the Melbourne Cup odds and betting.
After the last update regarding the scratching of Bauer and the subsequent Melbourne Cup barrier moves for the remaining 23 runners in Race 7 at Flemington today, another alteration to the Melbourne Cup field has occurred.
Melbourne Cup winning jockey Blake Shinn has been injured and withdrawn as the rider for the Bart Cummings-trained Precedence.
Zabeel five-year-old Precedence is now due to be ridden by James Wink in the 150th Melbourne Cup today.
The Melbourne Cup field is still lead by clear favourite So You Think paying $3 at Luxbet.
Cummings’ top chance to win his record 13th Melbourne Cup today, So You Think has moved into barrier two for the run.
This could prove a little too close to the rails and if So You Think is caught in the choppy inside ground, the chance of an upset in the Melbourne Cup result today increases.
So have a look at the Melbourne Cup field and barrier draw below to assess the chances of the other Melbourne Cup runners today, drawn a little further off the rails.
Barriers 7 – 15 have proved successful in recent Melbourne Cups bringing into contention the likes of Americain (barrier 11) and Harris Tweed (barrier 12), both runners also well suited to the current Flemington track conditions.
So head to Luxbet now to view the odds on all the runners in the Melbourne Cup field.
