The iconic 2010 Melbourne Cup is now less than six hours away and every punter around Australia will be keen to check the current Melbourne Cup 2010 odds for the $6 million Flemington feature.
The red hot favourite is still Bart Cummings’ So You Think, the star High Chaparral four-year-old dominating the Melbourne Cup betting markets since his second successive Cox Plate success a fortnight ago.
So You Think is now into $3 after his $3.10 price yesterday at Luxbet.
Shocking, reigning Melbourne Cup winner coming into today’s race on the back of the ideal preparation, originally drifted from $17 out to $12 but late money in has seen him shorten into $11.
Still top value as one of the only proven performers over the gruelling 3200m distance, unlike So You Think who is yet to race beyond 2040m.
Evergreen veteran Zipping has also been heavily backed over the past 12 hours, the Lloyd Williams-owned nine-year-old one of the best place chances today and represents brilliant value at $26 (in from $29).
Gallant Caulfield Cup runner-up Harris Tweed, a five-year-old New Zealand stayer trained by Murray and Bjorn Baker, is another Melbourne Cup market mover, firming into $26 from $26.
The current Flemington track conditions, rated a Dead 5 still with plenty of give in the ground, suits Harris Tweed well making him an excellent roughie chance to win the Melbourne Cup at 3:00pm (AEDST) today.
All other runners have remained static or drifted in the Melbourne Cup betting at Luxbet.
Horses with genuine claims to add into your Melbourne Cup exotic wagers paying generously include Shoot Out ($31), Profound Beauty ($31) and Monaco Consul ($34).
With the scratching of #18 Bauer from the Melbourne Cup field, withdrawn due to injury, the price on the remaining 23 runners is sure to shorten so now is the time to get the best odds on your Melbourne Cup selections.
