The Melbourne Cup 2010 is running today, the biggest horse racing and betting event in Australia every year. Read on for our top Melbourne Cup 2010 tips, that may not be as expected as you think.
Our top pick for the 2010 Melbourne Cup is So You Think, just as it is for everyone else. Undefeated season including a Cox Plate and Mackinnon Stakes win plus barrier 3 start makes So You Think the shortest price favourite in decades for a reason.
However, So You Think remains untested at two miles, and has not ventured far beyond 2000 metres. For this reason, we recommend you also consider a few other likely contenders.
First off is Descarado, winner of the Caulfield Cup and second place finisher in the Mackinnon Stakes. He is proven at a longer distance than the favourite and has proven an excellent performer on wet tracks. If So You Think cannot stay the distance, Descarado could win Gai Waterhouse her first Melbourne Cup – and first Cups Double!
For our other place picks and outside win chances, we are looking at Harris Tweed, Monaco Consul, Linton and Shoot Out. All proven on wet tracks, the 2010 Melbourne Cup looks custom made for them all to perform well.
