Jukebox Could Play on 2011 Melbourne Cup Day

The Mark Johnson-trained Jukebox Jury has shot up the 2011 Melbourne Cup futures odds after their gallant dead-heat win with Duncan in the closing European classic of the season, the 2011 Irish St Leger at the Curragh over the weekend.

Having recently defeated Kasbah Bliss by three lengths in the Group 2 Prix Kergorlay (30160m) in France, Montjeu five-year-old Jukebox Jury further staked their claims to take out the richest handicap race in the world with their Irish St Leger performance.


Nominated for the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 1 after Australian connections bought a 50 per cent share, Jukebox Jury carted a hefty 62kg in the Irish St Leger and after a gallant effort, was awarded equal first position with the John Gosden-trained Duncan.

Third place went to Red Cadeaux, Ed Dunlop’s Cadeaux Genereux five-year-old also nominated for the 151st edition of the Melbourne Cup.

In the latest 2011 Melbourne Cup odds at Australia’s leading bookmaker Luxbet, Jukebox Jury is installed at $41, with a decision by owners on whether to make the trip down under pending.

Melbourne Cup betting markets are currently lead by the Danny O’Brien-trained Shamrocker at $11, with the shortest-priced of the European contingent being defending Melbourne Cup winner Americain ($21).

There are still 163 horses heading towards the 2011 Melbourne Cup field with no late entries taken last week.

Melbourne Cup 2011 weights are due to be released by Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter tomorrow, Tuesday September 13, and will be published right here at Races.com.au.

Now is the time to get on your early Melbourne Cup betting selections before handicaps affect the odds.
