It is one of the hottest topics every year leading up to the first Tuesday of November, will the ‘Cups King’ Bart Cummings do it again? Can Bart secure his bakers’ dozen of Loving Trophies by preparing another Melbourne Cup winner. You can talk about it with your mates down at the pub, or if you are savvy and want to have some cash to spare come the end of Melbourne Cup Day, you can bet on it at Luxbet!
That’s right, as part of Luxbet’s exclusive Melbourne Cup 2011 betting specials they are offering odds on whether Bart Cummings will train the 2011 Melbourne Cup winner.
Cummings holds the record having prepared 12 Melbourne Cup winners throughout the 150-year history of this famous Flemington special, his most recent victory having been with Viewed in 2008.
See our earlier story on Bart Cummings To Defy Critics in 2011 Melbourne Cup for more on Cummings and his incredible contingent of Melbourne Cup winners.
In the Melbourne Cup 2011 field Cummings has two chances with:
- #11 Precedence (Barrier 12) – $41 to Win through Luxbet
Zabeel six-year-old, so is bred for this distance and although they have been disappointing this season, most recently finishing nearly 10 lengths away ninth to fellow Melbourne Cup 2011 rival Glass Harmonium ($ ) in the Mackinnon on Saturday, Bart says he has been waiting for the two-miles.

- #14 Illo (Barrier 1) – $19 to Win through Luxbet
German import has only been with Bart for a few months meaning his magic Melbourne Cup formula has been forgotten. Debuted down under with an eye-catching third to fellow Cup hopefuls Americain ($5 favourite at Luxbet) and Tullamore ($ ) band looks like the lightly-raced improver in the field.
Check out the Pros and Cons of Illo to Win the Melbourne Cup 2011.
While the odds on Cummings’ duo are both very backable, they face a classy field of fellow stayers and will need to improve, yes, but have a lot of luck as well.
If you can’t decide on which of the duo to back for the win, but you just know this year it will be back in the Melbourne Cup winners’ stall for Cummings, head to Luxbet who have you covered with their exclusive markets.
