2012 Melbourne Cup Nominations

While the major tracks in Sydney and Melbourne are gearing up for the autumn, already punters and race fans are looking ahead to the spring and the country’s premier thoroughbred event, the Melbourne Cup 2012.

Atlantic Jewel

Boom filly Atlantic Jewel is one of the early 2012 Melbourne Cup betting favourites

Officially the world’s richest handicap, the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) always runs at the famous Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday of November.

The 2012 Melbourne Cup race date is then Tuesday November 6, the race to run as Flemington Race 7 at 3:00pm (VIC time).

Already futures Melbourne Cup odds are out at the country’s leading online bookmakers including Luxbet.

Early favourites in these pre-nomination Melbourne Cup betting markets include 2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain ($21 Luxbet), last year’s Thousand Guineas champion Atlantic Jewel ($21 Luxbet), Peter Snowden’s Victoria Derby runner-up Induna ($21 Luxbet), crack German import Lucas Cranach ($21 Luxbet) who ran third in the Melbourne Cup last year, and Red Cadeaux ($21 Luxbet) who went down by the narrowest of Melbourne Cup margins when second to Dunaden in 2011.

These markets are of course tentative as no horses have officially been entered for the 2012 Melbourne Cup field as yet.

One great thing about the early Melbourne Cup odds at Luxbet, however, is the fact Luxbet are refunding all Melbourne Cup bets placed on horses in these All-In markets that are not nominated for the ‘race that stops a nation’.

So when are the 2012 Melbourne Cup nominations taken?

Last year the first round of entries were taken on Thursday September 1, one month later than Melbourne Cup nominations had traditionally closed in early August.

It is expected that Racing Victoria will continue with this Melbourne Cup nomination schedule and that the Melbourne Cup 2012 nominations will be taken around September 6, 2012.

Of course, this date is approximate until confirmed by the VRC.

Races.com.au aim to be the go-to racing site for all of your Melbourne Cup field and betting updates, so make sure you stay tuned over the coming months.
