Will The 2012 Melbourne Cup See Maluckyday Return To Form?

Maluckyday will have the hopes of the nation on his shoulders as Australia looks for a local winner in the 2012 Melbourne Cup.

The six-year-old has won five of his 17 race starts and has earned more than $1.3 million in prize money.

Maluckyday may have a variety of feature titles to his name, however, he has not won a race in the past 24 months.

Despite this, the Zabeel gelding is currently fifth favourite to win the 2012 Melbourne Cup and is the best backed of the Australian runners.

His most recent result was a fifth placing in the Group 3 Geelong Cup at Geelong Racecourse on October 24th.

Maluckyday is currently paying odds of $13 to win the $6 million race at bookmaker.com.au.


Maluckyday is the best backed Australian runner in the 2012 Melbourne Cup this Tuesday.
