Fiorente Leads Post-Barrier 2013 Melbourne Cup Odds

Gai Waterhouse’s ideally-drawn Melbourne Cup 2013 hope Fiorente has firmed back into sole favourite to win the world’s richest handicap next Tuesday, November 5, following today’s barrier draw.

Earlier on Derby Day the Monsun stallion was co-favourite in the markets for the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) sitting as a $7.50 chance with the Luca Cumani-trained raider Mount Athos.

After the two top fancies had mixed luck in the Melbourne Cup barrier draw however, bookies have reinstated European import Fiorente as the $7 favourite.

They are also available at a juicy price of $14 in’s exclusive ‘Double The Odds’ markets for the great race.

Mount Athos meanwhile has stayed at their pre-post price of $7.50 ($15 DTO) after coming up with barrier 22, a far from ideal draw for the seven-year-old who ran fifth in the race last year.

They remain the only two gallopers at single-figures in the standard Fixed Win Melbourne Cup odds to add their name to the list of great champions to have taken out the ‘Loving Trophy’.

The genuine Melbourne Cup betting market mover meanwhile has been Verema in from $12 to $11.

Prepared by 2010 Melbourne Cup winning trainer Alain de Royer Dupre (Americain), the French-trained mare won the Group 2 Prix Kergorlay (3000m) last start in August carrying 58.5kg.

It’s a good form race for the Melbourne Cup, and with the five-year-old dropping back to just 53kg and drawing ideally with barrier three the money is rolling in for her to become the third French-trained horse in the past four editions of the race to succeed.

The next best in betting and their moves from the pre-post markets are then:

  • #4 Sea Moon ($13 or $26 DTO) – Steady price for Lloyd Williams’ Herbert Power winner who looks ready to peak when stepped up to the two miles, has an historically poor draw in seven but it should suit them and 56.5kg is a weight they can handle
  • #8 Dandino ($13 or $26 DTO) – Also at their same pre-post price, the Marco Botti-trained raider was runner-up in the Caulfield Cup in their first Australian start which is an excellent lead-up to the Flemington edition, also has a gun alley with barrier four and Ryan Moore to ride
  • #17 Voleuse De Coeurs ($14 or $28 DTO) – Eased out from $12 before the Michael Moroney-trained import, yet to have an official start here, drew barrier 21 giving jockey James McDonald work to do
  • #12 Seville ($17 or $34 DTO) – Another from the Williams-Hickmott six-horse assault on the Cup, Seville won The Metropolitan in Sydney two back before their Cox Plate seventh, have barrier nine which gives them options and Hugh Bowman is in-form winning today’s Derby, price still out from $16 pre-post though
  • #5 Brown Panther ($19 or $38 DTO) – One of the big firmers here in from $21 after coming up with the perfect starting position in barrier six, has been targeted for this race by connections for some time and a genuine chance as they won the Goodwood Cup in August by 3.5 lengths over the distance

Other notable Melbourne Cup market drifters include Clarry Conners’ Mackinnon runner-up Dear Demi ($14 out to $16) who will jump from barrier 16 with Chris Munce riding, the Chris Waller-trained Hawkspur ($14 out to $17) after they drew the only Melbourne Cup barrier yet to produce a winner (18) and Waterhouse’s French import Tres Blue ($18 out to $21) with barrier 20 to overcome.
