James McDonald will be hoping for a quick return...
The 2016 Melbourne Cup results will be known when the ‘race that stops a nation’ runs at 3:00pm (AEDT) this afternoon as Flemington Race 7, but before the two mile classic is run and won see below for the Races.com.au predicted Melbourne Cup finishing order.
It’s a mixed bag for the punters in the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for this year’s $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) – the 156th running of the time-honoured feature – with no standout market mover.
The John O’Shea-trained Hartnell is on the drift in Melbourne Cup odds out to $6, a dollar under what Fiorente ($7 in 2013) jumped at as the only Melbourne Cup favourite to salute in the past decade.
Caulfield Cup winning mare Jameka has drifted out to $8.50 to complete the Spring Cups double and set a new Melbourne Cup weight carrying record for a four-year-old mare under her 54.5kg.
Punters have also shied away from the two shortest-priced international raiders with last weekend’s Lexus Stakes winner Oceanographer out to $9 to emulate Shocking (2009) with a Cup win three days later and the Aidan O’Brien Irish galloper Bondi Beach out to $10 for Team Williams.
So will Hartnell salute for the punters? Will Jameka score the coveted Caulfield – Melbourne Cups double? What will the exact Melbourne Cup results be in 2016?
