Melbourne Cup odds comparison – Maluckyday still favourite

May 1, 2011

With six months today until the Melbourne Cup, Andrew Hawkins has looked at the state of prepost betting for the race.

Although entries are not taken until the start of September, pushed back from the traditional August close of nominations, three of Australia’s largest betting organisations have opened markets on Australia’s biggest race.

Betstar was the first to open, two weeks after the last Melbourne Cup, while Sportingbet opened in early January.

Betfair has since opened trading on the race that stops the nation.

At this stage, there are 373 horses across all three markets – some in all three, some in only two and some in one market.

The consistent favourite has been last year’s Melbourne Cup runner up Maluckyday, and despite two disappointing runs in the autumn, he heads all three markets.

Others who have shortened with Betstar in recent months are BMW winner Cedarberg (81 to 41), Australian Derby winner Shamrocker (41 to 21) and Australian Cup winner Shocking (26 to 21).

Some of the biggest moves have been on the Mike Moroney-trained Absolutelyawesome (151 to 34) and the Lloyd Williams-owned Muir (201 to 67)

Last year’s Melbourne Cup winner Americain has failed to flatter in two runs this year but he has still shortened from 26 to 21.
