100 days to go: Maluckyday holds Melbourne Cup favouritism across the board

July 24, 2011

Maluckyday remains at the head of Melbourne Cup antepost markets with one hundred days left until the great race.

Runner up to Americain last year, the Zabeel gelding has been favourite since the first markets opened, despite a lacklustre autumn.

Just Horse Racing has been momentarily checking markets, with a number of moves and additions since our last check in May.

The most notable addition has been Queensland Oaks winner Scarlett Lady, who is second favourite with Betstar and on the third line of betting with Sportsbet.

Other new additions high up in markets include import December Draw and likely visitor Red Cadeaux.

As these are before nominations markets, there are a lot of horses amongst the 455 that can already be taken out.

These include Shocking (stud), So You Think (other targets), Shez Sinsational (not running) and Rewilding (deceased).

Others are highly unlikely to even be nominated, like Oken Bruce Lee, Yosei, Peck and Squamosa.

Racing Victoria’s international scout Leigh Jordon has said he expects about six to eight international visitors for the race that stops the nation.

Despite this, there are almost 100 international horses in markets, most with betting exchange Betfair.

Last year’s winner Americain is the highest ranked international, while Red Cadeaux, as mentioned previously, looks to be the best supported.

His trainer Ed Dunlop has nominated the Cup as his target.

Other internationals high up in markets include last year’s Irish St Leger winner Sans Frontieres, who has not raced this year and is highly unlikely, and the Luca Cumani-trained Drunken Sailor, who has improved greatly in the last six months.

Likely Hong Kong raider Mighty High also has support.

The markets usually fluctuate wildly after entries close, but with entries pushed back a month, it may not be until September that the first big moves in markets begin to occur.

Melbourne Cup entries now close on September 1, with weights released on September 13.

Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate entries close on August 2.

Here is a snapshot of how the markets have changed since November last year, including current prices with a number of bookmakers:
