YUCATAN DOMINATES MELBOURNE CUP BETTING

Comments

Yucatan opened $81 with Sportsbet for the Melbourne Cup but he is now the $4.50 favourite and firming.

Melbourne Cup betting.

We’re eight days out from the Cup and Yucatan is being stamped as the horse to beat. Money came after he won the Herbert Power and has continued to flow at a solid rate.

Yucatan, prepared by Irish ace Aidan O’Brien holds three-times more money than Avilius ($13) and five-times more than second-favourite Magic Circle ($10).

In Saturday’s Victoria Derby, Thinkin’ Big ($3.20 favourite) and Stars Of Carrum ($9.00) are almost level in popularity.

Second favourite, Aramayo ($6.00) is not receiving much love from punters.
