With the action of the spring racing season already underway in Australia, more and more 2010 Melbourne Cup Carnival contenders are emerging each week making for some exciting early markets!

The jewel race of the year is the $6 million Melbourne Cup (3200m), celebrating its 150th anniversary on Tuesday November 2.

In recent 2010 Melbourne Cup news a number of nominees have enjoyed victory in the lead-up to the Flemington feature improving their chances and shortening their odds at Ladbrokes.

Among the movers in the Melbourne Cup markets include British galloper Sans Frontieres who won the Group 3 Geoffrey Free Stakes at Newbury, Colin Johnston Handicap winner Moudre and the Alain de Royer Dupre-trained Americain.

Meanwhile, two top hopes for the Melbourne Cup are looking in doubt of making an appearance.

Japanese stayer Jaguar Mail is unlikely of making the trip to Australia due to quarantine delays, and 2007 Melbourne Cup winner Efficient is tipped to be withdrawn after continued leg issues.
