Melbourne Cup 2012 – Early Betting Markets

January 19th, 2012

Early betting markets have been released for the 2012 Melbourne Cup, which will take place at Flemington racecourse on Tuesday November 6, 2012.

Americain, Atlantic Jewel, Induna, Lucas Cranach and Red Cadeaux are all equal favourites to win the 2012 Melbourne Cup at Luxbet and are paying odds of $21.

Red Cadaeux finished second to Dunaden in what was the closest photo finish in the Melbourne Cup’s 151 year history last November.

He is widely tipped to return for revenge in 2012 and the early betting markets reflect this.

Atlantic Jewel has earned her Melbourne Cup favouritism by annihilating her rivals in all five of her career starts.

The Fastnet Rock filly most recently won the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes last October by an incredible seven lengths before falling victim for a muscle strain that saw her miss the Group 1 VRC Oaks.

Lucas Cranach finished a gallant third in last year’s Melbourne Cup, while Americain finished a nose behind in fourth.

Both are now trained in Australia and are expected to run again in the 2012 Melbourne Cup.

Induna finished second by a head to Sangster in the Group 1 Victoria Derby last start.

The three-year-old gelding has won two of his nine race starts and has earned more than $350,000 in prize money.
