Melbourne Cup 2017 Odds - Almandin firms into $6.50 favourite to go back-to-back in Melbourne Cup

  • Almandin the early favourite for the 2017 Melbourne Cup
  • Hartnell, Red Cardinal and Sir Isaac Newton on the second line of betting
Almandin defeats Heartbreak City in the 2016 Melbourne Cup

Almandin has firmed into $6.50 favourite to claim back-to-back wins in the Melbourne Cup following his victory in the 2016 race that stops a nation.

The former German galloper carried the colours of owner Lloyd Williams to victory at Flemington in the 2016 Melbourne Cup when holding off Heartbreak City in a thrilling finish to win at odds of $11.

Online bookmaker Sportsbet installed Almandin as the $17 outright favourite for the 2017 Melbourne Cup, but he is now just $6.50 following a hugely impressive victory in the Listed Japan Racing Association Trophy at Flemington on September 16.

The Darren Weir-trained Humidor is now the second favourite behind Almandin having been cut from $31 into $15 to win the Melbourne Cup on the back of his victory in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington.

Admire Deus ($18), the former Japanese trained galloper who will run for Weir, and international raiders Francis Of Assisi ($21) and Red Cardinal ($21) are next in the betting ahead of mare Kiwi mare Bonneval ($21).
