Melbourne Cup Odds - Yucatan and Magic Circle to battle for favouritism

Yucatan

Yucatan and Magic Circle look set to battle it out for favouritism in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Since drawing barrier 23, Herbert Power winner Yucatan has been an easy favourite in the days preceding the race that stops a nation, drifting from $4.50 out to $6.50 with Ladbrokes.

It is the hype-horse Magic Circle who looks set to challenge for top spot at the head of the betting markets ahead of his first run Down Under at Flemington.

Magic Circle is into $7.50 with Ladbrokes and $8.00 with Sportsbet and is the most popular runner with punters.


Godolphin runner Cross Counter, trained by Charlie Appleby, sits on the third line of betting at $9.00 ahead of another who will carry the famous royal blue colours in Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Best Solution, the Caulfield Cup winner who is now $11 to do the double.

Godolphin also have another live chance in $13 shot Avilius for trainer James Cummings with that horse being the shortest priced of the Australian-trained runners.

Chris Waller's Youngstar has been well backed since the barrier draw and is into $15 to win the Melbourne Cup.

But both sit behind two more internationals in John Gosden's Muntahaa and the Hughie Morrison-trained Marmelo (both $12).
