The final 24-horse Melbourne Cup 2012 field (3200m) has been announced, with the prestigious Group 1 staying race to take place at Flemington on Tuesday.

This year’s Melbourne Cup field is considered to be one of the strongest in recent times and contains no surprises.

Heading the field are French former Melbourne Cup winners Americain and Dunaden who are the favourites at bookmaker.com.au for the $6 million staying test.

One of the biggest talking points of this year’s Melbourne Cup field is the inclusion of Chris Waller-trained gelding Kelinni who earned his spot in the field by winning the Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington today.

The British import will be ridden by Glen Boss and received no penalty for his Lexus win meaning he will carry just 51kg.

In past years there have been major attrition rates leading into the announcement of the Melbourne Cup field but just 2011 Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed was withdrawn from the top 24 horses today.

It is a star-studded field dominated by international horses including 2011 runner-up Red Cadeaux, Luca Cumani-trained pair Mount Athos and My Quest For Peace, American St Leger winner Jakkalberry and the Godolphin-owned Cavalryman.

Prominent locally-trained horses in the field include Cox Plate fourth placegetter Ethiopia, Peter Moody-trained mare Lights Of Heaven, 2010 runner-up Maluckyday and Lloyd Williams-owned pair Mourayan and Green Moon.

High profile Australian trainer Gai Waterhouse is still striving to achieve her first Melbourne Cup victory and has accepted with both Caulfield Cup failure Glencadam Gold and her recently acquired import Fiorente.

Legendary Australian trainer Bart Cummings narrowly missed out on getting Dare To Dream into the field when he finished second to Kelinni in the Lexus Stakes but will still have two runners with Precedence and American import Sanagas.

Cummings is a Melbourne Cup legend having won 12 titles with the most recent Viewed in 2008.

Others in the field include Irish stayer Galileo’s Choice, Team Hawkes’ Niwot, Leon Corstens-trained four-year-old Zabeelionaire, imports Winchester and Voila Ici and Michael Kent-trained pair Unusual Suspect and Tac De Boistron.

French pair Brigantin and Shahwardi were considered big chances if they were to make the field but connections paid dearly for not running in today’s ballot exempt races as did Godolphin who saw Lost In The Moment miss out.

Ciaron Maher-trained gelding Moudre moved into the final 24 when Southern Speed was withdrawn this morning but was the unlucky runner to make way for Kelinni.

Need to know the final 2011 Melbourne Cup finishing order? Look no further with all the information you need to know exactly where your horse finished in the race that stops a nation.

At the top of the field it was the closest finish in the history of the race with Dunaden just getting up ahead of Red Cadeaux on the line.

Lucas Cranach run a tough race to hold on for second while Americain put in a huge performance to come from nowhere and run into the photo.

Amazingly the top seven horses where all overseas trained runners with only two Australian trainers taking home any prize money at all.

For those playing the office sweeps it was Modun that was eased down to last on the line.

Duanden paid a healthy $9.20 top price at Luxbet while Red Cadeaux was a massive $14.30 for second and Lucas Cranach $4.50 for third.

If you missed out this year then at least get yourself on at Luxbet in preparation for the 2010 Melbourne Cup.

You’ll thank yourself that morning when rather than fighting the crowds down at the local TAB you can log onto Luxbet in your own home and have your bets on in minutes.

Having kept our ears out for the trackside whispers ahead of the 2011 Melbourne Cup at Flemington today, and having kept a close eye on the 2011 Melbourne Cup betting market movers and shakers, all reports are that we are already on the winner with our earlier Melbourne Cup Tip to Win Americain ready to go back-to-back in the world’s richest handicap.

Americain

Americain is the 2011 Melbourne Cup betting late mail tip

The $6 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) is not far away, the testing two-mile handicap due to jump at 3:00pm (local time) as Flemington Race 7 and Americain is sitting pretty in the Melbourne Cup 2011 betting markets at Luxbet.

Luxbet have been offering punters the premium Melbourne Cup odds and betting options since markets opened, and they currently have Americain as the firm $5 favourite to win their second Melbourne Cup on the trot.

Money has also steadily flowed in on Niwot in the Melbourne Cup betting markets at Luxbet, the eleventh-hour entry gaining a start thanks to a terrific win in The Lexus Stakes at Flemington last Saturday.

Niwot, “to win” spelt backwards, is out to do just that today – win the Melbourne Cup 2011.

The punters are getting behind them to do it as well, Niwot one of the genuine Melbourne Cup betting market movers in from $15 at the start of the week to $8.50

Other 2011 Melbourne Cup Betting Market Movers are:

  • #9 Lucas Cranach – $13 into $12 at Luxbet – Our pick to add into the Melbourne Cup Betting Exacta with Americain for value at Luxbet. Don’t just back the winner, really clean up with the Melbourne Cup exotics!
  • #11 Precedence – $51 into $41 at Luxbet – Still a roughie in the Melbourne Cup betting markets but is prepared by the best in the business Bart Cummings. Worth a look in for Melbourne Cup First Four bets at Luxbet.
  • #22 Tullamore – $26 into $21 at Luxbet – One of two gallopers representing Gai Waterhouse today, has the right lead-up form with a third in the Caulfield Cup and second in the Moonee Valley Cup, but may be a little worn after all their hard work. Definite chance in the Melbourne Cup Trifecta at Luxbet.

To view the full 2011 Melbourne Cup betting odds and exclusive markets, hit up Luxbet now.

The Melbourne Cup 2011 odds took a bit of a shake up this morning when Mourayan was a late scratching from the Cup.

Luxbet left the favourite Americain at $5 but the second favourite Dunaden tumbled in to $8 from $9 with Luxbet.

Americain

Americain winning last year's Cup - repeat time!

But a closer look at Melbourne Cup 2011 odds sees glaring firmer Niwot.

At the start of the week this horse wasn’t even in the Melbourne Cup field but now he is the big Melbourne Cup 2011 odds mover.

He has tumbled in drastically form $101 from the start of the week to ber $8.50 with Luxbet.

Those Melbourne Cup 2011 odds reflect the factors that favour the John Hawkes trained galloper

He loves Flemington, handles wet and dry, has a low weight, is in form by winning Saturday’s Lexus Stakes and is trained by a good family team who trained Maluckyday to run second in last year’s Cup.

Two trainers not in the Cup have given their tips.

 Peter Snowden and Guy Walter won the first two races at Flemington with Walter picking Americain but Snowden settling for At First Sight.

At First Sights Melbourne Cup 2011 odds with Luxbet is $13 in from $14 - slight firmer in the Melbourne Cup 2011 odds.

All Melbourne Cup 2011 odds shorteners include on Luxbet include.

  •  Dunaden $9 into $8
  •  Glass Harmonium $34 into $31
  •  Lucas Cranach $13 into $12.
  •  Precedence $51 into $41
  •  Red Cadeaux $35 into $31
  •  Illo $21 into $19
  •  Lost In The Moment $35 into $26
  •  Saptapadi $101 into $81
  • Tullamore $26 into $21
  •  Niwot $101 into $8.50.

Notice in Melbourne Cup 2011 odds the Bart Cummings pair Illo and Precedence have been backed

Bart reckons Americain and has played down his horses.

But then again he didn’t say much about Viewed when he won the 2008 Melbourne Cup.

We like what Bart likes Americain, money is saying Niwot but it is a bit of a raffle after that.

Join today using the code MATCHBET and your first deposit will be matched dollar for dollar.

You can claim as little as $25 or as much as $500 so it’s up to you how much free money you’re after.

The 2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips are wide and varied except for the one horse that is on everyone’s lips – last year’s Cup winner Americain.

The French trained, Australian owned. American named galloper is Luxbet $5 favourite and favoured in most 2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips polls throughout Australia.

Most paper polls in Australia have him clearly on top, reflecting betting and form.

 

Americain
Americain favourite for Cup repeat!

We can go past him either

2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips are.

  •  #1 Americain: He is undefeated in Australia in three starts. Two from last year in the Geelong Cup and Melbourne Cup and the Moonee Valley Cup this year. The jockey Gerard Mosse got off and said he only used 70% of his resources when winning the Moonee Valley Cup – He is back for a repeat and it is looking good. He is our top horse 2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips Luxbet odds $5
  •  #3 Dunaden: He is another French runner who is literally following in the footsteps of Americain. He won this year’s Geelong Cup at his only Australian start impressively. It wil be a story as Craig Williams was supposed to ride but misses out through suspension. French jockey Christophe Lemaire takes the reins for his first ride in Australia. Luxbet odds $8
  •  #23 Niwot: The money just keeps coming for the Lexus Stakes winner whodrops four kilograms for that easy win on Saturday. He like the first two will run the 3200m of the Melbourne Cup right out and must be added in. He gets our nod for third. Luxbet odds $9
  • #17 At First Sight is the tip of rival trainer Peter Snowden whodoesn’t have a horse in the race. Snowden is having a great carnival with his own horses and lets see how he picks others. This horse ran a bottler in the Bendigo Cup last Wednesday and drops in weight. He makes up our first four. Luxbet odds $13 The 2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips best bolter?
  • #16 Modun: One of Sheikh Mohammed’s runners. While the Sheikh has come close to winning the Melbourne Cup he hasn’t quite done it. This fella gives him a chance and if you are looking for him in the race- he is the big horse 17 hands. Lightly raced Modun could be the surprise. Luxbet odds $26

The official 2011 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw was taken last Saturday live from Flemington Racecourse, home to the Melbourne Cup 2011 at 3:00pm (local time) this afternoon.

Unusual Suspect

Unusual Suspect is Horse No. 7 in the Melbourne Cup field and they are now drawn in Barrier 7

Originally a capacity Melbourne Cup field of 24 horses was accepted and therefore there were 24 Melbourne Cup barriers allocated.

Defending Melbourne Cup winner and clear favourite in the Melbourne Cup odds at Australia’s leading online bookmaker Luxbet is French raider Americain paying $5 to become the sixth horse in history to win multiple editions of the ‘race that stops a nation’.

In the Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw 2011 Americain was initially set to jump from gate 15 of 24.

This barrier draw for the Melbourne Cup betting favourite was four wider than the gate they jumped from 12 months ago to win last year’s Melbourne Cup.

However this morning there was a Melbourne Cup field & barrier update with #10 Mourayan officially scratched from the race.

Mourayan was drawn in barrier 14, which means Americain will now move into this gate as they look to salute for all the punters madly backing them for the win at Luxbet.

Note that the updated 2011 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw means:

-          Barrier 23 is now the widest gate with #20 Shamrocker ($51 Luxbet) stuck with the ‘visitors draw’

-          Barrier 18 which has never produced a Melbourne Cup winner now belongs to #8 Fox Hunt ($26 Luxbet)

-          Barrier 11 which Americain jumped from to win last year’s Melbourne Cup has #9 Lucas Cranach ($11 Luxbet) lining up in

-          Horse #7 Unusual Suspect ($41 Luxbet) lines up in Barrier 7 now – a fact for the superstitious punters at Luxbet!

See below for the full list of Melbourne Cup horses and their updated 2011 Melbourne Cup barriers.

Whether you are locking in a Melbourne Cup bet based on the barriers, form, market movers or just a gut feeling you will get the best prices at Luxbet!

The seven-year-old will jump from barrier 14 in the 2011 Melbourne Cup and will be ridden by last year’s winning jockey Gerald Mosse.

Americain is currently paying odds of $5 to win the 2011 Melbourne Cup at Luxbet.
