The 2012 Melbourne Cup field and odds have been released and 2010 winner Americain is favourite after drawing barrier 12.

The French star is rated a $5 chance at bookmaker.com.au to claim his second Melbourne Cup title and he will come from a familiar position after winning the race from barrier 11 two years ago.

Fellow French Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden is hot on his tail in the market at $6.50 but will have to overcome a wide barrier 16 draw.

But the barrier shouldn’t pose too much of a problem for last year’s champion who was ridden by Craig Williams to Caulfield Cup victory from the outside last month.

Luca Cumani-trained gelding Mount Athos has featured prominently in Melbourne Cup markets all year and he currently occupies the third line of betting at $8.50.

The emerging stayer drew barrier eight and Cumani said he couldn’t have asked for anything better.

“Eight is great. Before hand when I was asked what draw would you like I said between 8 and 12,” Cumani said.

But Cumani has warned not to discount his other Cup runner, with My Quest For Peace currently at $26.

“I think Mount Athos should be a little bit longer [than he is] and My Quest For Peace a little bit shorter,” he said.

Fourth in the betting market is Red Cadeaux ($9.50) who was a narrow runner-up to Dunaden in 2011.

No other runner falls under double figures, with Australia’s top rated hope Maluckyday the next best in the market at $13.

Maluckyday will be out to turn the tables on Americain after finishing second in Australia’s biggest race in 2010.

Others towards the top of the market include the Lloyd Williams-owned Green Moon ($14) Irish stayer Galileo’s Choice ($17) and Cox Plate fourth Ethiopia ($18).

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

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!

Right now at Luxbet you can also get a $500 Bonus Bet on today’s Melbourne Cup simply by opening a new account, depositing and entering the limited-time-only bonus code MATCHBET!
