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.
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
