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).

The 2012 Melbourne Cup barrier draw has taken place for Tuesday’s $6 million staying race with top fancy Americain receiving barrier 12.

The French stayer is chasing his second Melbourne Cup title after winning in 2010 as is 2011 winner Dunaden who will run from barrier 16.

The pair have shown they are ready to again feature in Australia’s biggest race with Dunaden winning the Caulfield Cup and Americain running home strongly for fourth.

British stayer Red Cadeaux was beaten in tight finish by Dunaden last year and will have to overcome a wide barrier 18 draw if he is to go one better this year.

Luca Cumani‘s highly-rated chance Mount Athos was one of the top chances at bookmaker.com.au prior to the barrier draw and has received a favourable barrier eight draw for his first run on Australian soil.

He is one of two Cumani-owned runners in the field with the Australian-owned My Quest For Peace chasing Melbourne Cup glory from the inside barrier.

After drawing wide when favourite in the Caulfield Cup, top Australian trainer Gai Waterhouse would have been relieved to see the number seven when the barrier for Glencadam Gold was revealed.

He is one of two Waterhouse runners striving to deliver the Sydney trainer her first Melbourne Cup with fellow import Fiorente to make his Australian debut from barrier two.

Bart Cummings is striving for yet another Melbourne Cup win and the barrier draw was kind to his Americain import Sanagas (4) but not so Precedence (20).

Other notable barriers include Irish stayer Galileo’s Choice (11), Godolphin’s Cavalryman (6), Peter Moody-trained mare Lights Of Heaven (17), Lloyd Williams’ Green Moon (5) and Cox Plate fourth placegetter Ethiopia (14).

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.

The 2011 Crown Oaks betting markets have shifted massively since markets first opened and changed completely from what they were pre-post.

Mosheen

Mosheen a big firmer for the 2011 Crown Oaks

See below for our full guide of 2011 Crown Oaks Tips featuring the horses we think will fill the placings in the feature event at Flemington Racecourse today.

Rahveel

Rahveel is a top three player in the 2011 Crown Oaks

These horses not only represent the best chances in the 2500m Group 1 Crown Oaks, they also represent fantastic value with online bookmaker Luxbet.

With the withdrawal of Atlantic Jewel earlier in the week the race has shifted from having the shortest of short priced favourites restricting betting to only serious punters, to a market that can include absolutely everyone.

It’s the same story at Luxbet when it comes to their free bet bonus offers.

Some bookie swill charge you $100 or even $200 to qualify for their free bets while at Luxbet it’s completely up to you.

Deposit a mere $25 anywhere up to $500 and it will be matched dollar for dollar.

Simply enter the code MATCHBET to qualify for the deal which is only available for a limited time at Luxbet now!

2011 Crown Oaks Tips

1st – Dowager Queen ($3.70 @ Luxbet)

She’s had no luck in her past couple of starts and deserves a turnaround in fortune here. Two starts back she was caught deep in traffic and didn’t get out in time to challenge the leader and last start the jockey dropped the whip and was forced to use his hand. She wasn’t going to beat Atlantic Jewel but she can certainly beat this field at great value.

2nd – Vittoria ($10 @ Luxbet)

She’s been missed at the moment by punters but she is amazing value that’s flown under the radar. She was back just as far as Dowager Queen last start at Caulfield and managed to get home in fourth spot. She didn’t run in the Wakeful and as a result has been somewhat forgotten but she’ll be fresh, she’ll run the trip and she’ll be there late.

3rd – Rahveel ($6.00 @ Luxbet)

Had the run of the race in the Wakeful but taking nothing away from her gallant effort to get to the line. She beat Dowager Queen fair and square and while we think that may turn around today, she’d done enough to earn her spot in the top three. Looks to be a lack of speed, that’ll help her as well.

Why not box this trifecta with Luxbet now?

Not only would it pay quite well for a pick that’s a very real chance, at Luxbet you’ll get even more.

The 2011 Crown Oaks Form Guide is listed below with complete information on the chances on every runner in the field.

Gliding is a top pick for the 2011 Crown Oaks

The Crown Oaks is the feature event of Ladies Day at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, a day where fashion is Queen and the racing for many plays second fiddle.

That being said it’s still a hell of a card and for once a year punters and regular race fans alike Oaks Day has plenty to offer.

There is a final field of 11 in the 2011 Crown Oaks and it’s  wide open affair.

It didn’t shape as that early on but red hot favourite was withdrawn form the event robbing it of a champion but opening it up to the rest of the field.

Finding a winner in the 2011 Crown Oaks could be tough if you compare it to the Victoria Derby, the equivalent race for male horses.

Manawanui was favoured all spring but he simply couldn’t handle the 2500m, a question these horses must now answer as well.

In reality you can’t tell if they will or not until they actually do, but you can take clues form their lead in runs.

If they’ve handled 2000m with ease they’re a much safer bet than a horse that perhaps came through a mile event.

Check out the details below in the 2011 Crown Oaks Form Guide and then get betting with Luxbet.

Luxbet still have their exclusive $500 free bet offer open for the next little while.

Move now and enter the code MATCHBET to have your first deposit matched dollar for dollar.

It can be as small as $25 right up to the maximum of $500, so get betting, get wining and get in the spirit this Oaks Day, get Luxbet now!

2011 Crown Oaks Form Guide

Mosheen ($4.20 @ Luxbet)

Has plenty of class but faces a huge test jumping from just 1600m in the Myer Classic to 2500m in less than a week.

Dowager Queen ($3.70 @ Luxbet)

Keeps finding a way to lose but simply has no excuses left here, looks the pick of the bunch after running on late in the Wakeful Stakes.

Gliding ($7.00 @ Luxbet))

Beat Dowager Queen two starts back but the roles were reversed in the Wakeful, still a chance though with the right run.

Rahveel ($6.00 @ Luxbet)

Surprise of the day when second to Atlantic Jewel in the Wakeful and on that form she is a huge player in this race.

Roma Giaconda ($19 @ Luxbet)

Was second to Manawanui not too long ago when he was at his peak however she was very disappointing in 8th last start.

Gioe ($26 @ Luxbet)

Sixth in the Wakeful but seemed to hold her position more than make up ground down the straight.

Vittoria ($10 @ Luxbet)

Ran on well for fourth last start over 2000m at Caulfield, the same race Dowager Queen ran second to Gliding In. Made huge ground, knockout player here.

Fallen One ($31 @ Luxbet)

Dead last in the Wakeful, can’t have her.

Flame Of Lanka ($26 @ Luxbet)

Fourth over 1600m at Moonee Valley last start so on paper she’s a big risk.

Lady Jouster ($31 @ Luxbet)

Rises up from a Bendigo maiden victory over 2200m. Big jump in class but importantly not such a big jump in distance.

Pentimento ($15 @ Luxbet)

Another that ran on well at Caulfield on October 15 but perhaps not quite as impressive as a couple of others.

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.

In addition to that you get better odds as well, why wouldn’t you want it?

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.

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’
