Melbourne Cup Odds: The Favourites

November 3rd, 2014 by Pom de Turf

Not long now until jump-off in the 2014 edition of The Race That Stops A Nation, and Australia’s biggest day of Racing is only hours away. There’s still a little bit of time left for things to change in the Racing odds for the big race, but it would have to be something very dramatic indeed for the favourites to change all that much. So, with that in mind, he’s a little look at the horses with the shortest odds beside their names on Sportsbet right now – which is incidentally where you can find all the markets you’ll need for the Melbourne Cup!

Melbourne Cup Odds: The Barrier Draw

November 3rd, 2014 by Pom de Turf

We’ve getting excited. The barrier draw for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup is in, and it’s just another little hurdle between us and jump-off – one of those little milestones that gets us just a bit more excited as we see each of them pass. We’ve got all the Racing odds for the big race on Tuesday, and from the looks of them, the barrier draw hasn’t seen Admire Rakti shift from his position as the favourite, and young gun Signoff is still getting his fair share and more of attention from punters.

The favourite will Read the rest of this entry »

Melbourne Cup Odds: Local Boys Look Like Outsiders

November 3rd, 2014 by Pom de Turf

The trophies for two of the three biggest races in the 2014 Melbourne Spring have already fallen into the hands of overseas raiders, and if you look at the Racing odds for the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, you can see that there’s a real possibility that The Race That Stops A Nation could go the same way.

It’s Caulfield Cup winner and 2014 Melbourne Spring sensation Admire Rakti who’s the favourite just at the moment for the Melbourne Cup, and he’s just the sort of big strong stayer who could win it. There has been Read the rest of this entry »

Melbourne Cup Odds: Signoff Makes The Cut

November 3rd, 2014 by Pom de Turf

Signoff’s connections knew the task ahead of him going into Saturday’s Lexus Stakes, and they knew the rewards that were potentially on offer if he could do the job for them and come home as a winner in the Group 3 event. Check in on those Racing odds for the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday and you can see that not only did the first part go according to plan, with Signoff grabbing a Lexus Stakes win, but that he’s sitting in a pretty good spot for the Melbourne Cup, and he’s got Read the rest of this entry »

Melbourne Cup Odds: The Weather

November 2nd, 2014 by Pom de Turf

Bad news for the mudlarks in the 2014 Melbourne Cup. And if you’ve been looking at those Racing odds and have backed a horse that favours a softer track it might be bad news for you, too: the weather looks to be set fair for the weekend, and crucially for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup. A hard track underfoot will certainly favour some horse over others, and now it’s just a matter of working out which those ones are, and whether they represent value…

Melbourne Cup Odds: Rating Admire Rakti

November 2nd, 2014 by Pom de Turf

He might be causing a bit of a stir over in Australia in the 2014 Melbourne Spring, and a look at the Racing odds for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup will tell you that he’s the clear favourite to add to his Caulfield Cup victory before he heads home to Japan, but you might be surprised to learn that Admire Rakti isn’t what you’d call a superstar on his home turf.

In fact, he’s Read the rest of this entry »

Melbourne Cup Odds: Signoff On Shortening Odds

November 1st, 2014 by Pom de Turf

He’s no guarantee to make the final field just at the moment, but that hasn’t stopped the odds for Signoff in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup shortening and shortening over the course of the last week. A glance at the Racing odds as the stand at the moment will tell you that he’s at odds of $15.00 just at the moment, and he’s getting plenty of backing at that price, too.

Entry for signoff into the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday will depend on a win in the Lexus Stakes today, but he is the overwhelming favourite to come home in that one, and Read the rest of this entry »

Harness Racing Odds: McCarthys Enjoy More QPC Success

November 1st, 2014 by Pom de Turf

It’s a well-documented and long-lasting love affair that the McCarthy stables have with Harness Racing in Queensland, and with the Queensland Pacing Cup in particular. Looking at the Racing odds before the race at the weekend, it looked like there would be a strong challenge in 2014 to their historical dominance of the race, and so it proved, but there was more than enough talent on show in McCarthy colours to make the night a roaring success for them – one that showcased an exceptional talent at the same time that it signalled a rising talent for the future.

The strongest challenge came from local hero Avonnova, who was Read the rest of this entry »

Melbourne Cup Odds: The Prince Is Paid Up

November 1st, 2014 by Pom de Turf

After what really was an eye-catching run in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup last weekend (and a run that caught the eye of Racing Victoria’s Chief handicapper Greg Carpenter), connections of Prince of Penzance have stumped up the cost of a Melbourne Cup entry for their prospect.

But before you can take him into consideration in the Racing odds ahead of Tuesday’s big race, he would have to find a way to Read the rest of this entry »
