Melbourne Cup Betting Odds 2020

The Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) will be run at Flemington on Tuesday, November 3. Here are the latest Melbourne Cup betting odds.

Six-year-old gelding Surprise Baby will be one of the leading contenders for the 2020 Melbourne Cup. Trained by Paul Preusker, Surprise Baby finished fifth in the Cup in 2019 when making up a lot of ground to finish a length away from Vow And Declare. Surprise Baby ran second in the Group 2 Feehan Stakes (1600m) which is a good sign for connections considering the gelding ran fourth in the race last year before winning the Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m).

Trainer Danny O’Brien will chase back-to-back Melbourne Cups. Four-year-old entire Russian Camelot captured the Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m) in May and was second in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m). All signs look positive for Russian Camelot heading towards the Cup. Vow And Declare will also likely defend his crown in ‘the race that stops a nation’ after running ninth in the Makybe Diva.

Tiger Moth represents leading trainer Aidan O’Brien and it would be a remarkable story if the four-year-old entire were to claim the Melbourne Cup. He has raced just four times in his career for two wins. He was beaten a head by Santiago in the Group 1 Irish Derby (2414m) and both horses will be very serious Cups horses if they enter the great race.

Other key hopefuls at this stage are Anthony Van Dyck, Ashrun, Nickajack Cave, Verry Elleegant, Finche and Master Of Reality.
