Overnight betting has seen the 2013 Melbourne Cup odds virtually unchanged with the Gai Waterhouse trained Fiorente still on top of the market order for the Group 1 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington today.

Waterhouse is looking to win her first Melbourne Cup with Fiorente who has remained the $7 favourite while second pick Mount Athos has had little support and has eased to $10.

Ladbrokes.com.au Bookmaker Operations Director Jason Scott said that there has been continued  support for Fiorente which will be their worst result if the imported stayer wins while Mount Athos has attracted little interest and will be a winner for the book if he salutes.

“Fiorente is going to be our worst result. The rank and file have come for it,” Scott said.

“We also took a decent bet for Fiorente overnight, $7,250 at $7.”

“Mount Athos is absolutely friendless and surprisingly is a winner for us “

Scott said that there had been overnight support for several runners including Godolphin’s Royal Empire, French mare Verema and John Singleton’s mare Dear Demi.

Royal Empire to be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy was claimed for $10,000 at $21 and is now at $20 while one punter had $5000 on His Highness The Aga Khan’s mare Verema at $15 with her price remaining at that quote.

Dear Demi also had some interest with one bet of $1500 at $21 followed up by another of $2500 at $19 with her price remaining at that mark.

Caulfield Cup winner Fawkner also continues to have support and is a $16 chance after $$17 was bet at the Call of the Card yesterday while the Peter Moody trained Ibicenco, who came in for some solid support with a series of bets to shorten his price from $101 to $61, has eased again to $67.

Singleton said that Dear Demi is his best chance of winning the Melbourne Cup and has outlaid a series of bets to $6 million if his Crown Oaks can get the major prize.

And along with the first prizemoney cheque of $3.6 million, Singleton will collect almost $10 million the luck goes his way.

“Dear Demi is the best chance I’ve had in the Melbourne Cup,” Singleton told The Daily Telegraph.

“She had not luck and ran a great race in the Caulfield Cup, she had no luck again in the Mackinnon Stakes and still ran second, so hopefully we get the luck she needs this time.

“Veloso won the (1983) Mackinnon and was favourite for the Cup but drew wide and ran fifth. Zagalia ran fifth in the (2003) Cup and that is the closest I’ve been to winning it.

“Dear Demi is right in the race against those horses who we know their form – it is the overseas horses which I can’t line up.”

    I’d be very surprised if he got up but who knows, maybe it’s time Gai claimed her first!

  12. Al Rogers

    Yeah a good run last year but too many others with class and distance honours in the race this year. Voleuse de Coeurs, Brown Panther and Simenon to name just a few.

    Fiorente – simple as that !

    Happy to leave him out at his current price but obviously deserves respect.

  15. HRacer

    I still don’t think Fiorente has got it… Sea Moon will take this melbourne cup.
