Leading online bookmaker Ladbrokes has revealed that Fame Game is their worst result in 2015 Melbourne Cup betting markets, but it has been Trip To Paris that has been the best-backed runner in the lead-up to ‘the race that stops a nation’ at Flemington this afternoon.

Fame Game has been heavily supported in Melbourne Cup betting markets since connections confirmed that he would make the trip to Australia and he got as short as $3.80, but he has been on the drift this morning and is now out to $4.80.

Ladbrokes spokesperson Paul Di Cioccio confirmed that Fame Game remained their worst result in the 2015 Melbourne Cup due to the number of multi and doubles that he has been included in, but he revealed that Trip To Paris was the company’s worst result in their regular Melbourne Cup book.

“Fame Game is clearly the worst in the book, however the damage is all in the multi’s, which have been building up for weeks,” Di Cioccio said.

“As of yesterday afternoon Fame Game was around a 1.25 million bad result, even though he has been $4.20 out to $4.80 since yesterday morning

“Trip To Paris has been the big mover, $9 into $7, and the money just keeps coming.

“It’s actually the worst clearly in the normal race book.”

Trip To Paris has not been the only mover in 2015 Melbourne Cup betting markets and Di Ciocci confirmed that there had been plenty of support for Preferment ($11 into $9), Max Dynamite ($13 into $11) and even extreme outsider Sertorius ($201 into $101) after they all received strong backing at the Call Of The Card at Crown Casino in Melbourne yesterday afternoon.

“Preferment was another big mover on the back of heavy support at yesterday’s Call of The Card in Melbourne,” Di Ciocci said.

“Max Dynamite for champion jockey Frankie Dettori has jumps form, but there has been support after a dominant win overseas last start and he brings plenty of interest.

“Sertorius has been well supported on the back of Tom Waterhouse‘s wager to win 5 million at yesterday’s Call of The Card.

“It also is the worst result clearly in our Top 10 market taking out 40k.”

Red Cadeaux has drifted out to 2015 Melbourne Cup odds of $31 after opening at a quote of $26 when the 2015 Melbourne Cup field was released on Saturday afternoon and he is currently a winning result for Ladbrokes, but Di Cioccio does not believe that will last and he expects casual punters to come for Red Cadeaux in a big way before the 2015 Melbourne Cup this afternoon.

“Red Cadeaux has remained steady in the market, but all the once a year punters have good memories and he should end up a loss considering his outstanding record in Cup,” Di Ciocci said.

Fame Game is currently available at 2015 Melbourne Cup odds of $4.80 with Ladbrokes and he remains favourite from Trip To Paris ($7.50), Preferment ($9), Mac Dynamite ($11) and Criterion ($15).
