Fame Game has been at the top of Melbourne Cup betting markets since he stormed home late to finish second behind Gold Ship in the Group 1 Tenno Sho (3200m) at Kyoto in Japan on May 3 and the Heart’s Cry entire was extremely well-backed following his eye-catching sixth in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 17.

He was as short as $3.80 in 2015 Melbourne Cup betting markets after the final field was released on Saturday afternoon, but he has been a big drifter in the last 24 hours and he is now out to $5.

The clear market mover in 2015 Melbourne Cup betting markets has been Trip To Paris and there has been an avalanche of support for the Caulfield Cup runner-up in the past 24 hours.

Trip To Paris was first earmarked as a Melbourne Cup contender when he recorded an impressive victory in the Group 1 Gold Cup (4023m) at Royal Ascot on June 18, but he did not head towards the top of Melbourne Cup markets until his impressive effort in the Caulfield Cup and he is now into $7.50.

Another horse that has been well-supported in the last 24 hours is Willie Mullins-trained Max Dynamite, who has been backed from $14 into $11 this morning.

Max Dynamite was purchased by the Mullins stable to be a hurdler after starting his racing career in France, but he showed that he still had ability over the flat when he finished second behind Quest For More in the Northumberland Plate (3236m) at Newcastle on June 27 before he recorded a dominant four and a half lengths win in the Group 2 Lonsdale Cup (3299m) at York on August 21.

One of the big drifters in 2015 Melbourne Cup betting markets has been Lindsay Park-trained Criterion, who has been $12 out to $18 since the barrier draw was conducted on Saturday afternoon.

Criterion has not had a stint in the spelling paddock for about 18 months, but he is arguably the class horse in the Melbourne Cup field following his win in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Caulfield Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield on October 10 and the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 24.

There has been a sprinkling of support in the 2015 Melbourne Cup betting market with Ladbrokes for The Offer ($51 into $31), Quest For More ($101 into $81) and Sertorius ($201 into $101), while Criterion ($14 out to $20), Big Orange ($51 out to $61), Who Shot Thebarman ($17 out to $21), Grand Marshal ($34 out to $51), The United States ($19 out to $20), Excess Knowledge ($21 out to $31) and Gust Of Wind ($26 out to $31) have all been on the drift.
