Punters believe that the Lexus Melbourne Cup will be heading overseas this year.

 

International raiders dominate the market and even race favourite Yucatan, which is owned by Australian interests, has only had the one start on our shores after arriving from the UK.

 

The most popular runner in terms of money taken is Magic Circle, which accounts for 12 per cent of the market. The seven-year-old is second pick in the market behind Yucatan, who is the second most popular horse with just over 10 per cent riding on him.

 

Marmelo (nine per cent), the 2017 Cup favourite, is third pick with the punters while Youngstar (eight per cent) is the next best tried and is easily the best of the local hopes. Caulfield Cup winner Best Solution (seven per cent) and Avilius (six per cent) head the others.

 

Magic Circle is also one of the most notable farmers for the Cup since Saturday’s barrier draw, going from $9-$7.50 at one stage. Yucatan continues to drift and is now $4.50 out to as much as $6.50 across some corporates.
