The money suggests Melbourne Cup favourite Yucatan can overcome his wide barrier draw

Yucatan was the big loser when it came to the barrier draw for the Melbourne Cup (3200m) but remains the solid favourite with Sportsbet.com.au for the race that stops a nation.

The Aidan O’Brien trained stayer has been top pick in betting for the race since a stunning win in the Herbert Power, and that form was ticked on Derby Day via A Prince Of Arran ($15-$17). Yucatan drew 23/24 and did ease to $4.80 from $4.20 but is now back into $4.60.

He holds the call over two more internationals at $9.50, Magic Circle and Cross Counter, with both gallopers being reported to have settled into Werribee rather nicely.

There has been plenty of specking for runners, as you’d expect being the Melbourne Cup. They include the Caulfield Cup winner Best Solution ($15-$11-$13), Chestnut Coat ($41-$34), Who Shot Thebarman ($51-$61-$46), Marmelo ($17-$15) and Ventura Storm ($31-$26).
