Punters continue to roll the dice with Melbourne Cup favourite Fame Game, backing the stallion as if unbeatable.
Seven days ago Fame Game was $4.80 favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The Japanese invader is now into $4.20 and will continue to shorten if the trend continues.
In the past week Fame Game has received nine times the support than Preferment ($11), who is the next best supported runner.
Who Shot The Barman ($13) and Kiwi Mongolian Khan ($11) are the next most popular with punters.
“We’re a week out from the Cup and it appears the bulk of punters have made up their mind. The money just keeps rolling in for Fame Game, who in total holds seven times more money than Preferment,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
