Online bookmaker swiftbet have introduced an eye-catching promotional offer ahead of the Melbourne Cup at Flemington tomorrow.
Punters can take advantage of the special odds of $20.00 for either Gold Trip or stablemate and fellow Australian Bloodstock raced Ashrun to take out the 2023 Melbourne Cup.
This promotion offers a a massive price increase on Gold Trip who is one of the favourites in this years Melbourne Cup after taking out the race emphatically last year.
Gold Trip sits on the second line of betting for the Melbourne Cup at $6.00 alongside Without A Fight who has been well backed, whilst Ashrun is at $34 in the all-in market which is headed by International stayer Vauban who is $4.00 in Melbourne Cup markets and on the drift after being well backed last week.
The bookmaker looks to be siding with jockey Mark Zahra who decided to ride Without A Fight in the race over Gold Trip who he piloted to win the Cup last year and was aboard in the Turnbull Stakes and the Cox Plate last weekend.
The catch? A maximum stake of $10 is in place for this offer and one bet per household, but with the increased odds it represents a good offer if you like Gold Trip in this years edition of the ‘Race That Stops A Nation’.
