We have a new favourite for the 2019 Melbourne Cup after a horse was heavily backed at the Call Of The Card luncheon at Crown today.
Punters at the Call Of The Card loaded up on Finche to win the 2019 Melbourne Cup which has seen the Chris Waller trained galloper shorten from $10 into $8.00 favourite for Tuesday’s race.
Following the heavy support for Finche in Melbourne Cup betting the Japanese raider Mer De Glace who held favouritism is now out to $8.50.
The Call Of The Card is where Australia’s biggest punters and bookies who are keen to take on the Melbourne Cup horses back and lay each of the horses with the event usually providing some of the biggest bets taken on the race.
The punters at the Call Of The Card think that Finche will start as the clear favourite in the market at jump time with more money set to continue to come for the imported galloper who is now with Chris Waller.
Another horse at longer odds the big bettors were keen to back at today’s Call Of The Card is the lightly raced Il Paradiso who shortened from $15 into $14 follow some bets including one to win over $1,000,000.
