The Melborne Cup all in market with Sportsbet changed somewhat after racing at both Randwick and Flemington on Saturday.
The Turnbull Stakes (2000m) looked on paper as if it would be a market setter for the Melbourne Cup and that was the case post race. Winner Verry Elleegant, along with third placegetter Finche, are now at $19 after being $21 prior the race. They sit behind Surprise Baby, who was good late, but has eased out to $9.50 from $8 prior to the Turnbull.
Persan assured himself a 2020 Melbourne Cup start via winning the Bart Cummings (2500m) and with his spot secured, he’s now a $26 chance, in from $101, while Schabau and Shared Ambition are now $51 after being $34.
Metropolitan winner Mirage Dancer halved his price after the victory, now a $51 chance after being $101 prior.
