Sportsbet.com.au rates Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance an outsider to win at his return to racing on Saturday.
The online bookmaker has posted Prince Of Penzance at $11 for the Morphettville Group 3.
Jockey Michelle Payne, who won the Cup at odds of $101, will be reunited with the six-year-old. The gelding is $41 to win this year’s Cup.
Handy sprinter-miler Alpine Eagle is the $3.30 favourite, ahead of Atlantis Dream ($4.60) and Tonopah ($4.80).
“The 1600m will probably be too short for Prince Of Penzance, but he should be running on strongly. He’s an outsider but you can’t write him off because he’s defied the odds before,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
