Magic Circle has been crunched into equal favouritism for the Melbourne Cup

The heavy rain in Melbourne has seen the odds from Magic Circle firm from $8.00 into equal favouritism at $7.00.

Punters with Sportsbet have loaded onto the English stayer with the change in track conditions, he’s attracted more money and individual bets than the other favourite Yucatan ($7.00).

Owner Marwan Koukash has vowed to strip down to his g-string should the gelding salute and the bookie rates the eccentric billionaire a $3.00 chance to follow through with it.

“Plenty of punters have been loading up on Magic Circle to win after the heavens opened, if he does salute we’re tipping it’ll be a chilly celebration for Koukash,” said’s Ella Zampatti.
