Yucatan is an easing favourite for Tuesday's Melbourne Cup

After Nick Williams drew barrier 23 last night, Yucatan has drifted as favourite with TAB from $4.50 to $5 for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup at Flemington.

Since the barrier draw took place, the most popular runner has been Magic Circle, who shares the second line of betting with Cross Counter at $9.

”Aside from the support for Magic Circle, the biggest firmer following the barrier draw has been Cross Counter, who has shortened from $11 to $9,” TAB’s Trent Langskaill said.

The third and fourth best backed horses after the barrier draw (Yucatan has been the second most popular) have been Youngstar ($16) and Best Solution ($13).

“Before the barriers were determined, one punter placed $5,000 at $17 on Youngstar yesterday, while another customer had $5,000 at $15 on Best Solution, who won the Caulfield Cup at his last start,” Langskaill said.
