Surprise Baby is the new outright favourite for the Melbourne Cup

The Paul Preusker trained Surprise Baby has shortened into outright favouritism for the Melbourne Cup following his run in the G2 Feehan Stakes at Moonee Valley.

Surprise Baby jumped as the well backed favourite in the Feehan Stakes but lost no admirer running second in the race behind Humidor after sitting wide throughout.

The run had a lot of merit to it seeings the talented stayer was having his first start since last years Melbourne Cup where he ran an eye catching fifth beaten less than a length.

Surprise Baby was a $10 chance in the 2020 Melbourne Cup prior to his run in the Feehan Stakes with bookmaker Sportsbet shortening his quote into outright favouritism at $8.50 ahead of boom stayer Russian Camelot who now sits on the second line of Melbourne Cup betting at $10.

Saturday’s racing saw a handful of Cups hopes return with the Chris Waller trained Finche the most notable of those who ran third in the Group Two Chelmsford Stakes at Randwick which saw his odds firm into $21 from $26 prior to the race.

Kinane was the notable drifter in the market and is now out to triple figures after he ran near the rear of the field in a BM94 at Randwick where he jumped as favourite.
