Dynamite To Explode Down Under

The Melbourne Cup takes place in the early hours of Tuesday morning and we can report that the Willie Mullins trained Max Dynamite is all the rage to win the race.

Currently Fame Game heads the betting at 3/1 with Trip To Paris next in the betting at 7/1 alongside the aforementioned Max Dynamite.

He is by far the biggest loser in the antepost book having been supported down to 7/1 from 16/1 over the past month.

Willie Mullins has yet to add the Melbourne Cup to his training CV but judging by the support for the five year old son of Great Journey, history might well be created in Flemington come 4:05am on Tuesday morning.

Aidan O’Brien saddles two runners with both Bondi Beach and Kingfisher priced at 16/1. Nine year old Red Cadeaux has finished second in the race on three occasions and is priced at 25/1 to finally break his Melbourne Cup duck.
