SMARTIES STAND TO GET THE CHOCOLATES IN THE CUP

Smart punters wagered early and received massive “overs” about their horses in tomorrow’s Melbourne Cup.

· Sportsbet punters took odds of $41 for Hartnell, who is now $5.00 Cup favourite.

· Jameka has firmed from $61 into $8.50 for the great race.

· The online bookmaker will pay-out $301,000 from a single $100 wager if Almandin ($14) wins.

The list is lengthy, but Hartnell and Jameka dominate the betting with plenty of money coming for Oceanographer ($7.50) since he won the Lexus Stakes on Saturday.
Another European invader, Bondi Beach, opened at huge odds of $41 and is now into $9.00. Joy will abound for some punters if Heartbreak City ($16) can salute, another horse with several nice wagers taken at his early price of $41.
“It’s the Melbourne Cup so just about everything in the race has admirers. However, the smart punters have done well to get top odds about the main chances and to find Almandin at $301 was a stroke of genius,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
