THREE-QUARTER SISTER OF MAKYBE DIVA BACKED TO WIN 2014 MELBOURNE CUP!

The three-quarter little sister to three-time Melbourne Cup winning mare Makybe Diva has attracted a big bet at Sportingbet.com.au to win next Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup.

The Sportingbet punter stands to collect $402,000 if five-year-old mare La Amistad wins the Cup, after putting $6,000 on Maykbe Diva’s relation at odds of $67.

The same punter has had $20,000 on La Amistad to win tomorrow’s Lexus Stakes at Flemington, a race she needs to win in order to guarantee her spot in the Melbourne Cup field.

“La Amistad’s recent form suggests she’s a long shot for the Cup and she still has to make the field, but this punter is obviously very confident,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.

Japanese horse Admire Rakti maintains $5 favouritism at Sportingbet for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup, ahead of Lucia Valentina ($7), Protectionist ($7) and Fawkner ($9).

One punter placed $5,000 on Lucia Valentina on Friday morning.

“The big punters usually don’t come out to play until after the barrier draw on Saturday night, but a few of them have already opened their wallets.”
