This week the first set of nominations and weights were announced for the 2018 Melbourne Cup to be held on November 6th (aka the first Tuesday of November). A total of 183 horses have been nominated including 50 "internationals" from England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Germany & Japan.
As ever the bookmakers have been quick to put up a "all in" market the official Aus Tab is as follows:
Kings Will Dream (Darren Weir) $10
Magic Circle (Ian Williams) $13
Torcedor (Andreas Wohler) $13
Cross Counter (Charlie Appleby) $15
Hamada (Charlie Appleby) $17
Withhold (Roger Charlton) $17
All Others $26+
Fascinating the hold the internationals have isn't it?!
