Punters are loading up on Japanese stayer Fame Game ($6-$5) to win the Melbourne Cup, after his eye-catching audition in the Caulfield Cup today.
The five-year-old hit the line strongly in the time-honoured 2,400m handicap and was an immediate firmer with UBET for the race that stops a nation on November 3.
“There was a rush of cash for him right away,” said UBET Media Manager Nick Curry.
“And in the hour or so since, there’s been 10 times more investment in him to get up on the first Tuesday in November than any other horse in the market.”
Caulfield Cup winner Mongolian Kahn ($35-$8.50) and runner-up Trip To Paris ($15-$8.50) were also a big Melbourne Cup movers, with plenty of UBET customers content to take them at their freshly trimmed quotes.
