She may not have won the Mackinnon Stakes today, but Dear Demi has been a big mover for the Melbourne Cup, in from $34 to $17 with online bookmaker Sportsbet Australia.
Ruscello has also firmed significantly, in from $201 to $41 after winning the Lexus Stakes, while Jet Away’s disappointing run has seen him drift out from $21 to $34 for the Cup.
“Those who got on Ruscello early will be happy, while Dear Demi has moved from an outsider to a genuine threat at $17,” said Sportsbet’s Shaun Anderson.
Fiorente and Mount Athos remain the joint Cup favourites at $7.50 each.
