Punters like Bart for lucky 13th Cup


TAB punters are banking on BART CUMMINGS winning his 13th Melbourne Cup this afternoon .. with last year’s winner VIEWED and stablemate ROMAN EMPEROR in demand.

bart_cummings_narrowweb__300x451,0 VIEWED is the $5.10 favourite but ROMAN EMPEROR isn’t far behind him at $6.70.
The stable’s third string ALLEZ WONDER is at $16.80.
However corporate bookmakers are preparing for a fairytale win by South Australian stayer ALCOPOP .. who in some markets has replaced VIEWED as the Cup favourite.
While ALCOPOP is at $6.60 on the TAB .. Centrebet has him at the head of the Cup betting at $5 after firming from $6 while VIEWED has drifted from $4.85 to $5.25.
