So You Think firming favourite for Cup

So You Think remains the dominant favourite for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup but punters have rallied to Maluckyday at the Call of the Card in Melbourne.

Maluckyday burst into calculations when he forced his way into the field by winning the Lexus Stakes and on Monday he was backed to win $800,000, with weight of money firming him from $10 to $9 and second favourite behind So You Think at $3.40.

Last year’s winner and former favourite Shocking is out to $10 with Caulfield Cup winner Descarado at $13.

Elsewhere, bookmakers have So You Think as short as $3 to give trainer Bart Cummings his 13th Melbourne Cup.
