The Melbourne Cup odds suggest that the bookmakers don't cut the winners of the Geelong Cup too short. When Media Puzzle won both races in 2002 for European raider Dermot Weld he was by far and away the shortest price contender coming through this trial.

Keep an eye out on this years race on the 19th October as the winner could have a decent price in the antepost betting market.
