It is all one way traffic when it comes to the Bart Cummings (2500m) and the market this Saturday at Flemington.

The Melbourne Cup winner Almandin, who was visually breathtaking in his JRA Trophy win at the track/distance last time out, is all the rage with the betting agency to take out the feature en route to either the Caulfield Cup or Melbourne Cup. He is the even money pop after being crunched in from $2.15.

On paper, his key and perhaps only threat is Harlem, but he has been a bit friendless in betting, out to $4 from $3.80. The other runners at single figures are Amelie’s Star ($7.50-$8) and Crocodile Rock ($8.50-$9-$9.50-$9).

Mornington Cup winner Tally has had a couple of $21-$23 flucs en route to the Caulfield Cup.
