Melbourne Cup 2020 Odds - Il Paradiso installed as next year's favourite

Il Paradiso has been installed as the 21.00 favourite for the 2020 Melbourne Cup.

He was promoted to third position when launching for the line late, but copping some interference from Master of Reality.

There's no saying if he would have won, but he certainly made a strong case late in the 3200m race.

Caulfield Cup winner Mer De Glace and Surprise Baby are well-found in the betting at 26.00. Surprise Baby flashed home late in 2019 and will be better-prepared come 2020.

The 2018 Cup winner Cross Counter is at the 51 quote, but is unlikely to make the trip for a third consecutive year.

Although Vow And Declare won, he's not on the first line of betting.
