After winning the Ebor Handicap at York overnight, Mustajeer is now $15 equal favourite at TAB for the Caulfield Cup and $17 for the Melbourne Cup.

Mustajeer was $26 for the Caulfield Cup before the Ebor Handicap and is now one of seven horses sharing TAB favouritism at $15 for the $5 million feature to be run on October 19.

Mustajeer was $51 for the Melbourne Cup prior to the Ebor Handicap win and the Australian Bloodstock-owned galloper is now $17 at with only Cross Counter and Marmelo (both $15) ahead in the betting to win the $8 million race that stops a nation on November 5.

Kris Lees will take over the training of Mustajeer once the gelding is transferred from the stable of Ger Lyons.

Nominations for the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup close at midday AEST on Thursday.
