VRC Oaks and Moonee Valley Cup winner Miami Bound could be the bet for omen punters in this year's Lexus Melbourne Cup.

The daughter of Reliable Man will carry saddlecloth No 17 and jump from barrier 17 as well in what shapes as an omen tip for Cup Day punters.

Two years ago her trainer Danny O'Brien won the the great race with Vow And Declare and the five-year-old mare has proven she can run the distance with a fast-finishing third in this year's Sydney Cup. 

Miami Bound has also saved some of her best racing for Flemington with also includes victory in the 2019 Wakeful Stakes.

In-form jockey Patrick Moloney has been booked for the ride, with the mare to carry 52kg on the first Tuesday in November.
