Melbourne Cup Jockeys Compete For Top Spot

Damien Oliver will be the man to beat in tomorrow’s Melbourne Cup and as the jockey prepares to ride English import Warringah to victory, his racing CV does little to hinder his chances of winning.

Ollie is the most experienced rider in Tuesday’s event with 19 Melbourne Cup races to his name.

He won the event twice, first aboard Lee Freedman’s Doriemus in 1995 and again in 2002 with Media Puzzle.

When he rode Pop Rock in 2006, he finished a solid second behind Delta Blues and the following year he just missed out on a win with Purple Moon.

However, Oliver won’t have an easy race at Flemington tomorrow with flamboyant jockey Glen Boss hoping to take the title with Melbourne Cup first timer Changingoftheguard.

Of all the jockey’s entered in tomorrow’s race, Boss has the best success rate at the Melbourne Cup after his triple victory with Makybe Diva from 2003 to 2005.

With ten rides in the Melbourne Cup so far, Boss will be able to use his experience to help young Changingoftheguard reach his potential in tomorrow’s race.

Luke Nolen had a particularly successful weekend with two wins on Saturday’s Derby Day.

His first victory came with Headway in the Coolmore Stud Stakes and then followed with an epic three length win aboard Typhoon Tracy in the Myer Classic.

Nolen will be riding Colin Little’s Ista Kareem in tomorrow’s event and will hopefully keep up the winning streak.

Corey Brown was Saturday’s golden boy aboard Monaco Consul after winning the AAMI Victoria Derby and Shocking in the Lexus Stakes.

Last year Brown was narrowly defeated by Viewed when he rode international contender Bauer.

This year he will be riding Shocking and the pair have already proven their abilities to win at Flemington so let’s just hope they can pull it off again in tomorrow’s race.

Making a comeback to Flemington is controversial jockey Chris Munce who was jailed in Hong Kong for horse tipping.

Riding New Zealand Hopeful Daffodil, Munce has already won the Melbourne Cup however it will be interesting to see whether his time away from the track will affect his performance tomorrow.
