Cummings’ Melbourne Cup Long-Shot Landlocked Wins at Canterbury

The Anthony Cummings-trained Landlocked has improved his chances of a berth in the 2010 Melbourne Cup after winning first-up at Canterbury yesterday.

Racing Victoria Limited has already stopped horses from England and Macau from arriving this week after the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) rejected signing off on the Werribee quarantine manual.

Currently the top international Melbourne Cup contenders in the ante-post betting markets are Japanese stayer Meiner Kitz and Britain’s Sans Frontieres paying $17 at
