Sans Frontieres Confirmed for 2010 Melbourne Cup Field

British trainer Jeremy Noseda has confirmed his spring star Sans Frontieres will target the 2010 Melbourne Cup on Tuesday November 2 at Flemington.

Galileo five-year-old Sans Frontieres is currently the only horse that has earned a Melbourne Cup ballot exemption following its win in the Irish St Leger at Curragh earlier in the month.

Despite Sans Frontieres’ brilliant form this season, a 2kg penalty handed down by the VRC’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter for the Irish St Leger victory had Noseda reconsidering a trip Down Under for the $6 million handicap feature.

However Noseda stated yesterday that Sans Frontieres was an ideal Melbourne Cup contender and entered him in quarantine that afternoon after owner Sir Robert Ogden gave the go ahead to target the iconic race.

“We believe he is an ideal candidate for the race and we are looking forward to the challenge ahead,” Noseda said on his website.

Sans Frontieres is currently the equal third favourite in the Melbourne Cup Betting markets open at Sportsbet, paying $13 to win.

The top fancies are reigning champion Shocking ($9) followed by Bart Cummings top duo of Dariana ($10) and So You Think ($13).

There is still a large number of classy international horses vying for a spot in the 150th Melbourne Cup field including the Godolphin trio of Campanologist, Holberg and Eastern Aria, Goodwood Cup winner Illustrious Blue, and the Luca Cumani-trained Drunken Sailor, Manighar and 2008 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer.
