Can Sans Fronteires Win the 2010 Melbourne Cup for Great Britain?

Following the release of the 2010 Melbourne Cup second declarations yesterday, 78 horses remain on track for a run in the $6 million handicap including 14 international horses lead by Great Britain’s Sans Frontieres.

Five-year-old Sans Frontieres is an Irish bred and British trained stayer that is also the only horse to secure a ballot exemption for the 150th Melbourne Cup, which will run as Race 7 at Flemington on Tuesday November 2, for its impressive win in the Group 1 Irish St Leger (2800m) at the start of the month.

Sans Frontieres, a son of boom sire Galileo, may have secured his spot in the 24-horse Melbourne Cup field but what are his chances of winning the iconic ‘two mile’ race that stops the nation?

With just under a month before the 2010 Melbourne Cup takes place the team here at Races.com.au will look at the form of the top contenders and give you a heads up on which horse will become the Melbourne Cup winner!

The favourite of the overseas raiders in the Melbourne Cup betting, Sans Frontieres is currently paying $15 at Sportsbet.

Horse Facts – Sans Frontieres

  • Jockey: A jockey is yet to be confirmed for Sans Frontieres for his Australian runs
  • Trainer: Jeremy Noseda
  • Owner: Sir Robert Ogden
  • Age: 5YO
  • Gender: Entire
  • Breeding: by Galileo (IRE) from Llia (GB)

  • Current Melbourne Cup Odds: $15 Ladbrokes.com.au

Sans Frontieres has had a brilliant season to date racing overseas and is expected to arrive in Melbourne ready to prepare for his assault on the Melbourne Cup this weekend along with fellow international Cup hopefuls Bauer and Illustrious Blue.

Over the past two months, Sans Frontieres has won three successive races enjoying success in the Princess of Wales Stakes, Geoffrey Freer Stakes and then the Irish St Leger.

Allocated 57kg to carry in the Melbourne Cup, Sans Frontieres should easily be able to account for this weight having carried a hefty 62kg to victory in the St Leger.

A proven stayer having won over 2800m in the Irish St Leger, Sans Frontieres is the ideal Melbourne Cup candidate with only the question of how he will run on the Australian turf to be answered.

If successful in the 2010 Melbourne Cup with Sans Frontieres, Jeremy Noseda will become only the second European trainer in history to win the Melbourne Cup joining Dermot K Weld.
