Godolphin Trio Arrive for 2010 Melbourne Cup Campaign

Three horses from the world’s biggest horse racing venture Godolphin arrived in Victoria today ready to embark on a campaign targeting the 2010 Melbourne Cup at Flemington on Tuesday November 2.

Campanologist, Eastern Aria and Holberg have all entered quarantine at the Werribee horse centre in preparation for their Australian race debuts.

Of the trio, dual Group 1 winner Campanologist is the highest rated entry on the 150th Emirates Melbourne Cup order of entry sitting fourth on the ballot and weighted at 56kg.

Six-year-old Campanologist comes to Australia on the back of some impressive form overseas, most recently finishing third to Dangerous Midge in the Arc Trial (2200m) at Newbury.

Despite being assured a spot in the 24-horse Melbourne Cup Field, Campanologist is well down the odds paying $81 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Campanologist will likely be ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy, currently recovering from a fractured vertebrae, in the Melbourne Cup.

Five-year-old mare Eastern Aria, currently 34th on the Melbourne Cup order of entry, is also at long odds in the Melbourne Cup betting at $51.

The Mark Johnston-trained Eastern Aria received a 1kg penalty for her Park Hill Stakes victory last month, still lightly weighted at 51.5kg for the Melbourne Cup.

A jockey is yet to be confirmed for Eastern Aria’s Melbourne Cup start, but Craig Williams is being considered.

It is Holberg who is at the shortest odds of the trio, paying $26 to win the Melbourne Cup equal with the likes of 2008 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer, Zipping, C’est La Guerre and Drunken Sailor.

Five-year-old Holberg is 32nd on the elimination order for the Melbourne Cup, allocated 53.5kg.

In a surprise statement, Godolphin announced that Holberg would be ridden by Italian jockey Frankie Dettori when he runs in the $6 million Melbourne Cup.

The last of the international contenders for the 2010 Melbourne Cup, Dermot Weld’s Profound Beauty, is due to arrive in Australia later this afternoon.

Profound Beauty, who ran fifth to Viewed in the 2008 Melbourne Cup, is the shortest priced overseas raider in the Cup betting paying $17 at Sportsbet.

Currently So You Think is the hot favourite at $5 following the Bart Cummings-trained four-year-olds’ impressive win in the Yalumba on Saturday.
