Melbourne Cup Horses for Legendary Trainer Bart Cummings

While ill health has recently plagued the lead-up to the Melbourne Cup Carnival for legendary trainer Bart Cummings, his contingent for the 2010 Melbourne Cup next Tuesday is stronger than ever.

Affectionately known as the Cups King thanks to his commanding record in the world’s richest handicap having won a record 12 Melbourne Cups over the years, Cummings is vying for the baker’s dozen in the 150th Emirates Melbourne Cup on November 2.

Three horses from Cummings’ stables are assured of a spot in the 24-horse Melbourne Cup field with So You Think, Dariana and Faint Perfume all ready to line up for the gruelling 3200m feature.

A fourth runner could be added to Cummings’ Cup assault tomorrow as his improving stayer Precedence will attempt to gain a Melbourne Cup ballot exemption with a win in the Group 3 The Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Victoria Derby Day.

Next in the Melbourne Cup markets is Faint Perfume sitting at $41, who will also contest this Saturday’s Mackinnon Stakes, while his other star mare Dariana is at a very generous quote of $61 through Luxbet.

Despite not having qualified, JRA Cup and Moonee Valley Cup winner Precedence is at $18.
