Last year’s Stradbroke Handicap winner Impending...
Red Ruler has been trained hard in the past few months, but can he get a Melbourne Cup win? We’ll start with the points in his favour.
He is a thoroughbred, and has actually made the Melbourne Cup field. That’s something that, say, Victoria Beckham can’t claim.
Now for why Red Ruler cannot possibly win the Melbourne Cup.
The 6 year old gelding just has not won at this level or distance. He has 1 win in 32 starts. While he won’t carry much (just 53.5kg) it won’t matter, and neither will the decent barrier 8 start.
