2010 Melbourne Cup Form at Flemington Track

2010 Melbourne Cup Form at Flemington Track

There are lots of things to consider when placing your bets on the 2010 Melbourne Cup today, but one of the most important factors is the Melbourne Cup form of the horses at the Flemington track.

The $6 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) is scheduled as Race 7 at Flemington today, due to jump at 3:00pm (AEDST).

This means there is less than three hours until the 2010 Melbourne Cup start time, so you need to get ready to pick your favourites for the famous handicap feature now!

The form of the 23 Melbourne Cup horses at the Flemington track can be a key indicator to which stayer will become the 2010 Melbourne Cup winner and which other runners will finish off the Melbourne Cup Trifecta and First Four placings.

Here the Races.com.au team have a quick look at a number of interesting chances in the 2010 Melbourne Cup field and look at their Flemington form leading up to the gruelling 3200m showdown.

#1 Shocking

Reigning Melbourne Cup champion Shocking has one of the most imposing Flemington records of any of his rivals today.

Flemington is Shocking’s home turf and the Mark Kavanagh-trained five-year-old has only been defeated twice here when second to Zipping in the Turnbull and a gallant sixth in the Mackinnon last Saturday.

#2 Campanologist

Has no form in Australia to consider, but can handle the left-handed track at Flemington ok, better than some of the other unknown internationals.

#3 So You Think

Brilliant at Flemington last start with a slashing win in the Mackinnon, before that his only run here was second in last year’s Emirates Stakes. Flemington form good, distance unknown.


This nine-year-old is well and truly tested at Flemington. Plenty of experience at this track and in this race. Especially impressive Flemington form this season with wins in the Group 1 Australia Cup (2000m) and Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m).

Another last recent winner at Flemington to include in Trifectas is Harris Tweed, who took out the Listed Bart Cummings over 2500m here two starts back.

Runners that are likely to struggle at Flemington include Mr Medici more suited to run right handed and Buccellati whose only run at Flemington in the past two years was seventh in the Turnbull to Zipping.
