The Flemington track, home to the 2010 Melbourne Cup at 3:00pm (AEDST) today, is currently rated a Dead 5 upgraded from the Slow 7 it was evaluated at yesterday.
2010 Melbourne Cup track – Flemington currently rated Dead 5
After Flemington had deteriorated to a Heavy 9 on Victoria Derby Day last Saturday, today’s track rating is a massive improvement.
There is still a significant amount of give in the track, keeping those Melbourne Cup horses that like the ground worse than good including Geelong Cup winner Americain, Irish mare Profound Beauty and Manighar a solid chance in the 150th Melbourne Cup.
With only slight showers forecast for Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day, by the Melbourne Cup start time the track could be up to a Dead 4.
The rails are out 3 metres the entire circuit, while the penetrometer is at 4.83 – perfect for the internationals.
