2011 Melbourne Cup Features In-Form Mourayan

Irish stayer Mourayan is in the form of his life ahead of the $6 million Melbourne Cup this Tuesday November 1, 2011.

Mourayan, who was transferred from Ireland to Australia at the end of 2009, finished second to Glass Harmonium in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes last start.

The Alhaarth entire has finished inside the top four in four of his five runs this preparation.

Mourayan beat yesterday’s The Lexus Stakes winner Niwot by two lengths in the Listed The Bart Cummings Quality at Flemington earlier this month, adding weight to his form going into the 2011 Melbourne Cup.
