Don’t Overlook Moyenne Corniche In 2011 Melbourne Cup

After his first up run in Australia Moyenne Corniche was considered a bit of a prospect for the 2011 Melbourne Cup but since then the horses support appears to have dropped off.

It’s hard to see why given the form from that race has stacked up and there have been no problems with his preparation since according to all reports from his stable.

Still though you can pick up a massive $26 fixed price for Moyenne Corniche with online bookmaker Luxbet making him fantastic value.

What’s more if you join right now it’ll only cost you $25 to put $100 on the nose!

You could do a lot worse than using that free bet on Moyenne Corniche, a European import for trainer Brian Ellison.

He arrived in Australian after winning the Ebor Handicap by a length, ironically he started that race at $26 as well.

He was to have one run in Australia before the Melbourne Cup, the Herbert Power Stakes on October 8.

He wasn’t fully fit and not given much of a hope but he produced plenty more than expected from his, yet again, $26 quote.

After getting back deep in the field he was blocked for a run nearly all the way up the straight before finally getting out and flying the final 200m.

It was good enough to take him from 10th to third and on the surface it appears a fantastic Cup trial.

Take into consideration the fitness he’ll take from it and that fact he drops a full 5kg for the Cup and Moyenne Corniche is surely a big shot for the 2011 Melbourne Cup.
