Lucas Cranach Hard To Fault Ahead Of Melbourne Cup 2011

Since being purchased from Germany earlier this year, Lucas Cranach has evolved into one of the best Melbourne Cup 2011 hopes of the year.

The five-year-old entire finished an eye catching fifth last start in the $2.5 million Caulfield Cup last start, running home for fifth despite being posted wide on the turn.

Lucas Cranach finished just three lengths off the winner, Southern Speed, despite suffering from a well-documented hoof injury at the time.

With his cracked heel completely recovered and having gained extra fitness from his Caulfield Cup run, Lucas Cranach looms as the possible winner of the Melbourne Cup 2011.

What are Lucas Cranach’s Chances Of Winning The 2011 Melbourne Cup?

Lucas Cranach has drawn well in the barriers and will jump from gate 11 in the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

The gelding has proven his ability by finishing an unlucky fifth in the Caulfield Cup and appears in ideal form ahead of Tuesday’s race.

Lucas Cranach has won three times over 2,400 metres, however, has never attempted to run anything further.

Therefore, the Melbourne Cup 2011 will be Lucas Cranach’s first attempt at the classic distance of 3,200 metres.

Five time Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Lee Freedman has looked after Lucas Cranach since he was purchased earlier this year and his brother Anthony Freedman is the horse’s trainer.

Lucas Cranach has won five of his ten starts coming into the 2011 Melbourne Cup and will be partnered by talented jockey Corey Brown.

Lucas Cranach Melbourne Cup Fact: Lucas Cranach’s sire, Mamool, competed in the 2003 Melbourne Cup at Flemington and finished a long last in the race.
