Unusual Suspect Out To Win 2011 Melbourne Cup For New Owners

Unusual Suspect

Can Unusual Suspect win the Melbourne Cup 2011?

With 40% of Unusual Suspect sold to Australian connections last week, the new owners are desperately hoping their newest stable star can win the 2011 Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse on Tuesday.

Unusual Suspect is currently paying odds of $31 to win the 2011 Melbourne Cup at Luxbet.

The American eight-year-old entire has drawn barrier seven for the 2011 Melbourne Cup, which will allow his jockey to settle into an ideal position in the race.

Unusual Suspect currently does not have a jockey assigned, after Nash Rawiller lost his appeal to have an eight-meeting careless riding suspension he received at Bendigo earlier this week revoked.

Rawiller has lodged a stay of proceedings request to allow him to ride in the Melbourne Cup 2011 and the result will be revealed tomorrow.

Unusual Suspect’s most recent win came in the Group 1 Hollywood Turf Cup in November last year and was over a distance of 2,400 metres.

Why Unusual Suspect Can’t Win The 2011 Melbourne Cup

  • Since barriers were introduced to the Melbourne Cup in 1958, only one horse has managed to win the race from barrier seven
  • Only 2 eight-year-old horses have won the race in the Melbourne Cup’s 150 years
  • He has never run over the 3,200 metre distance
  • He has never competed at Flemington racecourse
  • He has never finished better than fourth in Australia
  • He has won all his races in good-rated track, and the Melbourne Cup will at best be run on a Dead 4
  • Melbourne Cup will be horse’s 60th race start
  • Finished disappointing 10th of 12 in the Listed Cranbourne Cup

Why Unusual Suspect Can Win The 2011 Melbourne Cup

  • Despite the apparent curse of barrier seven, Unusual Suspect will have the perfect opportunity to settle wherever he chooses in the 24-horse Melbourne Cup running
  • He finished just 3 lengths behind winner in Caulfield Cup last start and ran fastest last 600 metres.
  • He will carry 54 kilograms in the Melbourne Cup 2011, which is the average weight of the past 10 Cup winners.
