Waterhouse Desperate For Maiden Melbourne Cup Win In 2011

Gai Waterhouse has never won the Melbourne Cup but she’s throwing absolutely everything at the race in 2011.

She will have two runners in the event with Tullamore the favoured option ahead of Sydney Cup runner up Older Than Time.

Waterhouse has come under fire from critics who say she’s been at the best selfish and at the worst stupid in accepting for Older Than Time after it ran near last in the Lexus Stakes on Saturday.

Many have said it’s ludicrous it’s still in the field when the in form Bauer misses out in 25th position.

Gai Waterhouse

Gai Waterhouse is still yet to win a Melbourne Cup title.

Regardless of what your view is there’s no questioning how badly she wants to win the race after falling just short on two occasions so far in her career.

First it was with Nothin’ Leica Dane which was runner-up to Doriemus in 1996 and then Te Akau Nick which ran second to Vintage Crop, in 1993.

She’s simply desperate for a win and has made no secrets about her desire to take her place in Melbourne Cup history.

As for her chance sin 2011 Tullamore is rated as a $26 with Luxbet while Older Than Time is the $151 outsider of the field.

If Tullamore was to win the race he would follow in the footsteps of Viewed in claiming a rare Brisbane Cup / Melbourne Cup double.

Only one other horse in history has achieved that honour when Macdougall saluted in 1959 when the Brisbane Cup was still at 3200m.

On form Tullamore is easily the pick of her duo after he ran second to Americain in the Moonee Valley Cup and third in the Caulfield Cup after sitting three wide throughout.

He also drew well with gate 12 and should be able to pick up a bit of cover and be a real threat coming off the turn.

You can take the $26 about Tullamore now with Luxbet and in the process score a free $100 bet!

Simply plug in the code 100BONUSBET when you register an account and with a deposit of just $25 you’ll have a $100 free bet to use on any race of the spring carnival.

As for Older Than Time, well you could use your free bet on her as well but you’d be a brave person to do so.

She was never in the race during the Lexus Stakes and faces a massive test form barrier 20.

She has run second over the trip though in the Group 1 Sydney Cup so if you have faith in her that free bet could turn into a crazy $15,100..not bad considering there’s no risk!
