The Godolphin runners have been slightly overlooked in the 2011 Melbourne Cup but Lost In The Moment is the type of horse that could quickly change that.
The five year old arrives in Australia with quite an imposing record earned back in the UK and it’s his consistent style that bodes well for the Melbourne Cup.
He’s had 17 starts so far in his career for four victories and a further five minor placings.
They’ve been in good grades too with almost exclusive black type racing the order of the day for Lost In the Moment.
His last start was in the Lodge Stakes at Ascot where he started at just $4 but disappointed to run fourth in a seven horse race.
Prior to that he was in the Ebor Handicap but came home seventh over four lengths off Moyenne Corniche.
He did come very close in the Goodwood Cup though only missing by a head from Opinion Poll.
The big question surrounding Opinion Poll like a few of the Europeans is that he’s straight into the Melbourne Cup without an Australian start.
That’s a red flag for many punters and probably why he’s so long in the market.
Right now at Luxbet he’s at $31 and one of the horses that’s had the most attention.
His price has fluctuated from a $31 open into $26 before going back out to $35 and then into $31 again.
Punters just can’t seem to make up their mind on Lost In The Moment for the 2011 Melbourne Cup so the odds are still there to be taken.
