Illo Can Upset Americain – 2012 Australian Cup

When German race favourite Lucas Cranach was today ruled out of the 2012 Australian Cup, another German horse in Illo came in to the mix as $5.50 second favourite at bookmaker.com.au.

Illo

Illo can upset Americain in the 2012 Australian Cup

The six-year-old will have to topple 2012 Melbourne Cup winner Americain to take top honours over the 2000 metres but is a strong chance in the $1 million event.

Coming off a second-place finish to Lucas Cranach in the Peter Young Stakes, the German horse has “Cups King” Bart Cummings on his side who is gunning for a 14th Australian Cup.

Illo is an experienced stayer, with all of his career victories coming at distances of 2000 metres or more.

The German stayer will run two gates in from Americain when he comes out of barrier seven with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.
