2012 Melbourne Cup Horses – Top Form

With the 2012 Melbourne Cup just a matter of days away, we have put together a form guide for the most talked about horses in this year’s race.

#1 Dunaden

Dunaden will be going into the Melbourne Cup with a flawless record in Australia to his name.

The seven-year-old has won all three of his races Down Under and will be looking to continue that tradition this Tuesday.

Dunaden will be at the track to defend last year’s Melbourne Cup win, which he posted in front of Red Cadeaux and Lucas Cranach.

The Nicobar entire won the $2.5 million Cauflield Cup last start and is in top form going into the 2012 Melbourne Cup.

He is proven at both the track and the distance and is suited to his barrier draw of 16.

#2 Americain

Americain produced an impressive fourth placing in the Caulfield Cup last start and demonstrated that he is not to be forgotten in the Melbourne Cup field.

And forgotten he is not, firming into the $5 favourite to win his second Melbourne Cup start in three years.

The eight-year-old has only finished outside the placings on one occasion at this track, when an unlucky fourth in last year’s Melbourne Cup behind Dunaden.

#4 Red Cadeaux

Red Cadeuax placed second in last year’s Melbourne Cup in what was the narrowest margin in the race’s long history.

The seven-year-old is back with a vengeance this year and will have the Cup firmly in his sights.

Ridden by Michael Rodd, Red Cadeaux will once again come into the race fresh from quarantine. His most recent result was a second placing over 3,200 metres at York Racecourse in England, so no queries at all about the distance.

#10 Ethiopia


Ethiopia is one of 24 Melbourne Cup horses.

Ethiopia will be representing the Australian bred horses in the Melbourne Cup 2012.

The Helenus gelding finished fourth in the Group 1 Cox Plate last start and is poised to produce a big run this Tuesday.

Ethiopia will only have to carry 53.5 kilograms in the 2012 Melbourne Cup and will jump from barrier 14 in the race.

However, there is doubt over whether he can run out the distance.

#14 Green Moon

After his unexpected performance in the Cox Plate last start, punters have deserted Green Moon in the Melbourne Cup betting markets.

However, with his run likely having been caused by a run in with Glass Harmonium mid race, Green Moon is a good chance to rebound in the 2012 Mebourne Cup.

The six-year-old knows the track well, but will be attempting the two mile distance for the first time.
