Can The Ollie Factor Win Americain The 2012 Melbourne Cup?

Americain has retained his favouritism for the 2012 Melbourne Cup after drawing barrier 12 for the race in two days’ time.

The seven-year-old will have to contend with an impressive line-up of 24 runners in the field, including last year’s winner Dunaden.

However, Americain has proven himself in the Melbourne Cup before and remains the $5 favourite at to win the $6 million event.

Co-owner Gerry Ryanwas thrilled to have drawn what he feels is the perfect barrier for Americain in the 2012 Melbourne Cup.


Americain is currently favourite to win the 2012 Melbourne Cup at Flemington.

“Great barrier draw, we’re very happy,” Ryan said.

“The horse is in great condition, Stephanie’s (Nigge) the most relaxed I’ve seen her because she knows the horse is right to go.

“We’re going to be very competitive.”
