2012 Melbourne Cup – What the Trainers Are Saying

The Melbourne Cup is due to run at Flemington Racecourse tomorrow November 6, 2012, and will be the culmination of the hard work of seventeen trainers from all around the globe.

Here is what they have to say about their horses chances the night before ‘the race that stops a nation’.

#1 DunadenMikel Delzanlges: “I know he is courageous and will try his best.”

#2 AmericainStephanie Nigge (Assistant Trainer): “The horse could not be better and we couldn’t be happier.”

#3 JakkalberryMarco Botti: “He’s a tough horse who is handling it [Melbourne Cup preparation] well.”

#4 Red CadeauxEd Dunlop: “Dunaden has beaten us three times and he’ll probably beat us again but we’ve got a live chance.”

#5 WinchesterJohn Sadler: “The horse is good, I’m really pleased with him.”

#6 Voila IciPeter Moody: “He has worked well, I can’t fault him.”

#7 CavalrymanSaeed Bin Suroor:  “He won over two miles earlier this season, so we know he stays the trip, and he also goes on any ground, which could be important as there is rain forecast.”

#8 Mount AthosLuca Cumani: “I’m very pleased with the way he has been training. The rest now is up to him and his jockey.”

#9 Sanagas Bart Cummings: “The horse definitely stays, he has done it before over there [in America] and he can do again.”

#10 EthiopiaPat Carey: “It would be nice to see an Australian horse run well and win so hopefully that’s us.”

#11 FiorenteGai Waterhouse: “We have a horse that can win the Melbourne Cup. We have got a few really good clients in this horse and they are going to get to experience of the biggest race of the year.”

#12 Galileo’s Choice Dermot Weld: I’m sure he’ll represent us very well … he won’t let anybody down.

#13 Glencadam GoldGai Waterhouse: “He’s a very fit horse, he’s been in work a long time, he’s ready to fire, I can tell you.”

#14 Green MoonLloyd Williams: “Green Moon hasn’t shown to me he is a genuine weight-for-age horse but when he gets back to 53.5kg in a handicap race at Flemington, he is a terrific competitor.”

#15 MaluckydayWayne Hawkes: “Maluckyday is ready to run the race of his life on Tuesday.”

#16 Mourayan Lloyd Williams: “Mourayan is a solid stayer who will be suited by a truly run race.”

#17 My Quest For PeaceLuca Cumani: ”I thought he ran very well (in the Caulfield Cup) because we were a bit closer to the pace than we would have liked and you have a look at the first six in the race, the other five have all finished out the back and he was the only horse still there, only beaten a length and three-quarters.”

#18 NiwotWayne Hawkes: “I was disappointed with his Caulfield Cup run but he has trained on really well since then and we are really happy with his progress.”

#19 Tac De BoistronMick Kent: “I was hoping we’d draw inside, maybe barrier 10. But it could be all about where he settles in the race.”

#20 Lights of HeavenPeter Moody “She meets them at the same weight, she’s very fit, very healthy, her work has been first class.”

#21 PrecedenceBart Cummings: “The times he has been running on the track have been great and the barrier won’t stop him if he is good enough.”

#22 Unusual SuspectMick Kent: “I’m not sure he could win the Cup but there’s a decent race in him.”

#23 ZabeelionaireLeon Corstens: “Everything is going really well at this stage, he is looking really good.”

#24 Kelinni Chris Waller: “Now he’s in, he will be competitive.”
