The Zabeel gelding has run in the past two Melbourne Cups, finishing eighth in 2010 and a gutsy eleventh, after leading for most of the race, in 2011.

The seven-year-old heads in ‘the race that stops a nation’ in decent form having run an unlucky fourth behind Vatuvei in the Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) at his last start.

Cups King Bart Cummings said that Precedence has been setting career best times in trackwork and believes the wide barrier will not stop him if he is good enough.

Precedence is sure to be carrying a great deal of sentimental money tomorrow but is he a realistic chance in the 2012 Melbourne Cup?
