Can Tac De Boistron Makes It Three In A Row For The French in the 2012 Melbourne Cup?

Highly progressive stayer Tac De Boistron heads into the 2012 Melbourne Cup looking to continue the recent French dominance of the race.

The son of Take Risks is now trained by Victorian Mick Kent and made his Australian debut in the 2012 Geelong Cup (2400m) finishing sixth, well over seven lengths behind winner Gatewood.

The six-year-old gelding has produced some strong performances in French staying races and won the Prix Maurice De Nieuil (2800m) at his last start before coming to Australia.

The Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock Syndicate obviously saw some potential in Tac De Boistron but is the French galloper good enough to win the 2012 Melbourne Cup?

Read on below to see how Tac De Boistron stacks up against other Melbourne Cup contenders.
