Trainer Kris Lees’ multiple Group 1 winner Le...
The Melbourne Cup is due to run at Flemington Racecourse tomorrow November 6, 2012, and below you will find a form guide detailing 24 horses in the race.
With his Caulfield Cup win behind him, he appears in career best form going into the Melbourne Cup.
He is no query over the distance or the racetrack and is a good chance to make the placings here.
Has a lot of work to do from his last start 13th in the Caulfield Cup. This looks beyond him.
#4 Red Cadeaux
He’s better poised here to take out Dunaden with a light weight. Trainer also claims he’s an even better horse this time around.
Don’t be surprised if this horse produces a sweeping run to finish top ten. Don’t think he’s a winning hope.
#6 Voila Ici
The distance is the biggest query for Voila Ici who faded to last in the Caulfield Cup last start.
Owned by the prominent Godolphin stable, Cavalryman has not been seen before on Australian shores.
#8 Mount Athos
Well backed to win here and has the form to match. He’s our best pick for this year’s race.
Sanagas is out-classed here. His only saving grace is his champion trainer Bart Cummings.
A good chance for the Aussies here. He showed his talent in the Cox Plate last start, where he ran a nice fourth.
Fiorente is a surprise package in the Cup. Never seen before in Australia and has mixed form overseas. Not without a chance.
#12 Galileo’s Choice
If there is rain tomorrow then Galileo’s Choice is in with a big chance. Proven over the distance and beyond, he is an ex hurdler.
#13 Glencadam Gold
No-one knows if he can run the two mile trip and he will have to recover from a disappointing performance last start.
#14 Green Moon
Another one who will be running 3,200 metres for the first time. Possible chance here after suffering interference last start.
After his fifth placing in the Geelong Cup last start he will have to pick up his game considerably if he wants to be in the finish.
Won the Craven Plate last start and offers good value in the Cup. Could surprise the internationals here.
#17 My Quest For Peace
Had the run of the race in the Caulfield Cup but still couldn’t finish the race off. Don’t feel he can stay.
He is proven over the distance but probably isn’t in his best form going into the Melbourne Cup.
#19 Tac De Boistron
After his run at Geelong last start he doesn’t have too many supporters in the race. We don’t blame them.
#20 Lights Of Heaven
She may be the only mare in the race but she is probably the best performed of all the Australian bred horses in the Cup.
He is most likely out of his league, but Bart Cummings has done more with less.
#22 Unusual Suspect
Really isn’t of the same class as most of these runners but may sneak into the top 10 like he did last year.
He looked like he wanted more in the Caulfield Cup two starts back and could keep the race interesting in the final stages.
With his light weight and top form, expect to see Kelinni flying down the outside in the final stages of the race. Just how close to the front he gets is yet to be seen.
