Will 2012 Melbourne Cup be Sweet for Jakkalberry?

Globetrotter Jakkalberry joins the large contingent of overseas raiders looking to steal glory in Australia’s favourite race, the 2012 Melbourne Cup.

The seven-year-old produced an uninspiring performance in the Caulfield Cup but trainer Marco Botti has described his charge as a “tough horse” and is tipping him to improve on Tuesday.

So will this seasoned traveller overcome a big price with the bookies and salute for his Australian owners? Or will it be a case of simply another international who couldn’t quite make the grade on the biggest stage?

Keep reading for all the key Jakkalberry stats as well as the reasons for and against him succeeding come race 7 on Melbourne Cup day.
