Murwillumbah trainer Matthew Dunn is looking...
The 2012 Melbourne Cup is just over fifteen minutes away. Below are our final thoughts heading into the race:
#1 – Dunaden – Champion stayer that is good enough to break the Melbourne Cup metric weight carrying record.
#2 – Americain – Could join Peter Pan as the only horse to win the Melbourne Cup twice in non-consecutive years.
#3 – Jakkalberry – Will need to improve on his mediocre Caulfield Cup effort.
#4 – Red Cadeaux – Deserves to go one better in 2012.
#5 – Winchester – Could make a late charge but probably won’t be a factor.
#6 – Voila Ici – We be the leader at some stage.
#7 – Cavalryman – Could fly under the radar and surprise.
#8 – Mount Athos – Has been well backed and appears weighted to win the race.
# 9 – Sanagas – Can never rule out a Bart Cummings-trained stayer.
#10 – Ethiopia – Best Australian chance.
#11 – Fiorente – Can cause a boil over if he performs at his best.
#12 – Galileo’s Choice – Would have preferred it to rain.
#13- Glencadam Gold – Would need to improve significantly.
#14 – Green Moon – Can bounce back from average Cox Plate performance.
#15 – Maluckyday – Will be strong late but will he be close enough?
#16 – Mourayan – Honest stayer who will try his heart out.
#17 – My Quest For Peace – Might upset more fancied stablemate.
#18 – Niwot – Can’t see him improving on last year’s effort.
#19 – Tac De Boistron – Not on the same level as other European stayers.
#20 – Lights of Heaven – Only mare in the race is a live chance
#21 – Precedence – Even with the Bart factor it would be a surprise.
#22 – Unusual Suspect – Would be biggest boil over in Melbourne Cup history.
#23 – Zabeelionaire – Should finish in the top ten but probably can’t win.
#24 – Kelinni – Gets in with a good weight.
