Waterhouse Believes Its Her Turn To Win The Melbourne Cup

Leading trainer Gai Waterhouse believes that Fiorente and Glencadam Gold are both live chances in the 2012 Melbourne Cup that will be run at Flemington Racecourse today.

Waterhouse has twice had the runner-up in the Melbourne Cup (Te Akau Nick in 1993 and Nothin’ Leica Dane in 1995) and is desperate to claim one of the only major races on the Australian racing calendar that she hasn’t won.

Glencadam Gold was disappointing in the 2012 Caulfield Cup (2400m) but Waterhouse is confident he can bounce back to form today.

“He is at his absolute optimum,” Waterhouse said.

“I had him jumping as late as yesterday morning. He loved it.

“You’ll see the “Metropolitan” Glencadam, not the Caulfield one.”

Fiorente has only recently joined the Waterhouse stable and heads into the Melbourne Cup with excellent European form.

Waterhouse is adamant that the import has been underrated and deserves to be considered on the same level as the leading European stayers.

“I have supervised his work and am delighted with him,” the leading trainer said.

“His jockey, James McDonald, is over the moon with him.

“Of the European horses, on their ratings and weights, Fiorente is entitled to Cup favouritism.”

Both Fiorente and Glencadam Gold are currently priced at  $41 in the 2012 Melbourne Cup betting market at bookmaker.com.au.
