2015 Melbourne Cup Odds: The United States Eases

The United States began his racing tenure under the guidance of leading Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien in 2012, and has posted a commendable career record of five wins and three minors through only twelve competitive starts.

Having completed an ideal lead-in to the Race That Stops a Nation with success in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2500m) on October 24th, Williams is confident the Galileo entire is in peak condition and will prove a force in the race, despite his current 2015 Melbourne Cup odds.

“He’s fit and well,” Williams said this week.

“He’s come through that race at Moonee Valley well. I think he’s improved a bit and he’s looking for a trip.”

Purchased and transferred to the care of Robert Hickmott at the conclusion of his 2013 campaign, The United States immediately stamped his claims as one to watch upon debuting to Australian racing in early 2014; running on for a credible fourth in the Listed Super Saturday Stakes (1400m) before immediately returning to the paddock.

Returning to racing for a solitary start last spring and third in the Sportingbet Handicap (1500m) on August 23rd, The United States was given little chance of success amongst talented company in the Sweeney Estate Agents Handicap (1500m) on August 22nd but mustered a big kick in the final straight to hit the line comfortably clear of closest rival Abbasso.

Progressing to second behind Chance To Dance in the Craig Opie Cup (1600m), The United States made a competitive transition to black type racing when second in the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) on September 19th; running a luckless sixth in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) in his only other start prior to the Moonee Valley Cup on October 2nd.

Leading Hong Kong hoop Joao Moreira has been confirmed to take the ride on The United States in the 2015 Melbourne Cup and will leave from the ideal barrier 3 with a very manageable 52.5kgs in tow.

Further to his Melbourne Cup odds of $21 for success, The United States is currently available at a quote of $6.30 to finish in the first three at Ladbrokes.com.au.
