The Lindsay Park trained Boom Time scored a shock win at $101 when he powered through the line to win the Group 1 $3.15m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 21.

Bookies at Ladbrokes.com.au haven’t got him at the that three figure quote this time but he is still marked at the double figure odds of $26 for the Group 1 $6.25m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on Tuesday.

Tough New Zealand staying mare Ethereal was the last horse to complete the Caulfield Cup – Melbourne Cup double in the same year in 2001.

Boom Time has only been tested at the 3200m on one occasion and co-trainer Ben Hayes said that the heavy track conditions were a factor that saw him finish eleventh to Polarisation in the Group 1 $2m Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick during the 2017 Sydney Autumn Carnival.

“The only time we’ve tried him at 3200m was in the Sydney Cup and we’ve since found out he doesn’t like going the Sydney way and he didn’t handle the heavy track,” Hayes wrote in the Herald Sun.

“I think if we get him on a dry track over the 3200m, he’s a good chance with a light weight.”

“In the Caulfield Cup he ran through the line and kept going, which tells you he was not knocking up and can definitely go further.”

Boom Time received a 1kg Melbourne Cup penalty for his win in the Caulfield Cup, taking his weight up to 53kg and the former West Australian trained six year old will jump from barrier nine with Caulfield Cup winning jockey Cory Parish in the saddle again.

The Lindsay Park Team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig will also saddle up $34 chance Ventura Storm in the Melbourne Cup.

Glen Boss takes over the reins from the suspended Damien Oliver who was aboard last start for a thirteenth to his stablemate Boom Time in the Caulfield Cup and the three times Melbourne Cup winning jockey is certain to give the European import a perfect ride from barrier six in the twenty-four horse field.

Ventura Storm came out of the Caulfield Cup with a minor foot injury but Ben Hayes said that five year old has fully recovered and he is expecting a better showing in the Melbourne Cup.
