Drunken Sailor

Missed a Melbourne Cup start last year when narrowly failed to make the field. He did race and disappointed twice in the 2010 CaulfieldCup and 2010 Queen’s Cup at Flemington. He seems to have had a better time of it this year in Europe and had a win over Jukebox Jury at Goodwood when snuck up on the fence. He has had one run in Australia this year when seventh in the Caulfield Cup to Southern Speed. Nicely drawn in barrier eight, he handles both wet and dry ground but perhaps wet would be best. A great omen tip on this celebrated day. His is great odds with Luxbet at $41 and he is more than a flukers hope.
