Glass Harmonium

Suddenly the class runner of the Cup, at least from the Australian trained horses after an all the way win in the Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) on Saturday. His trainer Mike Moroney is a little concerned he can run the 3200m right out but Glass Harmonium is in good hands with Moroney having trained the 2000 Melbourne Cup winner Brew. He placed in the 2400m Brisbane Cup behind Tullamore and that is as far as he has raced. This six year old has drawn badly in barrier 23 but is still likely to get across and lead the field. One thing he does love is Flemington and it may carry him a long way. Normally Mackinnon winner would be a short price for the Melbourne Cup but Luxbet have this fella at $34 with the distance doubt in mind. If he can run it you are getting great odds but that one is an unknown even to the experts.
