Last year’s Melbourne Cup winner is back in Australia in a big way. Last year he was restricted to just two runs. The Geelong Cup and Melbourne Cup and won them both. Again it is a two race attack and the first one is already in the bag. Americain won the Moonee Valley Cup on October 22 and now it is on to the Cup. His old and wise trainer Alain de Royer Dupre arrived Sunday morning before the Cup and watched the seven year old work and came up with one word. “Perfect”. His has 3-1/2kg more than last year but will start favourite and deservedly so. Luxbet have it at $4/40 fav.
