Sans Frontieres Ruled Out of 2010 Melbourne Cup

Top rated international entry Sans Frontieres has been withdrawn from the 2010 Melbourne Cup by trainer Jeremy Noseda due to the European galloper suffering severe muscle stiffness.

Rated a $15 chance through Sportsbet to win the 150th Emirates Melbourne Cup at Flemington on Tuesday November 2, Noseda notified the Racing Victoria Limited (RVL) last night that Irish St Leger winner Sans Frontieres will not make the trip to Australia for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

A brief email from Noseda to RVL operations manger Leigh Jordon simply stated they were “pulling the pin” on Sans Fronteires’ Melbourne Cup campaign.

Barry Simpson, a spokesman for owner Sir Robert Ogden, has stated that the reason for Sans Fronteires’ withdrawal from the Melbourne Cup was that the four-year-old had suffered a azoturia attack after track work at Newmarket, the sever muscle stiffness ending his chance to run in the world’s richest handicap this year.

The British galloper was scheduled to arrive Down Under on Saturday along with 2008 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer and Goodwood Cup winner Illustrious Blue.

The leading overseas raiders in the Melbourne Cup betting are now the Dermot Weld-trained Profound Beauty and French stayer Americain, both paying $15 at Sportsbet.

Profound Beauty is due to arrive in Melbourne next Tuesday along with Godolphin’s trio of Melbourne Cup hopefuls Campanologist, Holberg and Eastern Aria.
