Can Glencadam Gold Outshine His Competitors In 2012 Melbourne Cup?

Glencadam Gold will be looking to get his spring carnival back on track with a win in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup at Flemington tomorrow November 6, 2012.

The Refuse To Bend gelding was unbeaten across his first four starts this spring, however, was not at his best in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup last start when finishing 15th of 18 runners.

Glencadam Gold has drawn barrier seven for the 2012 Melbourne Cup and will be ridden by jockey Tommy Berry.

It will be the first Melbourne Cup appearance for Berry, who will be hoping for beginner’s luck tomorrow.

Can Glencadam Gold rebound from his last start defeat? Check out the facts below and make your mind up for yourself.
