The Melbourne Cup has transformed from the race that stops the nation into the race that stops the world in recent years. The prestige of winning the big race attracts the very best from around the world, looking to share in the fame and fortune that success in the race brings.
The form lines and path to the race add to the intrigue. Some horses will be having their first start in Australia on the day. Others have followed more traditional style build-ups. Some are returning after good runs last year. This race has it all!
Can MER DE GLACE ($6.50) be the first horse since ETHEREAL to win the Caulfield/Melbourne Cup double and complete a clean sweep of the Big 3 for Japan? Will CROSS COUNTER ($14) be the first horse since MAKYBE DIVA to win consecutive Cups? Will PRINCE OF ARRAN ($17) emulate MEDIA PUZZLE with the Geelong/Melbourne Cup double?
The Danny O’Brien trained VOW AND DECLARE ($12) looks to be the best local chance. Star hoop Craig Williams will take the ride and with 52kgs the 4yo looks well weighted.
Palmerbet CEO Grant Palmer said this week, “The Cup is always an exciting race for racegoers and is firmly entrenched as an international event now. With the big field and a host of winning chances, you will get great odds if you can find the winner.”
