Intriguing likely raced runner that looks one of the better roughies in the race. Expect him to improve out of Geelong and think the 3200m on a big track should suit. I have him completing my top 7 and no shock if he acts as a blow out for exotics. A win would shock though.
A lot of money around for him but not for me. Unproven at the distance. Mostly racing against much smaller fields. Cracksman and Tiberian form looks good though but was a bit disappointed with his Geelong Cup performance. Not in my top4
It's not the Melbourne Cup if you don't pick out a 100-1 shot for the multiples. VM is mine. Will stay the trip no problem and the low draw was perfect. Got shuffled back and lost ground in the CC when Our Taj Mahal took off early but was only beaten 4.5L. Moroney has rated the horse as a cup runner for a long time. Lob a place sweet prince.
Wasn't the worst run in the Caulfield Cup but he is a good 2 or 3 levels below most of these for class. Could see him maybe sneaking top 10 if he ran to his absolute best but thats about it. Expect him to finish about 16th-20th
