Saturday 02/11/19 – Best Bet of 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival
BEST BET OF THE 2019 MELBOURNE CUP CARNIVAL
Weekend King Racing’s Best Bet of 2019 Carnival at Flemington.
Jockey: Joshua Parr
Trainer: Mark Newnham
Lightly raced 3 year old Pierro gelding that comes here off the back authoritative wins in the G3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) and last start in the G1 Spring Champion (2000m) at Randwick.
The form out of the Spring Champion win is white-hot with runner-up, Castelvecchio, who Shadow Hero beat fair & square by 1 length that day coming out & running brilliantly when a threatening 2nd in last week’s WFA championship, Cox Plate, only beaten by superstar international mare Lyx Gracieux.
Has always loomed in his 6 racetrack outtings that the further he runs over the better he’ll get, so the step up to 2500m looks perfect now.
Looks a clear standout bet of the week!
