SEA OF CLASS 55 kg JAMES WILLIAM DOYLE WJ HAGGAS

1.DEFOE:

Trainer: Roger Varian

Jockey: Andrea Atzeni

Odds: $41.00

Group One wins: None

This son of Arc winner Dalakhani was back to his previously progressive form of last season in the wet spring, capped by victory in the Jockey Club Cup at Newmarket in May.

His dislike for fast ground was illustrated by defeat in the Tattersalls Gold Cup behind Lancaster Bomber in May and he was kept at home during the summer.

There is not a lot wrong with his comeback second in the Grosser Preis Von Baden, when surrendering ground on the home turn to finish a neck behind Godolphin’s Best Solution, but looks unlikely to get the testing conditions he needs.

2.SALOUEN:

Trainer: Sylvester Kirk

Jockey: Oisin Murphy

Odds: $67.00

Group One wins: None

Seems capable of ssecuring a place without winning at whatever level he sets his sights at, going particularly close behind Cracksman under a masterful Silvestre De Sousa ride in the Coronation Cup at Epsom in June and ran bravely against Waldgeist at Saint-Cloud in the summer.

Has not gone forward in two subsequent efforts.

Snaffling a minor place, if not out of the question, is the best he can hope for.

3.CAPRI:

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey: Donnacha O’Brien

Odds: $17.00

Group One wins: Irish Derby, St Leger

A missing man for much of this season but as interesting as any of those at a big price.

Won what now looks an outstanding contest in last year’s St Leger and best forgiven beating only one home when reappearing just a fortnight later in the Arc.

Fifth spot behind Waldgeist on a belated comeback in the Prix Foy does not make encouraging reading on paper, but he hit a flat spot and rallied at the end. Capable of much better and is a big price for his achievements.

4.WAY TO PARIS:

Trainer: Antonio Marcialis

Jockey: Gerald Mosse

Odds: $101.00

Group One wins: None

Exactly 30 years since the last Italian-trained Arc winner, Tony Bin, and this would be considerably more of a surprise.

Deserving of a place in the line-up, given he has not been far behind Waldgeist on three occasions this year, most recently in the Prix Foy, but has never looked likely to overhaul that rival and there is no immediately forthcoming reason why that should change here.

5.WALDGEIST:

Trainer: Andre Fabre

Jockey: Pierre-Charles Boudot

Odds: $7.50

Group One wins: Criterium de Saint-Cloud, Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud

No trainer knows what an Arc horse looks like better than Andre Fabre and this son of Galileo appears to have been campaigned as one all season.

Not impressive in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud when he edged out Coronet, the four-year-old was far more convincing when winning the Prix Foy last month and must be greatly respected.

Whilst the ground is unlikely to be allowed to become lightning fast, it must be a concern whether he is effective on quicker conditions.

6.CLOTH OF STARS:

Trainer: Andre Fabre

Jockey: Vincent Cheminaud

Odds: $26.00

Group One wins: Prix Ganay

Ran a blinder last year to stay on through the field for second behind Enable, but had a much stronger back catalogue of efforts to show than he does this year. Encouragement could be taken from his third behind Waldgeist in the Foy and will have been brought on to peak here but still looks short of what is required.

7.TALISMANIC:

Trainer: Andre Fabre

Jockey: Mickael Barzalona

Odds: $21.00

Group One wins: Breeders’ Cup Turf

Popular performer, not only for his distinctive white markings but for a string of genuine efforts.

Fabre had no complaints with a runner-up placing behind Waldgeist in the Foy but issued some concern about the mile and a half now being a little beyond his capabilities.

Likes to hear his feet rattle, but this is a tougher test than when he won at the Breeders’ Cup.

8.TIBERIAN:

Trainer: Alain Couetil

Jockey: William Buick

Odds: $51.00

Group One wins: None

A fine servant to connections over time, who was a respectable seventh in the Melbourne Cup this time last year.

Unfortunately he is without a win in a year now and a tame fifth in the Grand Prix de Deauville was not a glowing recommendation for his prospects in such company.

9.CLINCHER:

Trainer: Hiroshi Miyamoto

Jockey: Yutaka Take

Odds: $51.00

Group One wins: None

Japanese runners in the Arc always merit respect but not many have arrived with less fanfare in recent years.

A fine third in the Tenno Sho over two miles and has some reasonable middle-distance form, too.

Although his trainer admitted prior to the Prix Foy that he would expect improvement on his next outing, there needs to be an awful lot as he was beaten eight lengths.

10.ENABLE:

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: Frankie Dettori

Odds: $2.10

Group One wins: Oaks, Irish Oaks, King George, Yorkshire Oaks, Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

There was not a more welcome sight all year than seeing this fabulous filly skip to a ready defeat of the high-class Crystal Ocean in the September Stakes at Kempton last month.

A fine winner of the race last year and she ought to strip even fitter after looking as if she had developed into an even more robust specimen on her first run since last October.

Earlier issues with her knees will continue to be a worry but if Gosden has her on the starting line, she will take all the beating.

11.NEUFBOSC:

Trainer: Pia Brandt

Jockey: Christian Demuro

Odds: $34.00

Group One wins: None

Lightly-raced colt who was worn down by Kew Gardens in the Grand Prix de Paris before being put away for the summer. Looked rather rusty under restrained tactics when third in the Prix Niel. Has a lot to prove on form, but represents a shrewd trainer who would not allow him to take part unless she felt he could be competitive.

Not an obvious winner, but not one to underestimate.

12.PATASCOY:

Trainer: Xavier Thomas-Demeaulte

Jockey: Olivier Peslier

Odds: $34.00

Group One wins: None

Appeared from out of the provincial tracks to run a blinder in the French Derby, finishing second behind Study Of Man from a wide draw. Unfortunately, that has not looked much of a race and although his comeback in a tactical race behind Knight To Behold at Deauville was perfectly OK, he just does not look good enough.

13.KEW GARDENS:

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey: Ryan Moore

Odds: $11.00

Group One wins: Grand Prix de Paris, St Leger

Had begun to look one to avoid in the Derby trials only to summon a dramatic turnaround, barely looking back since his towering win in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot. The change in tactics from a prominent role, to one being held-up seems to have made all the difference.

Produced an admirable victory in the St Leger and very much deserving of a chance at this level.

Main worry is that following up here after the demands of Doncaster has been beyond other Ballydoyle runners such as Leading Light, Scorpion and Capri and he is not an obviously different specimen.

14.STUDY OF MAN:

Trainer: Pascal Bary

Jockey: Stephane Pasquier

Odds: $34.00

Group One wins: Prix du Jockey Club

Showed a willing attitude in winning the French Derby but has not been smooth sailing since then, suffering fairly heavy defeats in both his Deauville comeback and in the Irish Champion Stakes.

Untried beyond a mile and a quarter and pedigree does not exactly scream that he wants the trip either, so fairly quickly passed by.

15.LOUIS D’OR:

Trainer: Tony Castanheira

Jockey: Antoine Hamelin

Odds: $101.00

Group One wins: None

One win at conditions level in 13 starts probably sums up the prospects of this fellow.

A career-best when outrunning huge odds to be third in the French Derby but has not built on that when his sights have been lowered and seemed not to stay when tried at this trip last time in the Prix Niel.

16.HUNTING HORN:

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey: Seamie O’Brien

Odds: $51.00

Group One wins: None

Made a valuable contribution to the O’Brien yard this year, not only winning the Hampton Court Stakes in fine fashion but taking third in the Belmont Derby and struggling to overcome a wide draw in the Secretariat Stakes.

Defeat to Brundtland in the Prix Niel, though, is not Arc-winning form and surely only included as back-up to Kew Gardens.

17.NELSON:

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey: Michael Hussey

Odds: $101.00

Group One wins: None

Been on pacemaking duties for Ballydoyle for most of the year and that is the only feasible reason for his inclusion in the field.

18.MAGICAL:

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey: Wayne Lordan

Odds: $51.00

Group One wins: None

Might well have got closer to Laurens in the Matron Stakes, but for meeting interference and looks to have been primed to pick up a big prize before the year is out.

However, managing that in such a distinguished line-up would be a lot to ask and although full-sister Rhododendron stayed a mile and a half, she has barely set foot beyond eight furlongs yet.

19.SEA OF CLASS

Trainer: William Haggas

Jockey: James Doyle

Odds: $4.50

Group One wins: Irish Oaks, Yorkshire Oaks

Missed the Oaks at Epsom but certainly made up for lost time and has really gelled with the confident riding of James Doyle.

Bred for the challenge and even his often cautious trainer has warmed to the idea of Paris.

Will not mind the dry spell and although this is a very different assignment to what she has experienced before, she ought to be ready for it.

2015 Cox Plate: Detailed look at the form & race replay’s of the 3 International horses

Before 2014 no international horse from Europe or Asia had been able to claim success in the Cox Plate, in fact very very few had even attempted it, and the one’s who had were often considered ‘third stringers’. But in the short space of just 12 months since Adelaide won the 2014 Cox Plate prepared by Aidan O’Brien the Irish master trainer, that’s all changed. Three top class Gr1 performed horses from Europe will line up in Saturday’s ‘WFA Championship of Australasia’ making form study a nightmare for those not wanting to troll through hours of video’s and overseas form. So we’ve done it for you and made a collaboration of the replays of the 3 horses and all their form. So sit back and have a look and see what you make of the overseas trio planning to take our prestigious WFA crown back to the norther hemisphere again.

After doing stringent form analysis and watching every replay at my disposal numerous times I’ve ranked the 3 for Saturday’s Cox Plate as follows:

1st choice.AROD

just ahead of

2nd choice.HIGHLAND REEL

decent gap to

3rd choice.GAILO CHOP

Read the evidence below in my extensive report as to why I’ve ranked them as such;

*FORM NOTE: The Dante is the major lead up race to England’s most famous and prestigious race the Epsom Derby. Always contested by some of the cream of every 3yo season. Winner of the race The Grey Gatsby would subsequently run skip the Epsom Derby to run in the Gr1 French Derby which he dominated to win by 3L, later in that same preparation he was a narrow 2nd to Epsom Derby winner- Australia in the Gr1 Juddmonte International a prestigious WFA race open to all 3yo+, before winning the Irish Champion Stakes also at Gr1 level. SO FOR AROD TO RUN THE GREY GATSBY TO 0.75L BEFORE HE EMBARKED ON A PREP THAT YIELDED 2X GR1 WINS & A GR1 2ND SAYS THE FORM IS VERY STRONG!!!

FORM NOTE: French grey champion, Solow is rated in the top 5 horses currently on the planet. He’s a 5 time Gr1 winner- The Dubai Turf, Prix D’Isphahan, Queen Anne Stakes (Royal Ascot beating worlds #2 ranked horse Able Friend), Sussex Stakes, QE II Stakes. His win over Arod was the 4th Gr1 win he’d had in a row so he was in rarefied form, and out of those 4 wins Arod margin wise, got closer than any horse he beat in those 4 races! THIS FORM IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD OF IT’S KIND. SUGGESTS AROD COULD WIN ANY RACE FROM 1600M TO 2000M IN THE WORLD ON HIS DAY.

SUMMARY OF AROD’S FORM;

He’s got close to horses such as Australia & Solow amongst others that would be odds on in a Cox Plate of any year, they weren’t / aren’t just the best of their time but the best for many years in those parts! He’s twice won over 2018m and has a narrow 2nd to The Grey Gatsby over 2092m, which is a terribly strong form line. He’s no query at the distance, he’s an on-pacer who’ll make his own luck & the form around his is world standard. If he produces his best they’ll have to be good to beat him!!!!

*FORM NOTE: This is the best form line we can get through Australian racing for Gailo chop. In this USA Gr1, Gailo Chop was 4th. 2014 Cox Plate winner was 2nd in the race beaten a neck, that was some 4L in front of Gailo Chop. 2015 Gr1 Doomben Cup winner Pornichet who was trained by Gai for this run, lead pulled it’s head off and folded to compound and finish 9th, 19L off the winner and 15L off Gailo Chop, but obviously the horse is a lot better than that, so it’s little guide. 4L off Adelaide says he’s pretty handy though.

*FORM NOTE: We get a direct line through Criterion here who he rematches again on Saturday in the Cox Plate. Here Gailo Chop lead before dropping out to be beaten 6L, while Criterion was beaten 4L. So Gailo Chop was 2L off at the finish of Criterion after leading up. It’s probably the most definitive look at the form of Gailo Chop as he’d need to improve 2L to catch Criterion and hope at the same time that horse hasn’t improved. Don’t see him making the necessary progression.

LA COUPE DE MAISONS-LAFFITTE (G3) 2000m – Gailo Chop 1st

SUMMARY OF GAILO CHOP’S FORM

The easiest to assess of the international runners through his run in the Prince of Wales when 2L off the 2nd fav for the Cox Plate Criterion, dropping out after a pretty soft time in front. Also has form through Adelaide in the 2014 Belmont Derby when he was 4L off the 2014 Cox Plate winner, this was Adelaide’s final lead up too the Cox Plate so he was in pretty handy nick at the time. Neither of those efforts will win the race on Saturday in my opinion. The French form looks dynamite, but it’s very hard to get a line on, and in reality might not be as strong as it reads on paper. Run behind Solow was good, but Solow cantered past him with plenty left in store and still won easily. Compare that too Arod’s run behind Solow, where Arod really made the super-star French grey sweat it out and dig deep into his locker to overcome him. Gailo Chop has done enough to be competitive but I’d doubt he’s the winner unless he improves sharply.

The same as Adelaide last year, Highland Reel is only a 3yo by his native northern hemisphere breeding time. But in Australia he’s categorised as a 4 year old having been foaled well before our local 3yo’s but months after our 4yo’s. So he doesn’t get the big weight relief our local 3yo’s do.

SUMMARY OF HIGHLAND REEL’S FORM

Has avoided the best horses around in Europe at 3 in the most part asides from two runs in the Irish Derby & Irish Champion where he was safely held both times. Although 4L off Golden Horn over 2011M maybe good enough to win a Cox Plate as Golden Horn is rated as the world’s best horse this year along, winning the Arc leading all the way and only tasting defeat once when finishing runner up, in his 8 starts, he’s equal with USA Triple Crown Winner American Pharaoh. Runs a strong 2040M that’s without doubt, does look very one-paced though if there’s a knock. But if he runs up to last start he’ll be in the mix, 4L is a pretty sizeable margin but as stated it was behind the world’s best. Poorly in at weights is a knock. When comparing him to Adelaide, their form is very much similar. Adelaide didn’t race the best often but was held when he did and he won the Gr1 Arlington race. Can definitely win, but I prefer Arod from an international perspective, not by far though.

O’Brien Melbourne Cup hope Bondi Beach handed St Leger by stewards

The ultimate result of the St Leger at Doncaster will be decided at an appeal hearing in the basement of the British Horseracing Authority’s offices in Holborn after a dramatic renewal of the world’s oldest Classic. Simple Verse, the only filly in the race, was first past the post, a head in front of Bondi Beach, but the placings were then reversed in the stewards’ room after the panel decided that Simple Verse had caused sufficient interference to Bondi Beach in two separate incidents in the home straight to affect the outcome.

The announcement that Simple Verse, at 8-1, had been disqualified and placed behind the 2-1 joint-favourite Bondi Beach caused widespread surprise. British stewards are well known for their reluctance to amend results and work to a set of rules that tend to place the benefit of any doubt very much with the first horse over the line.

Bondi Beach had been carried across the course by Storm The Stars when narrowly beaten in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York on his previous run – but on that occasion the officials left the result unchanged.

For the connections of Simple Verse, whose owner, Sheikh Fahad al-Thani, had paid a £50,000 supplementary fee on Monday to add her to the race, there was profound shock and bitter disappointment. Ralph Beckett, her trainer, had high-fived his way back to the winner’s enclosure while Andrea Atzeni, her jockey, was confident before the inquiry that she would keep the race.

The stewards’ decision seems certain to result in an appeal to the BHA, which would probably be heard on Thursday.

“I’m astonished, apart from anything else,” Beckett said. “There’s no consistency in the rules. We saw Stuart Williams’s horse Suzi’s Connoisseur pinned against the rail on the straight track at Ascot and Joe Fanning had to stand up in the irons and was beaten half a length but didn’t get the race.

“We lose the race when clearly both horses leaned on each other. Can you say it was entirely her fault? It’s absolutely certain we will appeal.”

Colm O’Donoghue, the rider of Bondi Beach, insisted that he had not had a fair chance to win. “It’s racing, we all want a fair shot at it,” said O’Donoghue, who was riding Aidan O’Brien’s fifth winner of the Doncaster Classic. “I had time [after the first bump] to go and get him [Atzeni], but again I got impeded. My momentum was stopped. All I know is I tried to have a fair shot at it. I got impeded and the rules have made the decision.”

Paul Barton, the stipendiary steward at Town Moor, said the officials had applied the rules in the same way as for any other race. “We first asked whether there was interference and who caused it,” he said. “In this case, we found two incidents of interference, one at about the two-furlong marker and another at about the half-furlong marker.

“We considered that both were caused by the winner and then we had to decide whether the winner had improved its placing because of the interference it caused. We didn’t consider that one individual incident had improved the placing, but the combination of the two, in our opinion, we considered it had improved the placing and therefore we reversed them.

“The incident at the two-furlong marker was a pretty hefty knock to the second, it knocked him right off his stride. The one at the half-furlong marker was not as substantial as the first but it was enough to knock him off his stride and cause him to lose ground and momentum. He was only beaten a head and was still trying to regain the ground lost.”

At Leopardstown, O’Brien said: “It was messy down the straight,” he said. “He was unlucky at York and he got two proper bumps that day and got brought right across the track. That’s the way it goes, some days it falls for you and some days it doesn’t.”

Emotionless, a son of Shamardal with just an easy maiden win behind him, made a flawless step up to Group Two company in the Champagne Stakes and is the new favourite for the 2,000 Guineas with most bookmakers at a best price of 8-1.

Charlie Appleby’s colt pulled alongside the leader Ibn Malik with a quarter of a mile to run, but William Buick had so much horse underneath him that he took a pull and did not ease into the lead until the furlong pole. Emotionless then powered clear to win by three-and-a-half lengths, with another seven lengths back to Palawan in third.

“He has an immense amount of talent,” Appleby said, “and the fact that he is still able to show it while he’s still learning is very good.

“He’s shown that he can act on easier ground, which is a bit of a relief as these are the conditions he’ll get heading into the autumn. He is in the Dewhurst and the Racing Post Trophy [over a mile] back here, but he has so much pace that we’ll stick to the seven-furlong route at Newmarket.

“It’s nice to have an exciting horse on our hands and that is potentially what he looks like.”

2015 MELBOURNE CUP: PROTECTIONIST TOPWEIGHT FOR REPEAT CUP WIN FEAT. FULL LIST OF WEIGHTS

Tuesday 15 September, 2015

By Craig Brennan – AAP

Comic Court was the first association 12-time Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Bart Cummings had with the famous race.

Protectionist was dominant winning the 2014 Melbourne Cup

Trained by Cummings’ father Jim, in 1950 Comic Court was also the last original topweight to win the handicap race.

That’s the task in front of Protectionist and English stayer Snow Sky if they are to win this year’s $6.2 million race on November 3 with their topweight of 58kg.

“There have been 22 original topweights contest the Melbourne Cup since Comic Court’s win in 1950 and none have placed,” Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter said.

Now trained by Kris Lees, Protectionist won the Cup last year for German trainer Andreas Wohler, carrying 56.5kg and will be striving to join Makybe Diva (2003,04,05), Think Big (1974,75), Rain Lover (1968,69), Peter Pan (1932, 34) and Archer (1861,62) as the only multiple winners of the race.

Snow Sky is the highest-rated runner having won the Hardwicke Stakes during the Royal Ascot meeting in June.

Irish St Leger winner Order Of St George is one of four Aidan O’Brien horses nominated, with Carpenter rating him the equal of the topweights.

“The 54kg I have allotted him as a northern hemisphere three-year-old is the same as 58kg for an older horse with both being 1.5kg below the weight-for-age benchmark,” Carpenter said.

Stablemates, English St Leger first and third, Bondi Beach and Fields Of Athenry, have 52.5kg and 51kg respectively while Ascot Gold Cup runner-up Kingfisher has 53kg.

The ATC Australian Derby and Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Criterion, is the highest-rated of the Australian-trained stayers with 57.5kg.

Three-time Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux is in quarantine in preparation for a fifth attempt at the Cup.

3 time Melbourne Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux

Red Cadeaux carried 57kg when runner-up to Protectionist last year and drops to 55kg this time, the same weight as stablemate and Ascot Gold Cup winner, Trip To Paris.

Japanese stayers, Fame Game (57kg) and Hokko Brave (55.5kg) will be attempting the one-two finish of compatriots Delta Blues and Pop Rock in 2006.

They are due to arrive in Australia on Saturday.

New Zealand and ATC Australian Derby winner Mongolian Khan is the highest-rated four-year-old with 55kg ahead of Victoria Derby winner Preferment with 53.5kg.

Last season’s ATC Australian Oaks winner Gust Of Wind and VRC Oaks winner Set Square have 51kg.

Precedence, the last runner for Cummings in the Cup before his death last month, has 52kg, and will need to win a ballot-free race to guarantee a fifth start in the race.

Melbourne Cup 2015: Old warriors head entries for special cup

This year’s $6.2 million Melbourne Cup is already shaping as a promoter’s dream with two brave 10-year-olds heading the entries for Australia’s most important horse race with both managing to inject more emotion and intrigue than has been seen in years.

And Bart Cummings, the man who won 12 cups will be a part of the race in spirit. His veteran stayer Precedence, who will be making his fifth attempt to win the cup, is set to compete with J.B. Cummings permitted to stay in the training partnership with his grandson James.

Cummings passed away on Sunday aged 87, not only ending an unforgettable training career but also his partnership with James.

However that day, chief steward Terrey Bailey said he would allow Bart Cummings’ name to remain on Precedence, a move rarely granted.

“And so it should be, he owned the race and if Precedence makes it, it would be fitting,” Bailey said.

The other runner who will potentially race as a 10-year-old, Red Cadeaux, will be making his fifth trip to Australia from England after achieving a remarkable three seconds in four starts in the race that stops the nation.

“It’s a wonderful blend to have the J.B. Cummings influence still very much amongst us, yet we have this brave stayer who’s also on the cusp of writing more Melbourne Cup records coming back to try again,” Racing Victoria’s international talent scout Leigh Jordon​ said.

Jordon believes the 31 overseas entries are a vital sign that the racing world now recognises that to win a Melbourne Cup, a very special stayer is required.

While many countries have enjoyed Melbourne Cup success, England is the one nation yet to taste November success at Flemington.

“I don’t think in all the years we’ve been bringing horses to Australia, have I ever seen a more impressive list of major race winners or place getters that have signalled their intent to come to Australia,” Jordon said.

Jordon pointed out that not only would Red Cadeau attempt to take the Melbourne Cup home to Britain, his trainer, Ed Dunlop would bring the veteran’s stablemate Trip To Paris on the plane as well. Trip To Paris is a winner of the Royal Ascot Gold Cup and is just one of a number of coups the VRC could achieve by Cup Day.

As well, Aidan O’Brien seems certain to return to Australia after a number of years and has entered four runners in the Cup, one four-year-old and three three-year-olds.

It’s not the first time the master European trainer has brought a three-year-old to Australia, as in 2007 his young stayer Mahler finished a bold third in the Cup.

Smart stayer King Fisher was an entry when they closed on Monday as well his three-year-olds Order Of St George, Field Of Athenry and Bondi Beach. All three will start in the English St Ledger in mid-September and they are all under 8-1 to win the race.

This year the entries have polarised somewhat with a sizeable number of starters from England.

The world’s greatest jumping trainer Willie Mullins has Goodwood Cup winner Big Orange and Quest For More booked to start in the Cup.

Again it is going to be difficult to force a start into the 24-strong field and weight, and plenty of it, will be the major dimension in making the field.

Japan, the home of some of the world’s toughest stayers, will likely be represented by Fame Game, who finished a valiant second in Japan’s equivalent of the Melbourne Cup, the Tenno Sho over 3200 metres in April this year.

Fame Game will be joined by Hokko Brave.

The all-conquering Godolphin Outfit already has two main players this spring in Contributer and Hartnell and they will be joined by five Melbourne Cup hopefuls, including high-class stayer Sky Hunter.

Bumper entries for Melbourne Cup inc. 31 Top Shelf Internationals – 140 in total

crownbet 200:400 #2

Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter has labelled the quality of this year’s international Melbourne Cup entries among the best ever.

When nominations closed for ‘the race that stops a nation’, there were 140 horses in with a chance to win the feature, including 31 internationals.

Last year’s Melbourne Cup trifecta of Protectionist, Red Cadeaux and Who Shot Thebarman are all back again, while Precedence is also trying for another crack at the Group 1.

cup-legend-2015-400x250

Fan favourites Red Cadeaux and Precendence are trying to run in the Melbourne Cup for a fifth time, and will create history if they can salute, becoming the oldest horses to win the race.

Precedence, who is one of five entries for 27-year-old James Cummings, will be out to honour his late Hall of Fame co-trainer Bart Cummings, who prepared him for starts in the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 Melbourne Cups, his most recent appearance delivering a career-best sixth placing.

Carpenter was delighted with the quality of horses targeting the Cup.

“The Emirates Melbourne Cup is the world’s premier staying race and the quality of the local and international entries for this year’s race is outstanding,” Carpenter said.

“The depth amongst the international contingent is exceptional, with the Ascot Gold Cup quinella, Hardwicke Stakes winner, Goodwood Cup trifecta, Lonsdale Cup winner and a pair of Japan’s elite stayers amongst 31 international entries.

“It is most pleasing to see such a strong book of entries from Aidan O’Brien who has not had a Melbourne Cup runner since 2008 and whom enjoyed breakthrough success in Melbourne last Spring Racing Carnival winning the Cox Plate with Adelaide.

“Following the passing of the ‘Cups King’ Bart Cummings this week there will naturally be plenty of people hoping that Precedence can secure his place in a fifth Melbourne Cup and it would be most fitting if he could.

“With crowd favourite Red Cadeaux also set to return for a fifth appearance and last year’s brilliant winner Protectionist among the entries, the scene is set for yet another brilliant and memorable renewal of the Emirates Melbourne Cup.”

CROWN REWARDS

Other highlights among the nominations include:

• Four entrants from famed Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien in Ascot Gold Cup runner-up Kingfisher, Irish St Leger Trial Stakes winner Order Of St George, Curragh Cup winner Bondi Beach and Ballyroan Stakes winner Fields Of Athenry. O’Brien’s last runners were in 2008;

• Two entries from fellow Irishman and dual Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Dermot Weld in Manalapan and Zafayan. Weld’s last runner was Galileo’s Choice in 2012;

• The return of five-time Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Lee Freedman, who has two entries including high profile German import Our Ivanhowe, with his brother and co-trainer Anthony. This year marks the 10th anniversary since the Freedman-trained Makybe Diva won an historic third Melbourne Cup and 20 years since the Freedman-trained Doriemus won the 1995 edition;

• Two Japanese entries, the highly-rated pair Fame Game and Hokko Brave, who are the first internationals scheduled to arrive in Melbourne on Saturday, 19 September;

• This year’s victors of high profile European staying races in Hardwicke Stakes winner Snow Sky, Lonsdale Cup winner Max Dynamite and Goodwood Cup winner Big Orange;

• A renewed assault from New Zealand with the Murray Baker-trained Australian and New Zealand Derby winner Mongolian Khan striving to become the first NZ-trained winner since Ethereal in 2001; and

• A pair of six-year-old mares with an intrinsic link to the Cup in La Amistad – the daughter of Makybe Diva – and Let’s Make Adeal – the granddaughter of the 1991 Bart Cummings-trained winner Let’s Elope.

VRC chief executive Simon Love was pleased with the depth and strength of nominations.

“There are the big international names of Sir Michael Stoute, Dermot Weld, Aiden O’Brien, Ed Dunlop and Godolphin amongst the entries. And the cream of our local stayers all feature with our best trainers looking to keep this year’s Emirates Melbourne Cup in Australia,” Love said.

“It is particularly encouraging to attract a horse of the quality Snow Sky, heralding Juddmonte’s first-ever runner for the Emirates Melbourne Cup.

“For sentimentalists it will be hard to go past the five nominations for Bart and James Cummings, including their old warhorse Precedence.”

Weights for the Emirates Melbourne Cup will be released on Tuesday, September 15, with first acceptances taken at 12 noon (AEST) on Tuesday, October 6. That will give a clearer picture of how the final 24 horse field will start to take shape.
