Notes: This guy was second behind Francis of Assissi in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes after the Melbourne Cup. Claimed on the line third-up in the Mornington Cup over 2400m. In 2016 he was an emergency for the Caulfield Cup but made the field to finish eighth, not enough to get into the Melbourne Cup field.

His prep has been hampered by wide barriers and some overracing, and finally put it together to narrowly win the Geelong Cup.

He might get a small penalty from that but if it’s not enough (and probably won’t be) he will go into the Lexus to win it, get in, and be rock hard fit for the Melbourne Cup and get Michael Moroney’s second Cup win after Brew.
