Anthony Van Dyck

The Melbourne Cup will be run on the first Tuesday in November despite all the COVID19 chaos, but without the huge crowds that normally grace Flemington on Cup Day.

The one thing that hasn’t changed about the 2020 Melbourne Cup is the horses.

Once again The Cup has brought together and elite field of Melbourne Cup horses to contest the two mile race for $7.75 Million.

Anthony Van Dyck comes off a brilliant second in the Caulfield Cup in what was the perfect lead up run for this race. He drew the carpark on that occasion, so the low draw will be beneficial here and allow Bowman to settle a bit closer than he did a fortnight ago. He’s an Epsom Derby winner and beat one of the world’s best stayers in Stradivarius in his last start before coming to Australia. It would be an extraordinary feat if he were to win the Melbourne Cup with 58.5kg, with no horse since Makybe Diva in 2005 reigning supreme with 58kg or more. His best form is at 2400m and he is untested beyond that, so he has a task ahead of him, but his Caulfield Cup run was pleasing.


Can Anthony Van Dyck win The Cup?

He can if he brings his best. The big weight and where he gets to in the run, plus whether or not he can stay out the two miles are huge question marks, but on class alone, he has to be right in the mix.
