Can Sir Lucan win the 2021 Melbourne Cup?

The four-year-old Sir Lucan will have his first race in Australian soil come Tuesday, November 2nd. Having eight starts for two wins, Glen Boss will have his work cut out to get the result that was worth flying him all the way from Ireland for. Starting with the online bookmakers at $21 and slowly drifting further out as the days get closer Sir Lucan will be out to prove the punters wrong.

When will Sir Lucan run in the Melbourne Cup?

The Melbourne Cup will be run on the first Tuesday in November despite all the COVID-19 chaos, but without the huge crowds that normally grace Flemington on Cup Day.

The one thing that hasn’t changed about the 2021 Melbourne Cup is the horses.

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

Melbourne Cup results for Sir Lucan

The 2021 Melbourne Cup will be Sir Lucan’s first start in the great race.

Can Sir Lucan win the 2021 Melbourne Cup ?

As we have seen from previous Melbourne Cups , anybody is able to win the Melbourne Cup with the right run and the right jockey on their back. With veteran Glen Boss being known for riding Makybe Diva to three consecutive Melbourne Cups from 2003 to 2005 and being given the set weight of 50kg for the race there will be every chance he can claim his fourth Melbourne Cup with Sir Lucan. With Sir Lucan’s current form and being his first proper race in Flemington and coming up against 23 other Melbourne Cup horses it will be a tough time for him to be finishing the race in first and punters seem to think the same opening at $21 odds with the online bookmakers and slowly drifting out as the hours go on.
