Dashing Willoughby

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.

Dashing Willoughby came to Australia with plenty of admirers, but he was very ordinary in the Caulfield Cup, finished a long last. Michael Walker would be feeling pretty ill right about now, after electing to jump of Prince Of Arran to ride Dashing Willoughby this Spring. He will likely lead from barrier 19 or at least be right thereabouts in the run, but he would need to improve drastically. The big track and 3200m should suit, as he has a win over 2018 Melbourne Cup winner, Cross Counter at this distance three starts ago.


Can Dashing Willoughby win The Cup?

Not unless he improves 30 lengths. He’s $126 for a reason.
