Floating Artist

Floating Artist from the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace stable has arguably one of the better stayers in Victoria over the past couple of months, but has found himself in trouble during his runs in the Coongy Cup and then the Moonee Valley Gold Cup. He is in the best stable in terms of producing out and out stayers with Maher & Eustace and despite this being his first run at Group 1 level, he has shown with even luck that he can handle a field like this outside of Incentivise.

When will Floating Artist 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 Floating Artist

The 2021 Melbourne Cup will be Floating Artist’s first start in the great race.

Can Floating Artist win The Cup?

Floating Artist is a stayer on the rise in terms of the staying ranks in Australia. He arguably should have won his way into the Caulfield Cup by taking out the Coongy Cup, but was left flat footed at a crucial time. He then was a hard watch in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup last start when beaten a nose. He may not be up to the class of Incentivise, but a top-six result is certainly on the cards for Floating Artist.
