Future Score from the Matt Cumani yard is set to take the massive rise in grade when he steps out in the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November. He has seemingly been out of his grade in races like the Naturalism Stakes, Herbert Power Stakes and Moonee Valley Gold Cup this campaign. Future Score is set to go around as one of the biggest priced runners in Melbourne Cup history.
When will Future Score 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.
