Can Grand Promenade win the 2021 Melbourne Cup?

The rise of Grand Promenade into market contention for the 2021 Melbourne Cup has been overshadowed by the remarkable progression of Incentivise. Grand Promenade is live a chance of finishing in the top four of this year’s Melbourne Cup considering the lack of depth heading into the race. He claimed the golden ticket by winning The Bart Cummings at his last start, bringing his record to three wins in his past five races. While this is his first crack at Group 1 level, the booking of multiple Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy further strengthens his case.

When will Grand Promenade 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.
