Can Master Of Wine win the 2021 Melbourne Cup?

Master Of Wine has long been known as a Group 1 standard of horse, however in 10 starts at the level he is yet to run a placing and is a frustrating runner to follow in a betting sense. He was well beaten last time out in the Caulfield Cup, but his start prior in The Bart Cummings when finishing in third-place on the heels of Grand Promenade and Tralee Rose suggests he is capable of a big run in the 2021 Melbourne Cup. He is in the right stable with the Hawkes family and at a big price could be a trifecta/first four player.

When will Master Of Wine 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.

The 2021 Melbourne Cup will be Master Of Wine’s first start in the great race.

Can Master Of Wine win The Cup?

Master Of Wine is one at a big price who could be a wide trifecta/first four chance.
