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.
Miami Bound (13)
4YO Bay Mare
Daniel Moor (51kg)
The Crown Oaks winner from last year looked as though she was completely shot, failing to deliver anything since her Group 1 victory, but she bounced back in a big way last week. She got the conditions to suit; 2500m and a Heavy track, but she really did bolt in, winning by 2.5L. Trained by Danny O’Brien, she too is an out and out stayer who loves Flemington and will eat up two miles. From gate 13, Daniel Moor will be in the first half we would imagine, and look for cover around the first bend. She might need it wetter though.
Can Miami Bound win The Cup?
Her win in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup was brilliant, but we have to question her opponents. 3200m at Flemington does suit but.
