Can More Felons win the 2023 Melbourne Cup?

More Felons put in an eye-catching run when finishing fifth in the Geelong Cup when beaten half a length. He gave his rivals a massive start on that, his Australian debut, so with the run under his belt, he is sure to improve. Jamie Kah is in good form now after riding a double on VRC Derby Day and with 50.5kg on his back, More Felons can run a bottler on Tuesday. From barrier 24, More Felons will settle at the rear of the field, but much like stablemate Sheraz, is a chance of finishing in the top 10 and potentially push for higher honours with even luck.
