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.

Persan has been flying presently, finishing in the quinella in nine of his last ten starts, which has included four wins at Flemington. The Maher and Eustace team look to have worked this bloke out, keeping him at the staying trips. He was very strong late over 2500m in the Bart Cummings, doing enough to hold out Sound and Steel Prince, who have both franked that form. He drops 4kg off that win, and has been able to have a soft time coming into the Cup. Barrier 20 is a concern, but we think Micky Dee will come over from the gate and look to settle in the first half a dozen.

Can Persan win The Cup?

His Flemington form suggests he is a huge chance in this, but we aren’t sure he has beaten all that much with the exemption of his latest win.
