Can Port Guillaume win the 2021 Melbourne Cup?

Port Guillaume was acquired from France by Ben & JD Hayes in a bid to have him ready for a run in the Melbourne Cup, but he has failed to reach the heights he got to in his home country. He has a win over Gold Trip last year who was supposed to be a genuine Cox Plate andMelbourne Cup contender, but this five-year-old son of Le Havre has struggled to go on with the job in Australia. It is unlikely Port Guillaume gives the Hayes brothers their first Group 1 win as a training partnership.

When will Port Guillaume 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.

Melbourne Cup results for Port Guillaume

The 2021 Melbourne Cup will be Port Guillaume’s first start in the great race.

Can Port Guillaume win The Cup?

Port Guillaume is one of the rank outsiders in the 2021 Melbourne Cup, so a win would be a massive shock. He finished 10th to Incentivise in the Caulfield Cup and has struggled in all four of his starts in Australia this campaign. We expect to see Port Guillaume finish in the second-half of the field.
