Right You Are has been ticking over nicely for the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace stable, but it does look like the most tested of their five runners in this year’s Melbourne Cup.
The seven-year-old hasn’t been disgraced chasing home Group 1 company throughout the preparation, but with a tricky barrier to overcome and the 3200m a total unknown. Let’s see if we can make a case for Right You Are in this year’s Melbourne Cup.
When will Right You Are run in the Melbourne Cup
The Melbourne Cup will be run on the first Tuesday in November at Flemington in front of a sold out crowd.
The one thing that hasn’t changed about the 2023 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 $8.41 million.

Can Right You Are win the 2023 Melbourne Cup?
Right You Are has been going along ok this campaign, without ever really threatening. He was one of the best of the pace setters in a keenly contested Caulfield Cup, finishing fifth, beaten 4.15 lengths. He will be in the leading division once again on Tuesday, but we have doubts about whether he can see out 3200m and will be outclassed in this.
