Selino was an impressive winner of the Sydney Cup earlier this year and is capable of springing a surprise on any given day. However, the Melbourne Cup is a completely different beast and the Chris Waller-trained son of Champs Elysees will need to overturn a last start 11.75-length defeat to Incentivise in the Caulfield Cup. You cannot rule out any Waller runner completely in Group 1 events, but this may be one of his biggest achievements if Selino can somehow win the Melbourne Cup.
When will Selino 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.
