Steel Prince

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.

The Geelong Cup winner has been racing terrifically this campaign and looks ready to go over 3200m. The seven-year-old was only a length off Orderofthegarter in the Naturalism, before running a close third in the Bart Cummings behind Persan. Geelong Cup winners have a strong record in this race, with two horses completing the double in the last ten years. William Pike, who is flying of late, hops aboard and will likely snag back from barrier 21. He did finish ninth in this race last year, but rises 1kg from that run.


Can Steel Prince win The Cup?

The form he is in suggests he can, and Geelong Cup winners do generally go well, but we aren’t convinced he is at this level. The barrier makes it hard too.
