Tralee Rose is a stayer on the way up and coming off a win in the Geelong Cup is set to go around as one of Incentivise’s main dangers in the Melbourne Cup. The Geelong Cup has quickly become a strong form reference for the race that stops the nation over the past couple of years with the likes of Prince of Arran using it as their final run into a Melbourne Cup. She has two wins and two placings from four starts at Flemington showing that the long straight suits her want to build through the gears and hit the line with intent.
When will Tralee Rose 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.

Can Tralee Rose win The Cup?
If there is a runner in this year’s Melbourne Cup with untapped potential, then it is the Symon Wilde-trained Tralee Rose. Despite Incentivise being a dominant favourite, Tralee Rose could be the one to cause an upset. She put the writing on the wall during her summer/autumn campaign and with a win in the Geelong Cup which has traditionally become a strong form reference race last time out, Tralee Rose is primed for a big run in the Melbourne Cup.
