Vow and Declare winning Melbourne Cup 2019

SIR DRAGONET Import which was strong at the end in his Cox Plate victory and he was fourth in the Group I St Leger at Doncaster over 2922m so happy to give him a tick at the 3200m. Looks well treated at the weights with 55.5kg and has to be a key player. RUSSIAN CAMELOT Put his name up in lights with an emphatic win in the South Australian Derby as a three-year-old and nothing wrong with his form this preparation. Had his colours lowered at Caulfield but was the best of the locals in the Cox Plate when third. Looking for the step up in trip and is right in play. VERRY ELLEEGANT Terrific mare racing in grand form, the winner of six Group I’s and is chasing the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups double. Although some rain would enhances her chances she is proven on good ground with wins in the Turnbull Stakes and Caulfield Cup last two. Running out a strong two mile looks the only query. FINCHE Was close up in the 2019 Caulfield and Melbourne Cups raising expectations for 2020 and has done nothing wrong in three runs this preparation including a Caulfield Cup fifth last start when always wide. This is no doubt his target race and will peak on the day. Right in play.
