Unbeaten UK Mare Turbo Linn Out Of Melb Cup

Thursday, 6th September 2007

British trainer Alan Swinbank has ruled his unbeaten 4YO mare Turbo Linn (Turbo Speed-Linns Heir, by Leading Counsel) out of this year's Gr1 Melbourne Cup. Turbo Linn has won all her 8 starts (including the Gr3 Lancashire Oaks) & was allotted 51.5kg when Melbourne Cup weights were released this week. However Swinbank told sportinglife.co.uk: "Maybe we'll go for it next year. You would not get a strong enough jockey off that weight. I put her in to let the handicapper have a look at her, but I wouldn't want to go for it at this stage of her career."
