39 Remain In Melb Cup At 3rd Acceptances
After yesterday's deadline for 3rd declarations, 39 horses remain in contention for the Gr1 Melbourne Cup (3200m at Flemington on Tuesday November 4). Importantly last week's Geelong Cup winner Bauer is still not guaranteed a start, having jumped from 32nd to 25th in the order-of-entry. Importantly Baughurst, Book Of Kells, Chiefcomingfirst, Dandaad, Largo Lad, Magic Instinct, Moatize, Get Up Jude & Newport are all nominated for Saturday's Saab Quality & can potentially move past Bauer & make the Melbourne Cup field (the winner of the Saab is automatically exempt from any Melbourne Cup ballot).
