Puissance De Lune Cup Campaign In Doubt

Monday, 28th October 2013

Leading Melbourne Cup fancy Puissance De Lune is in danger of missing the race after pulling up lame in Saturday's Cox Plate, reports racingnetwork.com.au. The 6YO grey entire was found to be lame in his off foreleg when finishing more than 10 lengths behind 3YO colt Shamus Award. Trainer Darren Weir said he was unsure if the Melbourne Cup was still a viable option for Puissance De Lune. "He's a bit sore, but not too bad," Weir said. "But I don't know if we'll be pushing on. We will see."
