The stable have said they want to come back to defend the title and with that being the case, Rekindling is at the top of the all in market for the Melbourne Cup (3200m).
He scored a famous win on the first Tuesday in November last year and is being set again for the race. He is a clear top pick at this stage, sitting at $19, ahead of Caulfield Cup favourite Kings Will Dream at $26, who has a real liking for Flemington.
If you were looking at an early speck, the two runners to take note of are Ace High at $41 and Youngstar at $61. Ace High is the best three year old stayer Australia has at the moment and the Flemington two miles will be perfect. Youngstar was indeed the start of the Brisbane Winter Carnival and she seems a real stayer, so 3200m will be ideal.
