Handles all conditions, he stays, he has change up speed, he is trained by a master, he’s a proven weight carrier and from all the vision seen with trackwork etc, he looks to be flying. It’s near impossible to say a horse is a good thing in the Melbourne Cup…but he could be a good thing.

Key Replay: Copper Horse Handicap (2816m), June 20 2023, Royal Ascot, Good Surface
This is the win that stamped him as a Melbourne Cup horse. Led throughout under a peach front running steer from Ryan Moore. What impressed me was his final 400m. The change up speed was very impressive and he won by a space with plenty in hand. The form out of this race has been solid with stablemate Absurde winning the Ebor.
