The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Cismontane has taken the last spot in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup after winning today’s Lexus Stakes at Flemington.
Cismontane was sent out a $15 chance after opening as low as $6 in some markets but he made every post a winner leading throughout and hanging on to win today’s Lexus Stakes which gives the winner a ballot exempt entry into the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday.
Cismontane was a $201 chance in Melbourne Cup markets before today’s win but has shortened into $41 following his win.
