Sir Dragonet is vying for favouritism in Tuesday's Melbourne Cup

Cox Plate winner Sir Dragonet is on track to complete a rare feature race double in Tuesday’s $8m Melbourne Cup.

Sir Dragonet spent Friday afternoon at Sandown where he had a gallop over 1400m ahead of the 2020 Melbourne Cup on Tuesday and trainer Ciaron Maher could not have been happier with his efforts.

“We just brought him out, he just at off a work mate and he did a solid seven-furlong gallop,” Maher told

“The aim of today was to be his strongest piece of work in between the Cox  Plateand the Melbourne Cup. He will do another piece of work on Sunday, but it will just be a bridle gallop.

“James Winks rode him, he was very happy, it was very strong work to the eye. He has pulled up really well.

“I couldn’t be happier at this time.”

Sir Dragonet has continued to shorten in Melbourne Cup betting since his Cox Plate win and is now the equal $7 favourite with Tiger Moth.

There have only six winners of the Cox Plate-Melbourne Cup double – Nightmarch (1929), Phar Lap (1930), Rising Fast (1954), Saintly (1996) and Makybe Diva (2005).
