Prince Of Arran will be lining up for his third attempt at winning the Melbourne Cup having placed third and second at his last two attempts he will be looking to go one better this year.
The English stayer was an eye catcher in the Caulfield Cup coming from the back of the field to run fourth behind Verry Elleegant, Anthony Van Dyck and The Chosen One all of which he will meet again on Tuesday and bookmakers think he is one of the horses to beat installing him at $11 after drawing the inside barrier in the race.

Aled Beech the apprentice Jockey to Charlie Fellowes who is riding Prince Of Arran in his work said the horse is feeling good heading into the $8m event with the inside barrier allowing Jamie Kah who will ride him in the Cup plenty of options.
“Yesterday he had a breeze, he felt good. Just asked him to stretch along the last two furlongs he rode out nicely. Felt good this morning.”
“Happy enough. It’s much better than drawing out wide like we have the previous few years. It just gives Jamie more options and makes her life easier.”
“He’s feeling great in himself. What he feels like at home, he feels even better here.
