Group 1 winner at a mile and a half in the United States who came here in the spring of last year as an eight year old. It was hard to believe he could still be competitive, given he was well worn, but he showed some good form – a fourth in the Dato Tan Chin Nam remains his best effort in Australia.

He ran poorly in the Cranbourne Cup before finishing sixth in the Caulfield Cup and ninth in the Melbourne Cup. After a spell, he went to Dubai for their carnival but after a promising first up effort, he was beaten convincingly at his next three. He was once again promising first up here, but after he finished 11th in the Naturalism Stakes and second last in the Cranbourne Cup it was reasonable to think that Melbourne Cup aspirations would be abandoned.

But after an okay fifth in the Moonee Valley Cup last start, they decided to press on. I can’t blame the owners, given I would probably do the same if I was in their position. But on all exposed form, he has absolutely no chance and he is simply making up the numbers. In my eyes, he would have been the perfect candidate for balloting. Alas, he runs, keeping genuine chances like Brigantin out. Adding to his woes is the fact no nine year old has ever won the Cup. Not keen at all.
