Constantinople 13/2

With 24 runners set to go to post for the Group One feature over in Australia we have decided to look into the race and we have found three horses that will not be far away.

The first we want to discuss is the current favourite Constantinople for his new yard after previously being with the master Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien.

This three year old sets the form standard having ran credibly in all of his races this season having been on the track six times placing in all of them and winning one event.

At the big flat meetings in England he was second at Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood and York's Ebor meeting in Group and Handicap contests.

Since his change of stables and move to Australia he has only raced once and finished a smart Fourth in the Caulfield Cup staying on brilliantly in the final furlong and was one of the big horses to take out of the race.

He looks a really smart three year old that is drawn to have a big chance for his new connections.

Finche 8/1

Another lively runner that we fancy is Finche for master Aussie trainer Chris Waller who trained Winx throughout her career so he has a clear understanding of how to win big races.

This five year old finished fourth in the Melbourne Cup last season running a superb race from a wide draw and stays the same weight for this years renewal where the previous horses that beat him are much heavier.

The Khalid Abdullah owned gelding also recently ran in the Caulfield Cup and finished solid fifth that should set him up perfectly for a big run in this seasons Group One.

Another bonus for this son of Frankel is that he has managed to land last years winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy which is only a positive.

Mirage Dancer 33/1

Former Sir Michael Stoute trained Mirage Dancer is another British exploit that has move over to Australia permanently and this son of Frankel has had a smart career.

Most of the time this horse has ran over a shorter trip of 1 mile 4 furlongs but he looks as if the step up in trip will help him and he should last it out.

During his career he has ran to a high standard in many Handicap, Listed and Group contests that made him an attractive buy to move down under.

He is a big price of 33/1 which looks over pried considering he enters the contest off the back of a superb third in the Caulfield Cup which is a great prep run for the Group One outing.
