Magic Circle To Place

The first horse we have to place in the RAB with Sky Bet is one of the English raiders trained by Ian Williams. Magic Circle has got a great chance in this race tomorrow with a lot of factors going in his favour.

The six year old come into this race in brilliant form with his two runs this season seeing him finish first in both. His first run of the year came in May where he went on to win the Chester Cup, beating 16 other good rivals.

From there he went on to take the Group 3 Henry II Stakes at Sandown in really good fashion. He goes well fresh, so the lay off will be no problem and he is in search of a hat trick for his owner the extravagant Marwan Koukash.

Marmelo To Place

The next horse to place in the RAB in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup at Flemington tomorrow morning is another English raider, this time for Hughie Morrison with Marmelo.

This five year old is a horse who comes into this race with some consistent and great form. He has raced four times this season in Listed and Group 2 company and has looked really comfortable in all of his races coming out with form figures of 2112.

His latest win came in the Group 2 Prix Maurice de Nieuil at Longchamp and from there, last time out he finished a strong second in another Group 2 in France, this time at Deauville. He has the form to go on and place in this race with seven places on offer with Sky Bet.

Finche To Place

The last horse in the Request A Bet is the first Australian horse in the bet and we have gone with the Chris Waller trained Finche to place in this Group 1.

This four year old is one of three horses for the Aussie trainer but it looks to be his best chance of a winner and comes into this race with a serious chance to upset the odds.

He has some good form runs of late and if building off those should be able to get in the top 7 at Flemington. His penulitmate start saw him go on and win the Group 3 Prix de Reux at Deauville, he then backed that up when last seen in the Geelong Cup where he finished a good third and a nice warm up for the big one tomorrow.
