Sans Frontieres On Target For A Jump In The 2010 Melbourne Cup

July 15th, 2010

After an impressive stint at Newmarket’s July Festival last week, coming away with a win in the Group 2 Princess of Wales’s Stakes (2,414m), Sans Frontieres is on target for an explosive run in the 2010 Melbourne Cup field.

The four-year-old saw Redwood to second spot in the Stakes, and his performance has led successful trainer Jeremy Noseda to plot preparations for the upcoming 150th Melbourne Cup anniversary on the 2nd of November.

Sans Frontieres is on target for an explosive run in the 2010 Melbourne Cup field.

It was a surprise win for the colt, who has failed to live up to his early career expectations, but with Tom Queally aboard, he looked every inch the champion runner.

Perhaps a go at the world-renowned Group One Irish St.Leger (2,816m) on the 11th of September will give the sometimes blunt Noseda a better idea as to the youngster’s reliability to perform.

Winning a share in the 2010 Melbourne Cup prizemoney would certainly give the trainer some satisfaction, as the former hoop has had no qualms vocalising his issues with Australian runners being paid to head to England.

A son of Galileo who has sired over 11 Group one winners around the world, Sans Frontieres boasts both speed and strength and  is a prime candidate for punters looking for early 2010 Melbourne Cup betting odds, so keep an eye on his upcoming campaign.

Will Sans Frontieres be listed as another legendary Melbourne Cup winner, or will the colt fall prey to other early favourites such as Faint Perfume – the winner of the Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes (2000m)? It’s up to you to decide!
