Trainer Matt Cumani is confident that Grey Lion will take improvement into his second campaign appearance in the Group 1 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington today, but the talented import has continued to drift in 2016 Melbourne Cup betting markets and is now rated a $51 chance with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Grey Lion made his Australian debut in the Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) on October 19th and stamped himself as a legitimate Cup contender when running on well for second behind Qewy with third placegetter Oceaongrapher going on to score an impressive win in the in the Lexus Stakes last Saturday.

Cumani has been thrilled with the way that the Galileo entire has taken to life at this Ballarat base, but the northern hemisphere four-year-old is yet to receive much interest in Melbourne Cup betting markets with online bookmaker Ladbrokes, and has drifted to $34 odds.

“It’s unbelievable, isn’t it?” Cumani said of saddling his first Melbourne Cup runner.

“It’s great to be here and to have this in my first year is unbelievable and fantastic, and a huge thanks has to go out to the owners and to my family really.

“It’s a little bit wider than we’d hoped (barrier 16) but I think we’ve got good horses either side, and good pace.

“We’ve got Qewy on our inside and Curren Mirotic on our outside, so it could have been a lot worse.

“I think it’s all about having options. The further out you are, the easier it is to see where you’re going.

“It’s going to be up to Bossy now to try and find his route and find where he wants to settle, and then go for home when the time’s right.

“He’s come on a hell of a lot since he’s been here and really flourished. I don’t know if it’s the climate, or the Aussies or the feed, but he’s grown another leg and I hope we can keep him right all the way to the Cup day.”

Grey Lion began his career in France, under the guidance of prominent trainer Andre Fabre and has posted a credible four wins and as many minors through only twelve career starts.

Resuming this year for a smart win in the Prix De Louviers (2500m) on March 4th, Grey Lion failed to fire or beat a runner home in the Prix De La Porte De Madrid (2400m) three weeks later, but responded well for third in the Group 3 Prix D’Hedouville (2400m) most notably on May 8th.

Grey Lion will carry only 52kgs in the Melbourne Cup and will be partnered by veteran hoop Glen Boss.

    this sounds so interesting. I have a horrible short term memory. I can remember three or four numbers of a telephone number and then I have to look at it again to get the rest. The ideas you put forth here are fascinating. Sounds like a book to read and maybe I can train myself to not be so flaky with my bad short term memory…

    Oui Xelle. Le risque de faire naître des marchés fermés est assez fort. Pour l’instant, il a été d’ailleurs plutôt moteur, notamment autour des liseuses et de la lecture sur mobile. Je ne sais pas si l’adoption d’un standard de fait suffira à nous éloigner des sirènes des marchés fermés, qui paraissent si prometteuses : marchés rémunérateurs et sécurisés. A mon avis, le standard ne suffira pas… Mais vous avez raison d’être plus optimiste que je ne le suis.

    My first reaction to dredlocks is to think, "Holy Christ, how many months has it been since that guy washed his hair? What the fuck is living in there, anyway?"At the rat-brain level, dredlocks are in the same category as Charles Manson's haircut, such as it was. They scream "serial killer."Also, now that I've become familiar with the full extent of anti-gay violence in Jamaica (a place I'll never visit, that's for damn sure), dredlocks are symbolic to me of something else. The equivalent of white skinheads with a swastika tattoo.

    I don’t think any time is a good time. They tell you to punish your child when you find out what he did wrong, so this holds true with anything else. You confront when found out and it is one more thing for them to deal with. After all you are probably going through these bad times with him and having to deal with the infidelity.

    I’ve always been on the fence about marijuana. While I know it’s much more dangerous than most believe, I do have a problem with all the time, energy, money invested to crack (no pun intended) down on its usage. Cigarettes kill many more than marijuana but they’re still legal.

    Your ad ought to attract consideration! Despite the fact that this sounds apparent, unless your ad attracts attention you might be throwing your cash down the drain. By far the most compelling approach to have a “noticeable” ad should be to have an exciting and visually attractive headline. Should you be designing a large ad, imagine employing a subhead. This may deliver added details and may be longer than the headline.

    Thank you!! El Hub always buys these so-called “healthy” Pop Tarts from Trader Joes, and while they’re probably better for me, there’s nothing like the real thing. I need to stock up. I recently Tivo’d a few eps from the first season and they’re much less obnoxious than the recent ones. I have a feeling their 15 minutes will be up soon.
