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.

    Fran: Ja, tidene har forandret seg kraftig nÃ¥r det gjelder akkurat det. Jeg tar det ikke engang nødvendigvis som dumme kommentarer – mer som en slags interessant bekreftelse pÃ¥ hvor vanlig barnehagebruk er blitt. Det er blitt en selvfølge, rett og slett. Folk mÃ¥ fÃ¥ velge de løsningene som fungerer best for dem, men jeg hÃ¥per at vi klarer Ã¥ fortsette Ã¥ være Ã¥pne for at andre ting passer andre mennesker.

And the subtle theming is great when you are dining with friends/family who are not-so-Disneyfied. I could eat a whole loaf of that bread with the salted butter – ah-mazing. The Grand Smash on the drinks menu is delish as well.

    Hi MC,It’s not that we were only indexing < 200 of these resources, it’s that < 200 of their owners were submitting Sitemaps using the OAI protocol. It’s possible that the other 750+ site owners were submitting Sitemaps to us in a different format, or maybe they weren’t submitting Sitemaps at all; either way, it doesn’t mean that we can’t still discover the URLs of OAI-compliant sites through other mechanisms, or continue to index their content. It just means that very few people were actually making use of this format for submitting Sitemaps to Google, which is why we’re discontinuing support of it as a Sitemap format.

Cela fait-il de moi un dangereux homophobe aujourd’hui ? Pour beaucoup de journalistes, il semble que oui… C’est, somme toute, plus triste pour eux que pour moi, je trouve.

    Grim, I’ve spent roughly 75% of my life in a multigenerational household. When I grew up with my retired grandparents in the house, and then after I had my child, my retired in-laws moved in to help. (Fortunately, we don’t speak the same language). This spurred us to move up and buy a bigger house after the bubble burst. It has also basically spoiled me about things like cleaning the house, doing dishes, etc.For some other houses in my neigborhood, the multigenerational houses seem to operate on diffferent rules, more out of desparation, where it’s the younger adults camping with the 50+ parents, and possibly paying rent.
