The Darren Weir trained Puissance De Lune was beaten ten and a half lengths by Cox Plate winner Shamus Award and was never in the race.

Pussiance De Lune is looking a doubtful starter in the Group 1 $6.2m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 5 but Weir won’t make a decision until he gets a chance to see how the six year old recovers in the next couple of days.

“He’s a bit sore, but not too bad,” Weir said.

“But I don’t if we’ll be pushing on. We will see.”

“We’ll see how the horse is tomorrow.”

Bookmakers have reacted quickly and have pushed Puissance De Lune’s Melbourne Cup price out to $26 after his dismal showing in the Cox Plate.

Cox Plate third placegetter Fiorente has cemented his place at the head of the Melbourne Cup betting and is now the clear cut $5 favourite with the English stayers Dandinio ($8) and Mount Athos ($10) the second and third fancies.

The Chris Waller trained Hawkpsur is next in the betting at $12 just in front of David Hayes’ import Jet Away ($13) who ran a mighty race to finish fourth in the Group 1 $2.5m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 19.

    I think that what you typed was very logical. But, think about this, what if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your content is not good, but what if you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.|
