MUNTAHAA is well worth an interest in the Melbourne Cup, run in the early hours of Tuesday morning, with several firms offering generous each-way terms.
John Gosden has already conquered America with Enable and Muntahaa arrives a fresh horse Down Under having enjoyed a long break since annihilating his rivals in the 20-runner Ebor Handicap at York in August.
The five-year-old, fourth in the 2016 St Leger, is clearly at home in big fields as he posted another fine effort at Royal Ascot when a running-on third to Monarchs Glen.
Hopefully funds will be supplemented by AMANDINE (6.30) at Kempton. David Simcock’s filly is out to snap a frustrating spell, posting seconds at Newmarket and Ascot recently, and she looks excellent ew value.
ROSARNO (7.00) may be able to defy top weight in the mile handicap following a solid course and distance third last time.
