Having left the UK as a 92 rated handicapper (ex-Henry Cecil), Glencadam Gold is now 8/1 joint favourite for the 2012 Emirates Melbourne Cup at William Hill
Now trained by Gai Waterhouse Glencadam Gold made it four wins from four starts in Australia with an all-the-way win in the 2400-metre feature Metropolitan at Randwick..
“Look out Caulfield and Melbourne Cups,” a triumphant Waterhouse said after the race favourite ran away to score by about four lengths over Kelinni.
Glencadam Gold is now set to travel to Melbourne from Syndey for the Caulfield Cup in two weeks.
The Melbourne Cup market is headed by Luca Cumani’s Mount Athos and Glencadam Gold at 8/1 with Green Moon shortening to 10/1 (from 14/1) following his win this morning in the Turnbull at Flemington.
