Remember drops 4 or so kg into the MC.
Just needs some luck in the run with cover (like they all do) & he's got a turn of foot that will see him go a long way in a MC
Did I mention I'm on @ $170/1
Well done on the 170-1 mate.
I had him running in a stack of features via the Metrop at good odds as well.
I have some doubts about him seeing out a strong 3200m however. When Cummings said he was going to bypass The Metrop for The Bart Cummings I thought that was a "tell" that Cummings has the same view - he would have got a (say) 3.5 kg penalty for winning the Metrop which would have been enough to get him into the field but he chose the easier race.
He only fell in in the Bart Cummings beating two horses who will probably meet him on better terms if they get in.
But I'll cheer him on for you if he looks the winner at some stage
