I wonder how NW will handle the fact that the majority of the best jockeys down under and Ryan Moore are riding in Sydney

I always thought Nick was born in Australia but I have been informed he was actually born in Victoria 

I myself prefer the CC over the Everest

"Mike Moroney’s import Sound and Lindsay Park's Neufbosc found their way into Saturday’s Caulfield Cup field on Monday morning following the news that Raymond Tusk and Kings Will Dream would not be taking their place in the race.

Racing Victoria on Monday morning advised that the Richard Hannon-trained five-year-old, a last-start fourth placegetter in the Ebor Handicap, would bypass the $5 million event to concentrate on the Melbourne Cup."

Anybody able to tell me more about Mark Du Plessis mount.Thanks.

UK horse that won there before spending a couple of years in HK. Returned to UK via Dubai running 4th to Cross Counter and Ispolini in the Dubai Gold Cup over 2m. (beaten a fair margin). I think has run best races around the 12f mark as opposed to 2 mile. But was seriously backed early on to win Melbourne Cup.

If they have him fit for Saturday, has to be a decent chance. UK form OK on return but not startling. Best runs HK probably his 2nd/3rd to Pakistan Star over 10f/12f in G1 races. So definitely has ability. Same trainer as Magic Circle that came over last year and was one of favs for Melbourne Cup but didn't perform.
