Order Of St George (IRE) firms to win the Melbourne Cup
11 Sep 2017 | ThoroughbredNEWS News Desk 

The Aidan O'Brien trained Order Of St George (IRE) has firmed from $26 to $17 to win the $6m, Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 7th after a nine-length victory in the Group 1 Irish St Leger (2800m) at the Curragh on Sunday.

Bonneval (NZ) is also on the second line of betting at $17 after winning the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes at The Valley on Saturday, shortening from $26.

“Order Of St George was brilliant winning by nine lengths on the weekend and if he comes for Melbourne for the Cup he will be mighty hard to beat,” TAB’s Nick Quinn said.

“Owner Lloyd Williams said that trainer Aidan O'Brien would make a decision between taking Order Of St George to Melbourne for the Cup or to France for the Arc' on September 18.”

In other changes to feature markets over the weekend, Menari firmed from $6 to $2.60 to win the $1m, Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill on September 23rd and $15 to $6 for the $10m, The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 14th after claiming Group 2 The Run To The Rose over 1200m at Rosehill on Saturday.

Gold Standard was another to impress on Saturday with victory in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes over 1500m and has shortened from $26 to $11 for the Golden Rose and $101 to $17 for the Caulfield Guineas.
