5 Reasons Hartnell CAN’T Win The Cup

racing tips

Hartnell can’t win the Melbourne Cup. Here are the FIVE reasons why:


  1. Hartnell doesn’t stay two miles. His Sydney Cup flop and his 15th in last year’s Melbourne Cup prove it. Forget his Royal Ascot win over 3200m. He was a three-year-old and flattered.

  2. He is a flat track bully and only performs off slow run races. This year’s Cup will be truly run. The white flag will come up by the clocktower.

  3. He has already peaked. His Cox Plate second was well below his Turnbull Stakes demolition.

  4. Hartnell is a confidence animal. That’ll have been blasted by seeing Winx 8L in front of him in the Cox Plate.

  5. He performs best when he can get his toe into the ground. Flemington will play firm as a Good 3.
