Bendigo Cup 2011 Field & Barrier Draw

October 25th, 2011

The Bendigo Cup 2011, set to run on Wednesday 26th October 2011, will feature a final field of 13 horses.

For a number of horses the Bendigo Cup is their last chance to make the Melbourne Cup 2011 field, with a win the only way left to move up the ballot order.

Horses looking to make the 2011 Melbourne Cup field that are set to run in the Bendigo Cup are: At First Sight, Lamasery, Sahara Sun, Tanby, Back In Black, Two For Tea, Western Symbol and Cosmonaut. Though for At First Sight and Sahara Sun, two horses who are currently within the top 24 in the order of entry for the Melbourne Cup, a win in the Bendigo Cup could give them a Melbourne Cup penalty.

Western Symbol drew barrier 1 for the Bendigo Cup while At First Sight, the current favourite at $3.30 with Luxbet, will jump from barrier 5. Melbourne Cup hopeful Tanby will start from barrier 4 and is currently at $4.20 with Luxbet while Lamasery, who could also incur a Melbourne Cup penalty with a win, drew the widest barrier in 13 and is at $5.50 with Luxbet.
