Melbourne’s biggest spring races are fast approaching and if history is any guide, overseas horses are set to figure prominently.
For the first time ever, the first three horses across the line in the 2018 Melbourne Cup were British trained (Cross Counter, Marmelo and Prince of Arran).
That trio from last year’s Melbourne Cup are set to return and the ‘Internationals’ look just as strong this year with several horses set to link up with Australian trainers upon their arrival.
Local punters may be perplexed by plenty of new horses appearing in form guides so Racing.com’s Carl Di Iorio has done the hard work for you.
