Yeats Early Melb Cup Favourite

Friday, 23rd June 2006

Immediately after his Gr1 Ascot Gold Cup triumph, British bookmakers installed Yeats as 10-1 early favourite for this year's Gr1  Melbourne Cup (at Flemington on Tuesday November 7). His trainer Aidan O'Brien told racenews.co.uk: "We were going to go to Melbourne last year, but then decided to wait & think about going this year. But probably he'll now have too much weight; we'll have to see what the handicapper does. But what tends to happen after a week like this is that we go home & discuss plans for all the horses afterwards."
