Beautiful Romance has been seeing little to no action since the field draw and is now out to $81. However, Saeed bin Suroor, the mares trainer is confident of a good performance in the Melbourne Cup tomorrow.
When the 2016 Melbourne Cup field and barrier draw was announced on Saturday, Beautiful Romance was available at $41. Unfortunately, there has been very little money placed and she now sits at $81 with most reputable bookmakers.
Suroor Believes in Beautiful Romance
Saeed bin Sauroor is not a stranger to training Melbourne Cup runners having trained three to runners up finishes in the past. He might not have seen a victory yet but ensures that is no reason as to why this mare cannot be the one for him.
“She’s a Group 2 winner at York in England and is doing really well,”
“We have finished second here three times in the past and this filly is in good form, we just need to see them handy in the race.”
“If we win it, it would be a great result for Godolphin and for racing, and for Melbourne Cups here.”
“In the past it’s been great to see our horses run second three times, but this time we’re looking forward to seeing them run better even.”
