News:

The Melbourne Cup comes down to having the right horse, the right trainer, the right jockey and the right preparation, but most of all luck.

“It’s a Melbourne Cup. We need a lot of luck,” said Tom Magnier, Australian boss of thoroughbred racing and breeding operation Coolmore, which has Kingfisher and Bondi Beach in Tuesday’s race.

In the decade since Sir Michael Stoute, one of the biggest names in world racing, last had a Melbourne Cup runner the world’s richest handicap race has only become tougher.

“I love the race. For years I’ve wanted to come and be competitive in it,” Sir Michael, who has the topweight Snow Sky and whose last Cup runner was Distinction in 2005, said.

“We’ve brought a much better horse this time because we have to.”

It has taken English trainer Michael Bell 26 years to find a horse he deemed suitable to bring to Australia – Big Orange.

After getting everything right to come here – including an owner with deep pockets to pay for the flights and a suitable horse that also has the staying form for the 3200m – it still comes down to those lucky or unlucky three-and-a-half minutes.

“A lot of it’s where you are in the field, if you get a smooth run, if you’re boxed in, if you’re there or if you’re this or you’re that,” Bell said after watching “about 100 Melbourne Cups” since arriving in Australia.

“I think a lot depends on if your horse gets a smooth run round and can move when he wants to. I think that’s probably more important than half a kilo here or half a kilo there.”

Godolphin, the racing and breeding operation owned by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed, has tried more than a dozen times to win the Melbourne Cup.

Its best performance has been to come runner-up three times, just like popular English stayer Red Cadeaux.

“This is a great race to win, we’re trying,” Saeed bin Suroor, trainer of Sky Hunter, said.

“We’ll come back next year and the next year.”

Coolmore for one is looking to high-profile owner and four-time Melbourne Cup winner Lloyd Williams to share his luck through the two horses in their partnership.

Williams, pointing skywards, summed it up: “The guy up there now has to smile on you.”
