Constantinople Picture: Bruno Cannatelli

Constantinople can give Lindsay Park another win in the race. He's at $8 in the 2019 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on Tuesday.

2019 MELBOURNE CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Should see a true tempo early with the likes of Master Of Reality, Mirage Dancer and Finche all quickly prominent and Magic Wand could work forward from out wide with Il Paradiso.

CONSTANTINOPLE (19) got stopped in his tracks more than once in the Caulfield Cup. We have to go back to 2008 to find a Melbourne Cup winner coming through the Caulfield cousin but that trend will turn and Constantinople looks the right sort of horse to turn it. Going to relish the more open spaces of Flemington and promises to stay two miles well. York run prior to come across was terrific.

IL PARADISO (20) is another European three-year-old with a promising profile. Worked hard in the Leger at Doncaster but effort was sound and sharp connections send him here. SURPRISE BABY (18) is a natural stayer and things have gone to plan for him. He can provide a stern home defence.

DOWNDRAFT (14) stormed into the picture on Saturday and can run well again on the back of that while MAGIC WAND (15) hasn't done much winning but her Cox Plate run was very solid and it would be no shock to see her run well back to handicap conditions.
