King Of Leogrance out of 2020 Melbourne Cup

Danny O’Brien’s strong hand in the 2020 Melbourne Cup (3200m) has been weakened after the scratching of his runner King Of Leogrance, following a veterinary inspection.

The galloper was inspected by Racing Victoria veterinarians on request from the stable and was found to be lame in its off fore leg.

The scratching leaves O’Brien with three runners in the race, with Miami Bound, Russian Camelot, and last year’s winner Vow And Declare all lining up in the $8 million contest.
