Cup hopes not looking Good for Godolphin


The Godolphin stable is clinging to the slim hope that its Caulfield Cup winner All The Good will be fit to run in next Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup.

All The Good

Trainer Saeed bin Suroor said the lameness discovered yesterday morning had worsened but he was still unable to determine its cause.

He said the horse showed no sign of swelling and there was no heat in any of its joints.

"So far I don’t know what the problem is but we will have more X-rays tonight," said bin Suroor.

Connections have until tomorrow night to pay the final entry fee for the Cup and the trainer said it was likely they would wait until that time before making a decision.

Even if the horse makes a miracle recovery its chances would still be in doubt after missing vital gallops yesterday and today.
