Viewed on track for Cup


Defending Melbourne Cup champion Viewed has had a strong workout at Flemington ahead of his next assignment in the Mackinnon Stakes on Saturday.

viewed With regular track rider Joe Agresta aboard on Tuesday, Viewed worked solo over 2000 metres.
He is the equal favourite for next week’s Cup along with 2007 winner and emerging star Alcopop.
Viewed’s Bart Cummings-trained stablemates Dandaad and Naval Escort worked together at Flemington.
Both are entered for Saturday’s Lexus Stakes which will be their last chance to force their way into the Cup field.
Cummings has three certain runners – Viewed, Roman Emperor and Allez Wonder – in his quest for a 13th Melbourne Cup.
