Mer De Glace launches Caulfield assault

JAPANESE horse Mer De Glace has taken out the Caulfield Cup, the world's richest mile-and-a-half handicap race with his sixth straight victory.

Punters could throw a blanket over the horses as they came down the home stretch, but Mer De Glace broke away with 200m to go to win by a  length.

Ridden by Damian Lane, he finished ahead of Vow and Declare in second, Mirage Dancer in third and Constantinople in fourth.

 

Pre-post favourite Finche hit the lead at the top of the straight but felt the pinch late after a wide run.

Vow And Declare and Constantinople also pushed their Melbourne Cup credentials with strong runs.
