Trainer Robert Hickmott and owner Lloyd Williams’ hopes of winning consecutive Melbourne Cups have been given a significant boost thanks to top class import Sea Moon. His win in the Herbert Power Stakes at Caulfield has seen his Melbourne Cup price shorten from $31 into $21 withTAB.COM.AU.

Betting remains unchanged at the top of the market with Fiorente still favourite at $6.00 ahead of Hawkspur at $7.00 and Puissance De Lune ($8.00).


Hickmott and Williams took out last year’s Cup with Green Moon, who is considered a $21 shot to go back-to-back. The pair has several runners aimed at the Cup including Masked Marvel ($21) and Metropolitan winner, Seville ($26).
