HUGH Bowman has won three Cox Plates, all on the mighty mare Winx, but so far Melbourne Cup has alluded him.
That could all about to change tomorrow when Bowman hops aboard the TAB Fixed Odds Melbourne Cup favourite, Marmelo.
“Marmelo raced very well in the Caulfield Cup and he’s a progressive horse,’’ Bowman told Sportsman.
“I haven’t had a better ride in a Cup than Marmelo.’’
Go Hugh go.
