Jockey Jamie Mott can’t count on one Melbourne Cup opportunity every year, making Tuesday’s race against last year’s winner Vow And Declare vital to his career

Mott’s only previous race in the Melbourne Cup was on underdog Winchester, who finished 17th in 2012 Mott rode Winchester at 555kg but has the relative luxury of riding Vow And Declare at 57kg

Vow And Declare trainer Danny O’Brien has used Mott’s services effectively in the past Mott has ridden nearly 70 winners for the team in recent years, which has led to the booking of the Melbourne Cup

Damien Oliver led Vow And Declare to 15th place in the Caulfield Cup but decided to stay with Russian Camelot in the Melbourne Cup

Craig Williams raced Vow And Declare in the Melbourne Cup win last year but ended his association with the horse in September Mott was happy to answer O’Brien’s call

« They don’t come very often at all, so I’m lucky this year that Danny has four runners racing which gave me a chance to ride him, » Mott said. >

Vow And Declare will be 5kg heavier than last year’s gaining weight However, the prep form of the stayer trained by Danny O’Brien is not as strong as in 2019

There are nuances of Think Big in Vow And Declare’s situation on Tuesday Think Big won the Melbourne Cup in 1974 but went without a win until he won the big race the next tear

Mott hopes that the fact that Vow And Declare is a proven Melbourne Cup player and that O’Brien’s decision to put blinders on the gelding can bring him back to his best form on Tuesday

« He’s not at the same level of form as last year, but he’s been there and done it, » Mott said

« The blinders continue for the Cup, so hopefully they will be the thing to bring him back in one of his best form

« He could be just a Flemington horse and we saw him take it to another level when he hit two miles »

Drawing the fourth barrier will help Mott set Vow And Declare into a pace at the start of the $ 8 million race

Mott said Vow And Declare will have a smooth run early on while more fancy riders will work to find long-term positions until the first corner.

« He should be able to get a really nice spot without doing any work at all when a few of the key chances have been largely ruled out, making it harder for them, » Mott said. / p>

« He’s going to have a good race and he’s not going to spend gas to get it »
