He could not do it as a jockey, but Irish legend Johnny Murtagh will be trying to win the Melbourne Cup this year as a trainer.

Online bookmaker has added the Murtagh trained Mutual Regard to Caulfield and Melbourne Cup markets at $34.

The five-year-old was an impressive winner of the Ebor Handicap at York and Murtagh declared the Cups were on the radar.

“Johnny Murtagh was a superstar jockey and you have to respect his opinion. He rates Mutual Regard as an ideal Cup horse and it appears he will be doing everything to get the gelding here,’’’s Shaun Anderson said.

The Offer is $13 favourite for the Melbourne Cup and also heads betting for the Caulfield Cup at $15. Sportsbet is paying each-way on four placings in both races.
