Today’s Group 3 Centrebet.com Geelong Cup, in which French raider Dunaden defeated Tanby and Bauer, has seen a number of small changes to the order of entry.

As it stands right now, Bauer is number 41 in the order of entry.

    After that huge eye catching performance at geelong today and his late misfotune of being scratched for last years cup due to injury and just being pipped by viewed in his first attempt, bauer fully deserves a real crack at the 2011cup. What a horse! Third time lucky.
