Owner Gerry Ryan has confirmed that Puissance De Lune's is out of the Melbourne Cup after pulling up lame in yesterday's WS Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley.
The grey import finished in the third-last in the field of 14.
Puissance De Lune, which started as second-favourite in the $3million weight-for-age championship of Australasia, over-raced early, but settled into a good position just off the early speed.
He looked under pressure a long way from home though and just battled to the line under the riding of Ben Melham.
The grey finished more than 10 lengths behind the Danny O'Brien-trained Shamus Award, which became the first maiden in history to win the race.
Ballarat trainer Darren Weir told The Courier immediately after the plate that he would wait and see how Puissance De Lune recovered before making a decision on whether or not he would press on towards the Melbourne Cup (3200m) on November 5.
But Weir's comments came before stewards reported that Puissance De Lune had pulled up lame in his left foreleg.
"He over-raced a little bit but got into a good spot and just didn't go any good," Weir said.
"It is disappointing, but what do you do?"
"We will just see how the horse pulls up."
Puissance De Lune has drifted heavily on the TAB's Melbourne Cup market to $19.
