Cadeaux up for the Cup
Ed Dunlop is looking forward to preparing Red Cadeaux for another crack at the Emirates Melbourne Cup after his promising start to the season.
The Newmarket trainer reports the six-year-old to have taken his latest run at Royal Ascot in his stride and all roads lead to Flemington on November 6, when he will try to make up for last year's agonising defeat.
Red Cadeaux put in a solid performance when third to Sea Moon in the Hardwicke Stakes over a mile and a half, which is a distance short of his best.
That was his fourth race of the year following second place behind subsequent Gold Cup hero Colour Vision in the Sagaro Stakes at Kempton, victory in the Yorkshire Cup and runner-up spot in the Coronation Cup.
"He's come out of the race well. No plans of where he will go next, he's been a star and hopefully he'll continue to be a star. It will be back to Australia for the Melbourne Cup," Dunlop confirmed.
