Melbourne Cup 2011 Is Within Red Cadeaux’s Grasp

Five-year-old gelding Red Cadeaux will be having his first Australian start in the Melbourne Cup 2011 at Flemington Racecourse this Tuesday November 1.

Red Cadeaux finished third in his last start in the Group 1 Irish St Leger and is currently paying odds of $31 to win the 2011 Melbourne Cup at Luxbet.

The five-year-old gelding will be ridden by Michael Rodd in the Melbourne Cup 2011 after the jockey viewed videos of the horse running in the United Kingdom.

Red Cadeaux was allocated barrier 16 in the 2011 Melbourne Cup barrier draws last night.

“Barrier 16 is not too bad, those European horses like a bit of room and I’m drawn outside the favourite Americain and Mourayan is just inside of him, and hopefully I can follow one of those guys,” Rodd said.

“I’ve done a few replays. He’s a horse who likes to be just off the speed.”

Rodd was wary of the other international starters in the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

“It’s a tricky Cup this year with all those internationals,” he said.

“You don’t know how some of them are going to bring their form over here and race.

“We know the ones who have raced here before. Americain and Dunaden have already been there and done that.

“We’ll have to have a good look at it.”
