Red Cadeaux Ready to go One Better in 2012 Melbourne Cup

Red Cadeaux has arrived in Australia fit and well and connections believe he can avenge his 2011 defeat to Dunaden when he contests the 2012 Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Dunaden and Red Cadeaux

Red Cadeaux will be out to turn the tables on Dunaden in this year's Melbourne Cup

The Ed Dunlop-trained gelding was beaten narrowly last year when carrying 53.5kg compared to Dunaden’s 54.5kg but meets the French star far better at the weights this year.

Dunaden, who was originally set to carry 58kg, received a one kilogram penalty for his Caulfield Cup win and will now carry 59kg which is 3.5kg more than Red Cadeaux (55.5kg).

The Red Cadeaux camp will follow a similar preparation to last year when they head into the Melbourne Cup without a lead-up run in Australia.

Foreman Robin Trevor-Jones admits Dunaden is a better horse but is confident they can reverse the 2011 result given the weight advantage.

”Dunaden is the better horse at level weights but with the extra weight we should beat him,” Trevor-Jones said.

The Newmarket-based stayer has been in terrific form since departing Australian shores following last year’s Melbourne Cup.

He ran third in the Hong Kong Vase last December before a four-start campaign in the UK which began in May.

The son of Cadeaux Genereux finished in the top three in all four outings including a win in the Group 2 Yorkshire Cup and a runner-up effort behind St Nicholas Abbey in the Coronation Cup.

Trevor-Jones believes those results show he is an improved horse from last year, pointing to the Yorkshire Cup win in which he was dominant.

‘I think his form has improved this year,” Trevor-Jones said.

“He bolted in in the Yorkshire Cup.”
