Glencadam Gold to 2012 Melbourne Cup with Berry on Top

Tommy Berry has been recalled to ride Glencadam Gold in the 2012 Melbourne Cup on Tuesday week as well as in Saturday’s Group 3 2012 Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington.

Glencadam Gold

Tommy Berry has been recalled to ride Glencadam Gold in the Melbourne Cup

Berry rode the four-year-old in his four-length romp in the Group 1 Metropolitan (2400m) as well as the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) but was sacked for the Caulfield Cup in favour of the more experienced Jim Cassidy.

It may have been a blessing in disguise for the up-and-coming hoop though, with Glencadam Gold finishing 15th after starting as favourite on the back of the Metropolitan win.

With Cassidy committed to 2010 Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday, Berry gets his opportunity to ride on the biggest stage in Australian racing.

But it will have to be a remarkable turnround from his mount if he is to taste success after the import finished 15 lengths behind Caulfield Cup winner Dunaden in his first test in Melbourne.

The Refuse To Bend Gelding was previously unbeaten in Australia from four starts, with another of his big wins a start-to-finish domination of the Group 3 Newcastle Cup (2300m).

He is one of two runners striving to end hall of fame trainer Gai Waterhouse’s unsuccessful Melbourne Cup record, with fellow import Fiorente set to make his Australian debut in the $6 million race.

Fiorente has reportedly settled in well to Australia and if he brings some of the form he has shown in Europe he will be among the contenders on Tuesday week.

The son of Monsun was a Group 2 winner in the Princess Of Wales’s Stakes (2400m) at Newmarket in July when beating the highly-rated Joshua Tree and last year’s Melbourne Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux.

The latest round of acceptances for the Melbourne Cup were announced today which has caused some minor changes in the Melbourne Cup market.
