French Jockey Likely 2012 Melbourne Cup Rider Of Tac De Boistron

Leading French jockey Oliver Doleuze appears set to take the ride on Tac De Boistron in Tuesday’s 2012 Melbourne Cup after first-choice rider Christophe Soumillon was suspended in Japan.

Tac De Boistron is one of a number of French contenders in the 2012 Melbourne Cup

Doleuze will be hoping for a better performance in what will be his second ride in the race after finishing 45 lengths last when riding Zabeat in 2006.

Tac De Boistron, now trained by Mick Kent, will be out to continue the strong recent success of French horses in the Melbourne Cup and is guaranteed a start.

The son of Take Risks sits at 20th in the order of entry on the back of success in Europe including a win at Group 2 level in France in July.

But the Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock-owned runner will have to show a quick form turnaround, having finished a disappointing sixth in the Geelong Cup.

Tac De Boistron ($41) will carry 53.5kg in the Cup, 5.5kg less than 2011 winner Dunaden (59kg) who impressed jockey Craig Williams during a track gallop at Werribee yesterday.

“He knew he’d had a win [the Caulfield Cup], it was as though he knew he’d done something special,” Williams said.

“It’s smooth, it’s like his feet don’t touch the ground.”

Dunaden is currently $7.00 second favourite to go back-to-back in the Melbourne Cup, with fellow French Melbourne Cup winner Americain the favourite at $6.00.

Internationals dominate the top end of the market, with Mount Athos ($8.00) also ahead of the best Australian chance, Maluckyday ($11.00).

2011 runner-up Red Cadeaux is also among the top fancies at $11.00 while French horse Brigantin is at $16.00 despite not being guaranteed a start.

Brigantin, runner-up in the Group 2 Prix Kergolay in March, is 27th in the order of entry meaning he needs three horses to drop out in order to gain a start.
