Red Cadeaux Likely to Feature in 2013 Melbourne Cup Field

The 2013 Melbourne Cup is still nearly six months away but connections of regular visitor Red Cadeaux have signalled their intentions to have another crack at Australia’s biggest race.

The globetrotting galloper has had two attempts at the $6.2 million staying contest, finishing second by the narrowest of margins in 2011 before running eighth last year.

Based at Newmarket in the UK with high profile trainer Ed Dunlop, the seven-year-old is a proven traveller, having raced in the UK, Ireland, France, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan and Singapore.

In his current campaign he has shown solid form. After winning the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase in December, Red Cadeaux resumed to run second in the Dubai World Cup in March.

He has since finished third in the Group 1 Tenno Sho in Japan and was eighth in the Singapore International Cup on Sunday.

Speaking after Sunday’s Singapore outing, assistant trainer Robin Trevor-Jones indicated a third trip to Australia is definitely on the cards.

But whether it will be a hit-and-run mission on the Melbourne Cup is still to be decided, with Trevor-Jones indicated he could take part in some of the lucrative lead-up races.

“The chances of him coming back are very good because the owner is very keen, but whether we just do the Melbourne Cup is another matter because we might do something else first,” he told News Limited.

“If he comes out of this all right, he’ll race at Royal Ascot (next month) and then have a break and probably go back to Australia.”

Top Australian jockey Michael Rodd partnered Red Cadeaux in his two Melbourne Cup starts but is unlikely to retain the ride this year.

Trevor-Jones said the association French jockey Gerald Mosse has formed with the stayer since last year’s Melbourne Cup would be hard to break.
