Tres Blue Late 2013 Melbourne Cup Entry for Waterhouse

Gai Waterhouse has taken her Melbourne Cup 2013 contingent up to a dozen with connections paying the late entry before the deadline to have French import Tres Blue added to the nominations for the ‘race that stops a nation’.

Early nominations for the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) were taken by Racing Victoria last Tuesday with 135 stayers entered for the Flemington classic on Tuesday November 5.

Late entries officially closed at 12:00pm (AEST) today and they $55,000 late entry fee was paid by Hall of Fame trainer Waterhouse for Anabaa Blue colt Tres Blue.

The well-performing Irish-bred galloper is yet to race down under having previously been prepared in France by Ha Pantall.

They have however won four of their eight starts to date including their last two at Group level during August.

The first was a nice effort over Montclair in the Group 3 Prix de Reux (2500m) before they backed up at the same track and distance to win the Group 2 Prix De Deuaville by a narrow margin last start.

Owners are now eyeing a start in the world’s richest handicap for them with the Melbourne Cup 2013 firmly on the agenda.

Waterhouse now has a total 12 hopefuls heading towards the Melbourne Cup the top fancy of which is Fiorente who pays $12 as the third favourite in the markets behind Puissance De Lune ($7) and Sea Moon ($11).

The Monson stallion was second in the Melbourne Cup in their Australian debut last spring behind Green Moon and has had two starts since.

The first was their sole autumn run when third behind All Too Hard in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).

Fiorente then resumed off a four month spell on August 31 at Caulfield finishing a credible sixth to the undefeated Cox Plate favourite Atlantic Jewel in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

The only other horse in the Waterhouse Melbourne Cup contingent under triple figures in betting is then Carlton House ($51) who was a notable non-acceptor for the Caulfield Cup this week.

The other late Melbourne Cup entry was then the Jake Stephens-trained Gris Caro.

A French import, the With Approval stallion debuted down under on September 4 winning the Listed Balaklava Cup (1600m).

Aliyana Tilde meanwhile has been retired and withdrawn due to a tendon injury.

2013 Melbourne Cup first acceptances close on October 8 before the second declarations on October 28.

The official 24-starter Melbourne Cup field and barriers are then out on Saturday November 2 after the action of Victoria Derby Day.
