Red Cadeaux in Great Form Ahead of 4th Melbourne Cup Bid

A shipment of 19 international horses arrived in Melbourne on Saturday, ready to contest feature races during the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival.

Included on the flight was the UK-based popular raider Red Cadeaux, who will embark on his fourth Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) bid on November 4th.

Robin Trevor Jones, the travelling foreman for Red Cadeaux’s trainer Ed Dunlop, said the eight-year-old arrived in “stupid good form” and loved coming out to Australia.

The runner-up in both 2011 and 2013 Melbourne Cups lost just three kilos on his trip out from England.

“He’s in stupid good form, fingers crossed everything goes well in the next few days,” Trevor Jones said to TVN.

“Mr Arculli (the owner) is brilliant. He lets the horse have a full stall on the plane and I’m able to let him down as if he’s in his own box at home.

“He’s eaten and he’s drunk. I can’t see any problems.”

Red Cadeaux is an early $34 bet with to claim victory in the 2014 Melbourne Cup – his fourth crack at the race that stops the nation.

The iron horse first ran the Flemington race back in 2011, which he lost by just a nose to Dunaden. He returned in 2012 but didn’t fare as well after coming home in eighth place. He then returned to top form in the 2013 Melbourne Cup, second home once again, this time to Fiorente by just three-quarters of a length.

Dunlop’s raider is clearly at home on the Flemington track, and connections are hoping his fourth time running the Melbourne Cup will be the charm.

The remaining 18 horses, including Group 1-winning mare Ambivalent and Marco Botti’s Dandino, all arrived safe as they prepare to contest races including the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m), Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), and the Melbourne Cup.
