Red Cadeaux Primed for Fourth Melbourne Cup Tilt

Unlucky to have finished a close second in two editions of the Race That Stops a Nation over three attempts, trainer Ed Dunlop has been thrilled with the form and class displayed by talented globetrotter Red Cadeaux in the lead-up to his fourth tilt at the Melbourne Cup next Tuesday.

Finishing a close second to Dunaden in his first competitive appearance in Australia in the 2011 Cup, Red Cadeaux was unable to handle the late pace of runway winner Green Moon when eighth in 2012, but pushed clear favourite Fiorente to the limit last year.

Completing a strong piece of work at Werribee on Thursday morning, Dunlop told TVN the Cadeaux Genereux gelding relishes the Australian conditions and way of going, and is excited by the prospect of maiden Australian success in the 2014 Melbourne Cup.

“He really performs at his best when he comes to Australia,” Dunlop said.

“I don’t know why but he just loves it here.

“I thought last year would be his last Melbourne Cup but he just keeps coming up and he’s in marvellous form again this year.”

Securing an impressive total of seven race wins and a further 17 minor places from his 46 competitive starts so far, Red Cadeaux jumped as an outsider in the 2011 Melbourne Cup despite finishing third in the Group 1 Irish St Leger (2816m) as a final point of call before travelling to Australia.

Far less successful when lining up for the 2012 edition of the Cup first-up following nearly four months away from racing, Red Cadeaux again performed to a high standard in the 2013 Melbourne Cup after finishing fourth in the Irish St Leger in the lead-up.

Having run fourth in the Group 3 Geoffrey Freer Stakes (2670m) and seventh in the Group 3 September Stakes (2414m) most recently, Red Cadeaux is currently available at particularly generous odds of $17 for success in Melbourne Cup betting markets; sharing the sixth line of betting at with Signoff.
