Bowman Booked for Red Cadeaux in Australian Cup 2015

Ed Dunlop’s triple Melbourne Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux makes history on Saturday as the first European raider to travel down under for a Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Usually the spring is the forte of the veteran nine-year-old, Red Caeaux having contested four Melbourne Cups at Flemington from 2011 – 14 for a trio of second place finishes.

Last year the evergreen Cadeaux Genereux gelding was second past the post behind German stayer Protectionist as a 20/1 shot in the ‘race that stops a nation’ before he travelled to Sha Tin for a sixth in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m).

Saturday will be his first run since, Red Cadeaux resuming under weight-for-age conditions in the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington’s Super Saturday.

He is yet to win first-up from nine previous attempts, his best result being a trio of seconds when resuming.

Bowman is still thrilled to pick up the Melbourne ride however, the hoop chasing his sixth Group 1 of the season after winning his fifth in Sydney last Saturday aboard Hallowed Crown in the Rosehill Guineas.

“He is a headline horse no doubt about it and he is a very consistent horse,” Bowman told The Sydney Morning Herald of Red Cadeaux.

“His form is outstanding and he has run very well in some of the biggest races on the planet.”

Superstar sprinter Terravista looks Bowman’s best chance of adding to his elite level tally for the season on Saturday with the Joe Pride-trained Darley Classic winner resuming in the $1 million Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m).

Red Cadeaux meanwhile is a lovely ride to enjoy, but Bowman knows the 2000m is likely short of his best.

“The 2000 metres is probably a bit short of his best distance but it is a lovely point for him to start his campaign,” he said.

Bowman though sticks on Red Cadeaux through the rest of his autumn campaign that will see him contest the $1.5 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill on March 28 and then the $1.6 million Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) back up over the two miles at Randwick on Day 2 of The Championships, April 11.

In early Australian Cup betting at for this weekend Red Cadeaux is rated an $11 chance in markets led by the John O’Shea-trained import Hartnell ($5) and reigning Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist ($5.50).

Futures Sydney Cup odds are also led by the same two, with Red Cadeaux slightly shorter in those all-in markets at $10.
