The ‘Prince’ first announced himself to the Australian racing fraternity during an impressive 2018 Spring Carnival campaign, which saw him place in the Neds Herbert Power Stakes and win the Lexus Stakes before filling the minors behind Cross Counter and Marmelo in the Cup.

He returned in 2019 for another outstanding win in the Geelong Cup, before being denied by the barest of margins on the first Tuesday of November when second behind Vow And Declare.

As the old cliché goes, ‘third time lucky’ is what trainer Charlie Fellowes, his team, connections and Prince Of Arran are aiming for in 2020, and travelling foreman Aled Beech is confident he’ll be in the finish following a sharp piece of work at Werribee late last week.

“I was very happy, it was a solid piece of work,” Beech told Racing.com.

“I was happy with the way he tugged me around there – he kept on quickening and I liked the way he stretched out the last couple of furlongs.”

Prince Of Arran returned a typically impressive effort to finish fourth behind Verry Elleegant in the Caulfield Cup a fortnight ago, and Beech thinks that the run has brought him on for the 2020 Melbourne Cup.

“I was very happy with him going into the race, thought he was ready for the race and he proved me right – It was an incredible run for him,” he said.

“He’s come out of the race really well, he put the weight back on that he lost, he had a nice blow-out this morning, all good.”

In-form hoop Jamie Kah has replaced Michael Walker for Prince Of Arran’s Cups bid and the team is excited by their prospect of potentially saddling the Melbourne Cup winner.

“She’s been incredible, especially the last couple of weeks,” Beech continued.

“I’m just hoping she hasn’t used up all of her winners too soon and keep one for Tuesday.

“He (Prince Of Arran) just loves it over here, he loves the style of racing over here and it suits him down to the ground.”

Prince Of Arran firmed $21 into $15 in 2020 Melbourne Cup betting following his Caulfield Cup run, and is currently perched on the third line of Melbourne Cup betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, offered at odds of $10.
