Red Cadeaux on target for Cesarewitch bid

Mon 04 October 2010

RED CADEAUX, who is trying to shrug off a bout of second-itis, having finished runner-up in three big handicaps these past six weeks, at Chester, Haydock and Newmarket, remains bang on target for the Cesarewitch at our home course on Saturday week, and Ed has booked Johnny Murtagh to ride.

Ed said"Johnny was very keen to ride again. He was aboard Red Cadeaux in the Cesarewitch Trial over the big-race course and distance last month and told me that he thought that they were going to hack up coming out of the Dip but that the horse started to prick his ears and look about him up the hill. So we have decided to put a small pair of blinkers on Red Cadeaux on Champions Day so as to make him concentrate and, hopefully, put the race to bed. He is a solid stayer with a turn of foot and a horse who enjoys getting his toe in, but genuine autumn ground would suit him perfectly and, with Snow Fairy (Champion Stakes) in mind, we won't want a mudbath."
