Dunlop - Cadeaux in top shapeHeadlines
Red Cadeaux

Trainer Ed Dunlop feels Red Cadeaux could have better luck on the second leg of his Far Eastern adventure in Sunday's Longines Hong Kong Vase.

This has not been a successful overseas journey for the globetrotter, who was second in last year's Melbourne Cup and later took third in this race. Back for a return visit to Flemington, the chestnut was only eighth off a slow pace, while he could only manage to fill the same position when taking in an additional visit to the Japan Cup.

"The horse is in better shape than he was in Japan," said Dunlop, who watched Red Cadeaux work six furlongs on the Sha Tin grass.

"I am not too concerned that he's lost any zest for it (racing) after what I saw this morning.

"He may lack the class of one or two of his rivals but he's a tough, old street-fighter and he'll give his all."

One of those rivals with more than a bit of class is the filly Dancing Rain, and trainer William Haggas believes conditions are going to suit the dual Oaks winner perfectly. Off for almost a year before her comeback at Ascot, she again worked under the trainer's wife Maureen.

William Haggas said: "She travelled OK and doesn't need to do a lot of work. I might be wrong but if she's not ready by now, she never will be. I think she's improved since Ascot which was her first run back and also on very soft ground. The drying conditions are certainly in her favour."

Haggas also has Master Of Hounds going in the Hong Kong Mile. A winner on his debut for the Newmarket trainer in Turkey, he then chased home Frankel - from a distance - in the Champion Stakes.

The trainer went on: "I am very happy with him. He's well and might be underestimated - remember he was a Group One winner when with Mike De Kock.

"He's very talented and you can pretty well forget his last start - at Ascot - which was over 2000m (10 furlongs) on soft ground. He wants 1600m (a mile) on fast ground so everything should be right on Sunday."
