Cold comfort for Red CadeauxHeadlines
Red Cadeaux

Ed Dunlop will see how Red Cadeaux copes with the British winter before deciding whether to prepare his globetrotter for another potentially lucrative trip.

The Newmarket trainer is considering the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan for the six-year-old gelding after he registered a first Group One success in the Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin on Sunday

However, Red Cadeaux has been used to the warmer climes of the southern hemisphere for the last nine weeks with visits to Australia, Japan and Hong Kong, and Dunlop fears the cold British weather will be a shock to his system when he returns home on Thursday.

"I'm a little concerned, having been in the southern hemisphere for so long and coming back to the weather we have here, which is going to get worse everyone tells us," Dunlop told At The Races.

"It will be a bit of a culture shock for him when he returns to us on Thursday. We will see how he copes with it. We've got a stable with heat lamps, which we will use, and see.

"He will be entered in the Sheema Classic and possibly the staying race, but the Sheema Classic now looks the more likely.

"If he is OK we will consider it, if we're not happy we will wait and start with a European campaign and then do it all again.

"We discussed before he ran on Sunday that next year would be his last year. It probably will be, but it's quite hard to be saying that when at the age of six (and on) his last start of the year, he wins a Group One for the first time.

"The horse keeps improving, he enjoys his racing and keeps being competitive. He has to run in all the big races now.

"I'm sure Ronnie (Arculli, owner) and I will discuss whether we keep him for some time yet."
