Marmelo Plotting Route Back To Melbourne Cup

Trainer Hughie Morrison is plotting the same route back to the Melbourne Cup for his stablestar Marmelo, and has hand-selected the Prix Kergorlay at Deauville as his next target.

The six-year-old has built up a familiar looking campaign in the past couple of years having claimed the French Group Two prize in 2017, before being pipped by Holdthasigreen twelve months ago - both efforts on route to the Australian showpiece.

Prior to Deauville, he has competed in the Group Two Prix Maurice de Nieuil at Longchamp - winning last year in July over David Simcock's Algometer, but narrowly and perhaps more unfortunately losing out this season to Way To Paris.

The son of Duke Of Marmalade went closest to Cross Counter nine months ago in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington, and Morrison believes he certainly has the potential to go one better later this year.

(Credit: AtTheRaces) He said: “He came out of his last race well. He is absolutely filled with a zest of life. He is in such good form at the moment.

“I expect we will hold off with him and run him in the Kergorlay.“That is the advantage of not winning the other day – it gives us a really nice plan.

“We have around a month to the Kergorlay, then I would hope to go straight back to Australia.

“That is what we did last year, and I think that is what the Australian team would like.”

Marmelo began his campaign with a clear victory in the Group Three Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise Stakes at Newbury over the likes of Aspetar and Hardwicke scorer Defoe.

Roger Varian's classy grey reversed the form with Marmelo on both of their next starts in the Coronation Cup at Epsom, which has put Morrison back in the mindset of another international campaign.

Very much still his flag bearer with the flop of Telecaster in recent months, Marmelo has earned his connections at the Fairy Story Partnership over £1 million in prize money.

The further the trip the better it seems for the four-time Group winner, who is best priced at 25/1 with most firms for the race that 'stops a nation'.

The 2019 Melbourne Cup is set to take place on Monday 4th November, at 4am BST.
