Red Cadeaux Backed To Lose Bridesmaid Tag

Wednesday, 11th March 2015

Three-time Melbourne Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux ($13) is being well backed to claim the Australian Cup on Saturday. Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has laid one bet of $2000 on the perennial bridesmaid. While Red Cadeaux is being well supported, equal $5.00 favourite Hartnell is not as popular as Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist ($5.00). "Punters are getting behind Red Cadeaux and if any horse deserves a Cup win it is him. He's the best backed runner ahead of Protectionist, who will be a lot fitter for his second-up run,'' said sportsbet.com.au's Shaun Anderson. Lankan Rupee ($3.50) continues to be the one punters want in the Newmarket. The Mick Price trained gelding holds more than double the money than $2.70 favourite Chautauqua.
