Solid Justice to be served in the aged
handicap over nigh on ten furlongs of
Wolverhampton Tapeta this afternoon,
seventeen days after this Jason Ward-
trained Rock Of Gibraltar gelding got off
the mark at the eighth attempt.
It was only by a short-head that expe-
rienced amateur rider Carol Walton goaded
Solid Justice into a last stride success, over
a similar distance on a soft Redcar surface,
but there was plenty of determination from
both; it s a good time to hit top form and
indeed that represented a career-best effort
by the winner.
On the time-handicap Solid Justice is
clear best-in and though wary about the
effect of weight(s) in amateur riders races
I m confident of a follow-up under Tom
Eaves, one of the best and most consistent
unsung jockeys around.
Obviously this all-weather surface could
be a different proposition but it seems to
have an emphasis on stamina; Solid Justice
improved for distance, last time out!
Edge Of Heaven has an outstanding
opportunity of making it sixth time lucky
off bottom-weight in the Maiden 2-y-o
Auction Stakes over an extended mile,
enough boxes are ticked for a serious punt
but, as ever, Jonathan Portman s charge will
just be included in our daily patent!
That s the key to betting, adopt a constant
approach and don t waver; the temptation
to increase stakes must be resisted, treat
your hobby as a business.
Although Edge Of Heaven really does
look the biz I ll be casting an uneasy glance
at once-raced Callendula, a once-raced
Halling filly which shaped well over course
and distance last month; Clive Cox has a
happy knack of producing the goods second
It will be a surprise if any other is able
to reach the Edge!

Ed Dunlop believes it would be his career high-
light if Red Cadeaux can finally lay claim to the
Emirates Melbourne Cup at Flemington tomor-
Now eight and back for a fourth tilt at Australia s
greatest race, the trainer is not discounting success,
with the chestnut clearly transformed by the Vic-
torian climate and twice runner-up already.
A visit to Japan in the spring left Red Cadeaux
sore and in need of a long break, before he produced
a good fourth in the Geoffrey Freer at Newbury
and a moderate last in Kempton s September
Dunlop, who mopped up Group Ones around
the world with his great mares Snow Fairy and
Ouija Board, was asked what winning the race
"Everything," he said.
"It would probably be the greatest victory of
my training career, but I think a huge amount for
Ronnie Arculli (owner).
"It was his dream to try to win the Melbourne
Cup with Red Cadeaux, he kindly paid and is
about to do it four times, I think it would be an
"He s as good as he s been since he s been here,
his weight s good, and being drawn in 15 means
we can do what we like.
"I think it s more open, the horse that just got
in down the bottom (Saturday s Lexus Stakes win-
ner Signoff) is interesting.
"Whether there s the strength in depth, I doubt.
"He s been second twice, and was very unlucky
not to win the first time. Let s hope he gets a good
passage and that it s a truly run raceand not a
Roger Varian, who saddled Farraaj to finish a
respectable but frustrating third at Flemington on
Saturday, runs My Ambivalent.
Last year s Pretty Polly Stakes winner has earned
a reputation for having her own ideas at the Wer-
ribee quarantine centre.
"She missed the Caulfield Cup (with a setback)
but sometimes things happen for a reason," he
"She does run well after a break and although
she s not straightforward, she behaves on the track
and she s fit and well."
Marco Botti managed a third with Jakkalberry
a couple of years ago and saddles Geoffrey Freer
winner Seismos, who was down the field at
"He s had a similar preparation to Jakkalberry
and I knew the Caulfield Cup would be a bit sharp
for him," Botti said.
"He hasn t run on ground as quick as this but
he s a sound horse. He should run a respectable
race, and shouldn t be an outsider."
Saeed bin Suroor has been visiting Melbourne
for even longer than Red Cadeaux, saddling three
seconds to date.
This time around he brings Willing Foe and
Cavalryman, who finished in mid-division in 2012
but has never been better at the age of eight and
won this year s Princess of Wales s Stakes and
"Cavalryman is a different horse, he has won
Group Twos at a mile and a half and two miles.
He s doing well and is very happy here," the Godol-
phin trainer said.
James McDonald has been booked for Willing
Foe, second in the Geoffrey Freer and a good fourth
in the Irish Leger.
The top Kiwi jockey said: "He s got an awkward
barrier draw (17) but he s got a good turn of foot
and hopefully he ll suit Australian racing.
"I ve sat on him and he s coming along really
Sky Bet cut Many Clouds

While Holywell could find

man of a horse this year. He
was only a teenager last sea-

brought down in the RSA it
might be a blessing in disguise

bit worried what the handi-

"He s an improving horse.
It would be nice to go for the
Hennessy, but he does need
winter ground, like it is here.
"There are plenty of other
good prizes we could go for

He said: "It was a good run
considering we were giving 6lb
to the winner.
"He was tight to one or two
down the back and Brian
(Harding, jockey) said he would
definitely prefer better ground.
"It was only his fifth chase
and only his second at this sort
of level. I m sure he ll improve
for the run and we ve lost
nothing in defeat.
"We ll probably look to

well, much better than at this
time last year, which is a plus.
