Dunlop waits on Cadeaux decision

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 who registered his first Group One success in the Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin on Sunday.

However Dunlop fears the cold British winter will be a shock to the system for Red Cadeaux who has spent the past nine weeks overseas in Australia, Japan and Hong Kong and returns to England on Thursday.

"I'm a little concerned having been in the southern hemisphere for so long and he comes back to this 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, 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."
