"Red Cadeaux returns in Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury.

Ed Dunlop feels Saturday's Betfred TV Geoffrey Freer Stakes comes at just the right time as he plans Red Cadeaux's overseas adventures once more.

The popular eight year-old has won over £4million in prize money during a career which has seen him take in races in Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and famously Australia.

Red Cadeaux has been second twice in the Melbourne Cup and Dunlop has his sights set on yet another trip Down Under, hoping it will be fourth time lucky.

He has not been seen since running down the field in Japan in May when the ground was very fast but has been pleasing at home in recent weeks."

"Es Que Love out of Betfred Hungerford Stakes at Newbury.

Conditions at Newbury have ruled the Clive Cox-trained Es Que Love out of Saturday's Betfred Hungerford Stakes.

At his best on a sound surface, Cox had been concerned about potentially unsuitable ground for the five-year-old, who has taken on a new lease of life since joining the Lambourn handler and was a neck victor from Toormore in the Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

He was declared a non-runner on account of the ground following racing at the Berkshire track on Friday.

His absence presents an increased opportunity for Chil The Kite as he bids to back to form for Hughie Morrison after an unsuccessful stint in Dubai.

He won a good pot at Newbury and then finished second under a welter burden in the Royal Hunt Cup.

Jockey George Baker, while acknowledging a step up in class, feels it is well worth a shot."
