Melbourne Cup champion Americain has finished sixth first up in France

Americain has had his first run in what many hope will be the start of another Melbourne Cup campaign.

In stark contrast to how Australian stayers are prepared American’s first up run was over 3100m in France.

He finished sixth in the race but connections are reportedly still quite happy after he didn’t find a lot of luck down the home straight.

The Listed Prix Right Royal was his first test in 2011 and he was carted around in a good position on the rail.

Once they turned for home however his position proved detrimental and he couldn’t get out off the rail.

“He had no room to challenge,” his trainer, Alain de Royer-Dupre said.

Despite the lure of huge prize money American will not be entered for the Ascot Gold Cup either.

“The horse won’t be going to Ascot for the Gold Cup and I’m preparing him for the Coronation Cup at Epsom,” de Royer-Dupre said.

American is trained in France but owned by Australians Gerry Ryan and Kevin Bamford who are hopeful he will return to defend his Melbourne Cup crown.

The only other race American has had since winning the 2010 race was a third in the Hong Kong Vase last December.
