Top English trainer Ed Dunlop has used local tactics in preparing Trip To Paris to run in Tuesday’s Group 1 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington.

Dunlop has finished second on three occasions from four starts with the much travelled Red Cadeaux who went into his four Melbourne Cups without a lead up run in Australia, but this year old his well performed Trip To Paris has already had a run on Australian soil.

Traditionally the Group 1 $3m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) has produced the best form line for horses heading towards the Melbourne Cup so Dunlop took that on board and sent Trip To Paris around at Caulfield two weeks ago.

The top English stayer performed incredibly well to finish second to Mongolian Khan and is currently listed as the $8.50 second favourite behind the Japanese stayer Fame Game at $4.40.

“I wanted to try what everyone had said is the route to winning the Cup by giving them a run before,” Dunlop told racing.com.

“He has run very well but I am under no illusion that it is a very good race tomorrow.”

Dunlop wasn’t quite sure how Trip To Paris would handle the Australian conditions and was very pleased with the result.

“We were always hoping but we didn’t know, running in Australia for the first time, a mile and a half Group 1,” Dunlop said.

“It was a great run, very impressed.”

The top Newmarket trainer has reported that Trip To Paris has pulled up incredibly well and will be at his best when the starter presses the button tomorrow.

“Fantastically and Tommy Berry rode him yesterday and was delighted with him,” Dunlop said.

“He is fresh and well at his identical weight to when he ran in the Caulfield Cup and he seems on song.”

Tommy Berry will be aboard the five year old again in the Melbourne Cup after getting a feel of him in the Caulfield Cup and Dunlop is hoping he can position Trip To Paris midfield from barrier fourteen.

“Somewhere in the middle, you know just uncomplicated really,” Dunlop said.

At his next start he finished third to Melbourne Cup roughie Big Orange in the Group 2 £300,000 QATAR Goodwood Cup (2 miles) at Goodwood on July 30 followed by a fifth to Max Dynamite, also a Melbourne Cup rival, in the Group 2 £160,000 Weatherby’s Hamilton Insurance Lonsdale Cup (2 mile, 88 yards) at York, in England, on August 21.
