Tres Blue has received support in 2013 Melbourne Cup betting markets as he continues to impress at the International Equine Centre in Werribee.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained import has been the subject of a number of large bets in the last 24 hours and is now into Melbourne Cup odds of $19 after being available at a price of $26 before second acceptances were received this morning.

Tommy Berry will ride Tres Blue in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington next Tuesday and partnered the Anabaa Blue entire for the first time in trackwork this morning.

Berry told Racing Ahead that Tres Blue was not asked to do any serious work but said that he could not have been happier with the feel that he got from the lightly-raced Northern Hemisphere three-year-old.

“He felt great and he is a very happy horse,” Berry said.

“He is a lovely horse, he is well put together and he gave me a lovely feel this morning.

“He didn’t do any serious work this morning, it was just to let me a feel of him, and we just did a couple of laps.”

Tres Blue will carry just 51kg in the 2013 Melbourne Cup and Berry said that he will not have any problem getting his weight down in order to ride the European Group 2 winner in ‘the race that stops a nation’.

“I’m doing it pretty comfortably at the moment,” Berry said.

“I’m at 52.5kg at the moment and I haven’t had a sweat yet and I am feeling just as good as I did if I was 55kg.

“When you set a goal and you do it properly it is definitely a lot easier.”

Tres Blue was purchased by Round Table Racing, who were founded by Waterhouse’s former racing manager Bruce Slade, last month after he impressed with a number of strong runs during the 2013 European Racing Season.

The lightly-raced stayer finished a narrow second in the Group 1 Sparda Deutsches Derby (2413m) in Germany and finished his Northern Hemisphere campaign with narrow wins in the Group 3 Osas Prix De Reux (2500m) and the Group 2 Lucien Barriere Grand De Deauville (2500m) in France.

Tres Blue will be the first Northern Hemisphere three-year-old to contest the Melbourne Cup since Aidan O’Brien-trained Mahler who finished third behind Efficient in the 2007 edition of the race.

2013 Melbourne Cup betting markets have changed significantly following the withdrawal of Puissance De Lune and a number of stayers who only recently arrived in Australia, like Voleuse De Coeurs ($13) and Royal Empire ($18), have received plenty of support.

    I think that what you posted was actually very logical. However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid, however suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.|

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!|
