The speedy Redzel will be tested for the first time going the Melbourne way when he lines up against a slick field of sprinters in the Group 3 $150,000 The Resimax Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

All of the front running Redzel’s three wins have been over the 1100m on Sydney tracks when he has run his rivals into the ground and co-trainer Paul Snowden is hoping he can do the same against his opposition this week going the reverse way.

Snowden, who trains in partnership with his father Peter, said that if the explosive Snitzel four year old can repeat his last start all the way win in the $85,000 July Sprint (1100m) at Canterbury Park on July 23, he will have more opportunities to pick up extra races over the Melbourne Spring Carnival.

“That’s the test for him on Saturday to see whether he can or not (go the Melbourne way),” Snowden said.

“He has never been away from home before and he has never been the reverse way of going.”

“So it is a little bit foreign to him at this stage but if he does get around the Melbourne way quite well, there is more options for him in Melbourne than there is in Sydney at the moment.

“Hopefully he can run well tomorrow and you might see a bit more of him (in Melbourne).”

Melbourne based Mark Zahra takes over from Kerrin McEvoy on Redzel whose with his blistering early gate speed should be able to overcome the outside barrier in the twelve horse field.

Redzel is raced by the very successful Triple Crown Syndications who will be looking for their second winner for the week after Rock Mylady carried their red colours to victory in a 1600m BenchMark 75 Handicap at Gosford on Tuesday.

Redzel is on the second line of betting for the Resimax Stakes at $6 at Ladbrokes.com.au and will be taking on the Stradbroke Handicap winner Under The Louvre who heads the market order at $3.10.

The Robert Smerdon trained Under The Louvre is having his first run back after winning the Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11 and has also drawn wide at ten.

While Under The Louvre has never won over the 1100m, he did run second over this course and distance behind stablemate Shamal Wind in the 2015 Group 1 $400,000 Oakleigh Plate.

The Tony McEvoy trained Shiraz is another Group 1 placed sprinter who will be running home hard at the finish and has been listed as a $8.50 chance.

Shiraz made up plenty of ground from the back when second to Griante in the Group 1 $700,000 Banjo Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill during the 2016 Sydney Autumn Carnival.

Market order for The Resimax Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3.10 Under The Louvre, $6 Redzel, $6.50 Hellbent, $7,50 Miss Promiscuity, $8 Santa Ana Lane, $8.50 Shiraz, $13 We’ve Got This, $17 Diamond Oasis, $21 Trevinder, $31 Dan Zephyr, $67 Sunday Escape, $126 Jersey Whistler.
