A Prince Of Arran will be back again for this years Melbourne Cup

Here’s an early leg up for those who, like me, like having a long range look at the Melbourne Cup.

Charlie Fellowes, the dashing young English trainer who is making a massive name for himself as a thoroughbred mentor is coming to Australia with his 2019 Melbourne Cup hope.

That hope being A Prince Of Arran (Shirocco-Storming Sioux).

You may recall he came here last year with the same horse and he ran 3rd first up, then won the Gr 3 Hotham Hcp before running the gamest of 3rds in what is turning out to be a very strong Melbourne Cup behind the brilliant Cross Counter and Marmelo.

Fellowes, who recently went to Dubai to race, said last night that A Prince Of Arran was working along nicely.

“He has been cantering for over a week now and we are well on course for a run in the Ebor at York in August,” he said.

“Then hopefully we’ll take a short trip across the globe for another crack at the greatest flat race in the world.”

Presumably he means our Cup.

Now, followers of southern Queensland racing may be a little confused with this story right now.

Because they know of a horse named Prince Of Arran who races around the Beaudesert region.

This Prince Of Arran (Nadeem-Centaine Gu Li) is a winner over 1600m and is bred to stay but it appears, given his last start 13th at Coffs Harbout that he may not be in the same races as his English namesake.

For those keen on the real Melbourne Cup 2019 bound galloper, Ladbrokes has him at $26 behind Cross Counter who is solid at $15.
