A road trip to Flemington has sparked up Irish Melbourne Cup contender Max Dynamite.

The Willie Mullins-trained stayer was the only one of the international contenders to leave the Werribee quarantine centre on Tuesday morning.

Former Irish jumps jockey David Casey has been looking after Max Dynamite in Melbourne and said the stable grasped the opportunity to give the horse a look at the track where he will race next Tuesday.

Max Dynamite was given the whole experience from the raceday stalls and a walk through the tunnel into the mounting yard before some light work on the Flemington course proper.

“He’s been here a month now so it was just to give him a day away, get him in the horse box, get his blood up a bit and have a look at the track,” Casey said on his return to Werribee.

“He did a bit of work on the track, a warm-up lap then had a canter around, quickening up the straight.

“It was just to get a feel of the place and he really came alive when he got there as he’s become a bit lazy here.”

Max Dynamite has been given steady work since arriving on September 26 with Mullins making the trip from Ireland a fortnight ago to inspect the stayer.

The gelding was given a solid hit-out during Mullins’ visit which convinced the trainer he didn’t need a race start before the Melbourne Cup.

Casey said Max Dynamite might do a piece of stronger work on Thursday to top him off for the Cup.

“He’s a very clean-winded horse,” Casey said.

“We gave him a good blow when Willie came over and that just proved to us that he didn’t need a run as he was in very good order that day.

“We might do a bit stronger work on Thursday but we’ll keep to the routine with a few canters in between and keep him sound until race day.

“That’s the most important thing in the last week.”
