Cup Contender Enters Quarantine
Prix Kergorlay winner Marmelo (Duke of Marmalade-Capriolla, by In the Wings) entered quarantine on Wednesday and will travel to Australia later this month to prepare for the Melbourne Cup, reports Sky Sports. The Hughie Morrison-trained 4YO was allocated 55kg for Australia’s most famous race when weights were released on Tuesday. "He's going into quarantine and will fly out at the end of the month," said Morrison. "The handicapper's been pretty tough on him. The form probably reflects his rating and on we go.” He added: "Hopefully he can run well over there and come back for the Cup races here next year. We've been quite careful not to over-race him this year as we've had this race at the back of our minds."
