Charlie Fellowes has accepted Prince Of Arran’s invitation to run in this month’s Japan Cup.
The six-year-old excelled himself again on Tuesday when going close in the Melbourne Cup for a second time, eventually placed second after Master Of Reality was demoted to fourth.
Prince Of Arran is no stranger to Australia and also won the Geelong Cup this year – having taken the Lexus Stakes 12 months earlier.
He has also run with credit in Dubai and America, and clearly excels in the sunshine.
Fellowes tweeted: “Looks like Prince Of Arran is going to get a new stamp in his passport. His next start will be in the Japan Cup on Sunday 24th November. He has come through the Melbourne Cup perfectly and will fly to Tokyo on Monday.”
Popular team competition had been scheduled for August.
