Ed Dunlop’s run of being Melbourne Cup bridesmaid could be over if last night’s Ascot Gold Cup winner Trip To Paris makes the trip to Flemington for the first Tuesday in November.

Dunlop has finished twice on three occasions with Red Cadeaux, but his runner Trip To Paris has been entered into the Melbourne Cup market at $34 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Dermot Weld’s Forgotten Rules, who finished third to Trip To Paris, is a $26 chance in the race that stops a nation.

Japanese stayer Fame Game is the early Cup favourite at $15.

“Aussie fans want to keep the Melbourne Cup in Australian hands but we feel a little bit sorry for Ed Dunlap. Trip To Paris shapes as a great chance to snare him a well overdue victory,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
