LEADING Victorian trainer Lee Freedman notched a personal triumph yesterday when he won the A$1 million Caulfield Cup for the third time in four years with Doriemus. Now Freedman is looking forward to winning his third Melbourne Cup (3,200 metres) at Flemington on November 7 with the five-year-old gelding. 'He surprised by winning,' said Freedman of Doriemus, who joined Mannerism (1992) and Paris Lane last year as his stable's Caulfield Cup winners. 'He'll be even harder to beat in the Melbourne Cup because the 3,200 metres at Flemington is just what he wants.' Jockey Damien Oliver was at his absolute best on Doriemus, who was sent out at 8-1. He settled his mount perfectly, out wide, in the early stages. Then he brought the chestnut between horses on the home turn to issue his challenge over the last 100 metres. He snatched victory away from the New Zealand entry Count Chivas (25-1) to score by a long neck. The Western Australian Beaux Art, who was sent out at 16-1, was a short head away in third place in a thrilling finish. The 10-1 shot Protara's Bay, who finished solidly to be fourth, was the first of Gai Waterhouse's four runners home. She also earned prize money with Few Are Chosen, who finished fifth, while Electronic, who was backed down to 13-2 favouritism, ran sixth.
