Fresh off recently breaking an Australian riding record and then announcing his intention to head to Victoria for the spring, champion jockey William Pike has reportedly committed to ride Schabau should he qualify for the 2020 Melbourne Cup.

Looking to potentially book his place in the 2020 Melbourne Cup by gaining a ballot-exempt route via The Group Three Bart Cummings on October 3 which was flagged by trainer Robert Hickmott, Schabau was undefeated from three Australian starts before suffering a tendon injury which sidelined him for more than a year.

He was spelled following a midfield finish on return at Flemington on May 16 this year after comfortably taking out the Listed Roy Higgins Quality in March 2019.

Schabau is currently a $34 chance with Bet365 to win the 2020 Melbourne Cup.
