Ro­man­ised lines up a date in Deauville

The Racing Paper - - News -

KEN CON­DON is tar­get­ing the Jacque Le Marois at Deauville in Au­gust for Ro­man­ised fol­low­ing his poor show at Royal As­cot.

There were high hopes for the three-year-old going into the St James’ Palace Stakes at As­cot last week af­ter his vic­tory in the Ir­ish 2000 Guineas.

How­ever, Ro­man­ised failed to spark and had to set­tle for sev­enth spot out of ten run­ners be­hind win­ner With­out Pa­role, with Con­don feel­ing the ground might have been a lit­tle too quick.

He feels the track at Deauville is sim­i­lar to the Cur­ragh and that will be the next port of call for Ro­man­ised.

Con­don said: “We prob­a­bly won’t go to Good­wood, hope­fully he’ll go for the Jacque Le Marois. The straight mile at Deauville might repli­cate the Cur­ragh as close as we can, and it’s only the sec­ond meet­ing of a month-long Fes­ti­val so the ground should be nice.

“I don’t think Good­wood suits his style as he is slowly away and it's hard to make up ground there.”
