Late surge home for Walker’s Ae­o­lus

The Herald - Sport - - SHINTY -

ED Walker may con­sider a tilt at the Prix Mau­rice de Gheest for Ae­o­lus af­ter the four-year-old pro­vided the high­light of a re­mark­able four-timer for the New­mar­ket trainer in the Chipchase Stakes at New­cas­tle on Satur­day.

“He might run next Sun­day in a Group Three in France (Prix de Ris-Orangis at Maisons-Laf­fitte), but he’s so ground de­pen­dent,” said Walker.

“We’ll prob­a­bly make an en­try in the Mau­rice de Gheest for him as well.”

Walker awaits the hand­i­cap­per’s re­ac­tion af­ter Bushcraft made it three wins from three starts since re­turn­ing from a 21-month ab­sence.

The four-year-old was the other leg of a New­cas­tle dou­ble for Walker tak­ing the six-fur­long hand­i­cap in good style.

The trainer then went on to have a brace at Don­caster’s evening meet­ing.
