Rohaan might head for the Prix Maurice de Gheest in the hunt for Group One glory after having no luck within the Darley July Cup at Newmarket on Saturday.
The three-year-old gelding is already a winner at Group Two and Group Three degree and gained the Wokingham Handicap below a welter burden, however his first try on the high degree didn’t fairly work out.
Rohaan completed tenth of 19 at Headquarters, 4 and three-quarter lengths behind Starman – however coach David Evans felt nothing went his horse’s method and he has pencilled within the six-and-a-half-furlong showpiece at Deauville on August 8 subsequent.
“I used to be a bit dissatisfied on the day, however I watched it after I obtained again and there is nothing to be dissatisfied about,” stated Evans.
“There have been three totally different teams. He got here throughout, he went again and had lots of daylight two out. It simply wasn’t his race.
“He might go for the Maurice de Gheest. There may not be so many runners and never pretty much as good a discipline as within the July Cup. That was most likely one of the best dash race of the season.”
Evans loved a profitable raid throughout the Channel On Sunday when Choux, owned, like Rohaan, by Chris Kiely Racing, took the Listed Prix Yacowlef at Deauville.
“That is all she wanted actually, to win a Listed race. The proprietor needs to breed from her. A little bit of black kind can be splendid,” stated the Abergavenny coach.
“Rapido Transport have completed a unbelievable job. It is not straightforward taking horses over to France as of late. We dropped her off with them, they took over her over and have completed all the pieces.”
Choux has been highly-tried since she landed a raffle on her debut at Thirsk in Could and a return to France could possibly be on the playing cards.
“She gained first time, then she was over-faced within the Queen Mary, then at Newmarket the bottom was too fast and he or she did not just like the monitor. It was rather a lot weaker race yesterday,” Evans added.
“We’ll have to take a look and see what there may be. She might return over there.”
