O'Brien Leaning Towards Arc With George

O’Brien Leaning Towards Arc With George

Order Of St George winning at Curragh on Sunday ©Healy Racing Photos Aidan O’Brien said it is “more likely” Order Of St George will run in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe rather than the Emirates Melbourne Cup. The grand five-year-old stayer won the Irish St Leger for a second time at the Curragh on Sunday and is now in the frame to contest the big race at Chantilly, in which he finished third last year, on October 1. Order Of St George would have to carry top weight in the Melbourne Cup on November 7, but the Ballydoyle handler at this stage has a preference for the Arc. O’Brien told the Herald Sun: “We haven’t decided yet between the Arc and the Melbourne Cup for Order Of St George but it’s probably more likely that he will go for the Arc.”

Cheveley Park The Likely Option For Clemmie

Clemmie won at Newmarket in July ©Healy Racing Photos Clemmie could be rerouted to Newmarket for the Cheveley Park Stakes after she missed an intended assignment on Irish Champions Weekend. The gifted youngster was withdrawn from the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday as the ground became too testing. She is now under consideration to step up to the top table at Newmarket on September 30. Trainer Aidan O’Brien told the Irish Independent : “We think Clemmie will have no problems over further but so far she’s been at six furlongs and we just had to avoid that bad ground.” Compatriot Lightening Quick, a first-time-out scorer at Leopardstown on Saturday, could join Clemmie in the line-up. Trainer Ger Lyons said: “She may go to the Cheveley Park, all going well.”

Newmarket On The Agenda For Beckford

Beckford ©Healy Racing Photos Beckford is likely to head for the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket on September 30 following his fine second in the National Stakes at the Curragh. Gordon Elliott’s charge was sent off the 6-4 favourite for Sunday’s seven-furlong contest but proved no match for impressive winner Verbal Dexterity, a horse he had beaten two starts earlier at the Curragh. The son of Bated Breath now looks set for a return to six furlongs on the Rowley Mile as the Cullentra House handler continues his quest for a first Group One Flat winner. Elliott told Press Association Sport: “I’d say he just got outstayed on that ground but we were very happy with him. “It was a good run and I’d say we’d probably go for the Middle Park now.”
