The Antarctic Wheel returns for Jean-Luc Lagardere

The Qatar Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere (Grand Criterium, G1) was held over a mile over a five-year period from 2015-19, but this top-tier junior award at ParisLongchamp has since become back to its traditional seven-way trip.

The importance of excess hair length is more apparent in juveniles, and hypothesized that South Pole will be absent on October 2 if Lagardere still has a mile race.

Even on the shorter trip, there’s certainly controversy over whether trainee Aidan O’Brien was favored on his first attempt at this distance. That is partly due to the fact that his full brother, the excellent sprinter Battaash , barely stay five feathers at once. In his favor is the ability to settle better than his quirky brother, but this is also a quick change since he only ran eight days ago in the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes (G1) .

Gotta admit his second best attempt to settle down Black beard that day deserves an upgrade as he blew the starter.

O’Brien said: “He was on a trip and tried on seven feathers for the first time. “He can slowly go far so longer distances could help him in that respect. We are happy that he is at Middle Park, and he seems to have come out of the race well.”

Coaches dominated the turn of the millennium with five wins in six years from 2001 to 2006 but hit the target with just one of 11 runners-up in the past decade, 6-5. . Happy in 2017, even though Gleneagles was demoted to third when finishing first after his 2014 ministry was interpreted as harsh management.

Antarctic has run three times more than anything else on the field and is vulnerable to a less exposed opponent who is better suited for the trip.

The selection of the French brigade is Breizh’s sky and Tigrais separated by a shorter end in the Prix la Rochette (G3) than seven hairs last time and very difficult to separate.

Regarding Breizh Sky, coach Alessandro Botti said: “He was just running again from halftime the day before and might have been a bit unlucky when Christophe (Soumillon) was leading too soon. However. , he has shown some quality. It will be. It is very difficult to win with two very good foreign horses there, but we have been thinking about this race for a long time, and I hope. he can be lined up.”

However, the feeling this could be one for the away team. One of only three minors to be coached by Johnny Murtagh with the future classic contest, Shartash suffered a nasty period finishing third in the Vincent O’Brien National Stakes (G1) September 11 Goffs at Curragh last time and could have come close to victory with more luck. That proves he gets seven feathers and stall 2 is a positive.

Murtagh commented: “He has good order and walks very well. “Things went well in the lead-up to the race, and I think he’ll handle the ground. We’re hopeful.”

Prix ​​Jean-Luc Lagardere is a Breeders ‘Cup Challenge for Juvenile Grass Breeders Cup’ qualifier on November 4 (G1T) at Keeneland.
