Orcadian has French engagement

Sunday, October 16, 2005

ORCADIAN could be in line for his first run on foreign soil as he is entered in the Prix Royal Oak at Longchamp on Sunday. This race is over 1 mile 7 furlongs which is further than he has run before but James Eustace is tempted to give it a try. He has an alternative engagement at Newbury on Saturday in the St Simon Stakes. The ground will be a deciding factor as his best form is on soft ground. If it ends up being soft at both courses he could take the bold route and run in France.

AT THE MONEY runs in a nursery for the first time tomorrow at Pontefract over a mile. The ground is currently on the soft side of good and any further rain would be in his favour. He ran respectably in maiden company and he should run well over this extended trip. He is coming back from a break so may just need the run but there is another nursery at Yarmouth towards the end of the season which could be his next target.

James Eustace is sending a squad of 3 horses to the banded meeting at Yarmouth on Tuesday. These are headed by the in form ELM’S SCHOOLBOY who is expected to run well again despite carrying a penalty. He ran quite well on this track before and has improved since then so he must have a good chance. SUNNY TIMES runs in a mile banded race and she will appreciate some cut in the ground. She is a genuine sort and has won a race so would not be without a chance here. MISTER AZIZ makes up the party and is entered in a 6 furlong banded race. He is far happier with some cut in the ground and on his best form could not be ruled out.

CETSHWAYO is entered in a 10 furlong maiden at Nottingham on Wednesday. He has not run for a while so is likely to need the race. HIGH CARD has numerous entries this week and will run wherever ground conditions are in his favour as his best form is on very soft ground.
