Simenon set to reappear at Sandown
27 May 2015 18:06
Connections of talented dual-purpose performer Simenon believe the Cantor Fitzgerald Investment Trusts Henry II Stakes at Sandown on Thursday represents an ideal starting point ahead of another tilt at the Ascot Gold Cup.
-
The Willie Mullins-trained eight-year-old takes in the Group Three two-mile contest on his first start since recovering from a stress fracture sustained after winning a Grade Three hurdle at Tipperary in July.
-
Mullins' son and assistant, Patrick, feels the gelding, who finished fourth in last year's Ascot Gold Cup behind Leading Light, is ready to go again.
-
He said: "He's ready to start off his campaign. He did a nice bit of work in the Curragh on Saturday and we're happy with him.
-
"This looks a good starting point for him ahead of another crack at the Ascot Gold Cup, all being well.
-
"Ascot is not that far away and he's as ready as he can be without having had a run.
-
"He had a stress fracture after he won the hurdle race in Tipperary, but we've had no complications since and it will be good to get him going again."
