Big Break sidesteps French trip

Updated: Wednesday, 08 May 2013 13:01

Big Break was the most notable withdrawal at the latest forfeit stage for the Prix Poule d'Essai des Pouliches, the French 1000 Guineas, at Longchamp on Sunday.

Dermot Weld's Group Three winner was taken out of the Newmarket equivalent at the final declaration stage, but connections have intimated she could still go for the Etihad Airways Irish 1000 at the Curragh on May 26.

The only other Irish possible is Hanky Panky, but Aidan O'Brien's filly is set to run at Gowran Park on Wednesday evening.

There are six British-trained entries in the shape of Richard Hannon's Zurigha, Clive Cox's Melbourne Memories, Rae Guest's How's Life, David Elsworth's Cocktail Queen and Waterway Run from Ralph Beckett's yard.

Leading the home contingent are the Mikel Delzangles-trained pair of Flotilla, winner of the Breeeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies' Turf, and Sage Melody.

Henri-Alex Pantall's duo of Prix de la Grotte scorer Kenhope and Kensea, and the Alain de Royer-Dupre-trained Siyenica, who made a successful debut at Longchamp last month, also feature.
