Racing Update: Given he’s French bred, we have moved him to his native France since his last run, given the lofty owners’ premiums and prize money that is afforded, the other side of the English Channel. He earned a paltry £5208 for his Newcastle win in January, which was the final straw for us, for his GB career, France beckoned. He’s the sort of horse who could earn anything between €20,000 to €100,000 this season, in France. He’s gone to, the up-and-coming trainer Jérome Reynier, who trains a number of top-class horses including Royal Julius. We’ve been most impressed by his race placement and selection since we’ve started sending him some of our French breds over the last 12 months. For example, with the 70 ish rated Lexington Rebel, he’s mopped up €25,000 in earnings since he arrived last Autumn. So, with the 90 ish rated Ventura Lightning (who we feel has a little wiggle room off that rating) we could be in for a lucrative season under the French regime. French races are generally shown, these days, on the Sky Sports Racing channel or via France-Galop. With a change of scene too, he could just make up into a listed or Group 3 type performer. He’s already operated at this level over here. He loves good or easy ground and 1200m(6f) or 1300 (6.5f) races. TIMEFORM RATED: 97
