Postponed On Track For Coronation

Postponed | Racing Post

Postponed (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) pleased his trainer Roger Varian during a gentle workout over the Epsom turf on Tuesday ahead of his intended next target the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Cup on Derby Day June 4. “You would have seen by his work he didn’t do anything crazy this morning, it was a sensible work-out but it gave him a feel of the contours of the track,” said Varian. “He is a very good work horse. He carries a lot of condition and would go through the motions at home very well, but you have got to work him hard to give him a work out. I love just bringing him for a day out,” added the trainer. Postponed is a perfect two for two for Varian since he inherited the 5-year-old from Luca Cumani and his last victory in the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan in March suggested he would be a major player in the top open middle distance events this year.

One potential opponent for Postponed that may still be in the mix for the Coronation is Found (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). The Coolmore filly was beaten by Fascinating Rock (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at The Curragh on Sunday and Coolmore’s UK representative Kevin Buckley commented, “I’ve just heard from Ballydoyle that Aidan is very happy with her after her run. She has come through some light exercise in good shape and the possibility of her coming to Epsom in ten days time will be discussed this week.”
