Cadran Defence Likely For Princess Zoe

Group 1 winner Princess Zoe (Ger) (Jukebox Jury {Ire}) will skip the Sept. 10 G2 Doncaster Cup S. on Friday and instead point towards the G1 Prix du Cadran on Oct. 2. A winner of the Cadran in 2020, the grey mare will not get her required soft ground at Doncaster. Fourth in the Oct. 25 G1 Prix Royal-Oak after her Cadran heroics, Princess Zoe ran ninth in a listed race at Cork on Apr. 3 and improved to fourth at that level at Gowran Park on May 5. A distant second in the G1 Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in June, she was last seen filling that position again in the G3 Irish St Leger Trial S. at The Curragh on Aug. 13.

“I don't think she'll be going to Doncaster,” said trainer Tony Mullins. “There's no rain. She's in good form. She's going to Longchamp for the Prix du Cadran. It was a great day last year and she should get her ground there again.”
