French Guineas Target For Miss Amulet


Miss Amulet | Coady

Trainer Ken Condon is looking ahead to next spring's G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches with Miss Amulet (Ire) (Sir Prancealot {Ire}) after Doreen Tabor's G2 Lowther S. winner ran a fine race in third in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

“The mile was always a question mark, but to my eyes she got it well, and we were delighted with her,” said Condon. “She's had a busy season, but she's retained her form well, and there is plenty to look forward to next year.

“I think her main aim early on will be the French Guineas–we think that might suit her better. I know all the Guineas are run over a mile, but some tracks are stiffer than others. The winner the other night [Aunt Pearl] is obviously very good–she set sensible fractions, and we knew then it would be difficult to come from behind, but we were delighted with how our filly finished off and put a bit of daylight between the fourth, who won the Prix Morny [Campanelle].

“She's been on the go since the first week racing resumed. She's been to England twice–that was her eighth run, so credit to her, she has exceeded all expectations. We know if she doesn't stay a mile we have the option of coming back in trip, but I had a quick exchange with Michael Tabor after the race and I think the French Guineas is where we are going.”
