Supremacy Sets Sights on Gimcrack, Morny Off the Table

Group 2 winner Supremacy (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}) is now likely for the G2 Gimcrack S. at York on Friday, after wet weather has taken the G1 Prix Morny off his dance card, Racing Post reported on Tuesday. The G2 Richmond S. winner was one of two in the race for trainer Clive Cox.

“We were looking towards the Morny, but that's not on the agenda any more with the really heavy ground in Deauville,” said Cox to Racing Post. “We're monitoring the weather in York and obviously he'd have a three-pound penalty in the Gimcrack.”

Fellow Cox trainee Nando Parrado (GB) (Kodiac {GB}) will be contesting the Deauville feature following his G2 Coventry S. win at Royal Ascot.

“Nando's a definite runner in France as we speak. We're very pleased with him,” said Cox. “He enjoyed the softer ground in the spring at home and I'd be happy with him encountering such conditions.”
