Brave Cirrus up for Cup
Sunday 21 October 2012
Cirrus Des Aigles is likely to have another crack at the Hong Kong Cup in December after giving Frankel a good race in the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.
Trainer Corine Barande-Barbe is keen to give her stable star another chance at the mile and a quarter feature after he was fifth in the race last year.
"He'll probably go to Hong Kong. I saw him after the race, he looked great," the French handler told At The Races.
"My staff told me this morning he has eaten everything and is still happy and enjoying everything. I will give him a week to see how he is."
She also intends to have another go at the Champion Stakes, which he won in 2011, next autumn.
"We will probably come back again next year," she added.
