Guineas favourite Expert Eye firmly in National Stakes picture

Fri 25 Aug 2017

Sir Michael Stoute's hugely impressive juvenile Expert Eye could have his next start in Ireland.

The Acclamation colt shot to the head of the betting for next year's 2000 Guineas with a stunning display in the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

Andrea Atzeni could barely believe the ease with which his mount cruised to the front, winning by a comfortable four and a half lengths.

While it is not 100 per cent confirmed as yet, the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes on September 10 is very much on the radar.

Owner Khalid Abdullah's racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said: "Expert Eye is in very good form, he came out of Goodwood in fine form.

"As for where next, it is not set in stone but we are very much having a look at the National Stakes."

Grimthorpe also confirmed that Enable has come out of her stroll in the Yorkshire Oaks in fine form.
