Ribchester set for Moulin date

Tue 5 Sep 2017

Richard Fahey has given Ribchester the green light to run in the Prix du Moulin at Chantilly on Sunday.

Fahey had been inclined to hand his stable star a break after his defeat in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwoood, but the Queen Anne winner is in such good heart the Malton handler will let him run again.

"He's not letting me give him a holiday," Fahey told http://www.godolphin.com.

"He's in such great order, we'll take him racing again this weekend, in Paris.

"When he came back from Goodwood, I thought a little break would do him good. I put him on the treadmill for eight days, but he kept telling me he wanted to get back racing again.

"He's a horse, who never blows (after races). I've never trained one like him.

"I thought he probably had a hard race at Goodwood, but he's come out of the Sussex so well physically. The ground won't be a problem -- It is currently soft, and it could get softer.

"But, also, he's broken a track record, so he is at home on ground that is quick, too."
