Ryan Moore to ride Eminent in Deauville clash with Brametot

Fri 11 Aug 2017

Martyn Meade has snapped up Ryan Moore to partner stable star Eminent in the Prix Guillaume d'Ornano at Deauville on Tuesday.

The son of Frankel made a flying start to his three-year-old campaign with victory in the Craven Stakes at Newmarket and has since finished sixth in the 2000 Guineas, fourth in the Epsom Derby and fifth in the Coral-Eclipse.

He has enjoyed a mini-break and is set to drop to Group Two level in France, although he is likely to find dual French Classic winner Brametot lying in wait.

Meade said: "He's had a little bit of a break and we're very happy with him at home.

"Hopefully we get some good ground and a small field and it will act as a confidence booster for him, that's the idea. I believe Brametot is running and he'd be the one you'd be worried about, obviously, but you can't be afraid of one horse.

"Ryan knows the horse, having in ridden in races against him. We were looking at getting a French jockey, but Ryan was available, so that worked out well and we're looking forward to it."
