Roger Varian specifies there is a possibility his Cazoo St Leger hero Eldar Eldarov will run again this season, as the Carlburg Stables handler starts to fantasize about what his stylish son of Dubawi can accomplish in the future.
A taking victor at Nottingham in his only look as a two-year-old, he made light work of his seasonal launching at Newcastle over a mile and a quarter to head right into Royal Ascot unbeaten. It went to the summertime masterpiece where the three-year-old initially succeeded over 14 furlongs, showing all of his remaining expertise as well as a blistering turn of foot to run down Zechariah and also lift the Queen’s Vase.
Although shedding his unbeaten record when hung back to a mile as well as a fifty percent for the Grand Prix de Paris, the solid appearance of that race was confirmed when Eldar Eldarov went back to a mile as well as six furlongs for the last Classic of the period at Doncaster, winning the Town Moor Group One in imperious style.
He has supposedly taken his Classic exertions well, and also Varian has actually highlighted two feasible choices for the fall– either stepping up to 2 miles for the Long Distance Cup at Ascot on Qipco British Champions Day or head to Paris and also stay at the one-mile-six distance in the Prix Royal-Oak a week later.
However, the Newmarket-based trainer is already looking forward to next year when he will be trained to be a cup equine.
” He remains in good form, he’s appeared of the race very well,” stated Varian. “I wouldn’t rule it out (running again). I have the alternative of running him once more if I wished to, he’s only raced four times this year as well as he had a wonderful break from the Grand Prix de Paris to the Leger.
” He’s only had 5 lifetimes begin and he can run once more also both races to consider is the Long Distance Cup at Ascot or the Prix Royal-Oak at Longchamp. They are not till October and are a week apart, so he’s obtained lots of time and we have actually obtained a lot of time to choose.
” There’s every chance and no reason to assume he will not (make right into a cup horse). His pedigree would certainly suggest he will improve with age and also he’s won twice currently over a mile and also three-quarters appearing like he will be even better when he goes up to 2 miles. So we need to dream concerning him becoming a Cup horse and see how things develop.”
