Gleneagles in line for Deauville


Aidan O'Brien would like to run dual 2000 Guineas winner Gleneagles in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville next weekend.

The three-year-old was a late defector from the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood as the ground was not deemed fast enough and any rain in the lead up to the race would see him staying at home.

The Galileo colt holds an entry in the 10-furlong Juddmonte International at York but he has not yet raced over anything further than a mile.

"We are looking at Deauville (Prix Jacques le Marois) and will be watching the weather forecast this week. If they don't get rain we will look hard at going there," said O'Brien.

"He was ready to run in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and is in good form."
