Clive Cox's exciting sprinter Supremacy could be aimed at the York Ebor meeting after his handler has scrapped plans to travel to France this weekend for the Group One Prix Morny.
Supremacy at Glorious Goodwood laid down a big gauntlet for the rest of the juvenile sprinting division by landing the Group Two Richmond Stakes by four lengths, following in the footsteps of his sire Mehmas.
This came on just his third run in his career, where before he had landed a nice event at Windsor but now Clive Cox is dreaming big with this pacy youngster.
The Gimcrack stakes has thrown out some superb winners during its existence and it looks like it will again this year with the two year old currently the 9/4 to take the spoils.
(Credit Racing Post) The trainer said: "We were looking towards the Morny, but that's not on the agenda any more with the really heavy ground in Deauville.
"We're monitoring the weather in York and obviously he'd have a 3lb penalty in the Gimcrack."
We will have to officially wait until Wednesday to see if the colt is declared for the event but with no other alternative springing to mind after his withdrawal from the Prix Morny, it looks the most obvious option.
"I couldn't be more pleased with Supremacy, it was a tremendous performance at Goodwood and he's a high-class individual," said Cox.
"He's clearly at home on a quicker surface and we're yet to explore anything easier."
