Sussex Stakes On The Agenda For Circus Maximus

St James's Palace winner Circus Maximus looks set for the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood where he will meet some familiar faces from his run at Royal Ascot.

The Aidan O'Brien trained three year old landed his first Group 1 success of his career at the royal meeting and it came from a stroke of genius from his trainer dropping him back to a mile from his previous run of 1 mile 4f in the Epsom Derby where he didn't stay as strongly as his trainer originally thought.

Overall the shock move paid off and the son of Galileo is now a huge player in the three year old mile division and his connections are seriously thinking about supplementing him for this contest.

Racing manager to the Niarchos family who own Circus Maximus has said: “The Sussex is still under strong consideration.

“He doesn’t have to be supplemented until the end of next week, and Aidan will make a decision then .

“The horse is in good form, he’s versatile.

“You’d like to think he has plenty of options – but he showed at Ascot that he enjoyed a mile, so that is the plan for the moment – to go for the Sussex and then take it from there.

“As he doesn’t have to be supplemented just yet there’s no final decision, but it looks like it’s going to be a nice race.”

Aidan O'Brien will have six entered into the Group 1 Qatar Sussex Stakes if his three year old Royal winner is entered, he will be joined Never No More, Le Brivido, I Can Fly, Happen and Just Wonderful.

The Sussex Stakes is the feature race on the second day of Glorious Goodwood with the race throwing out a lot of quality horses.

Previous winners of the race have gone on to be successful sires with the likes of Frankel, Canford Cliffs and Kingman all going on to triumph in the race and that could be a big attraction for connections of horses with declaring for this race.
