Ribchester Back Out On Sunday

By Daithi Harvey

Richard Fahey intends to let Ribchester (Ire) (Iffraaj {GB}) take his chance in the G1 Prix du Moulin at Chantilly on Sunday. The brilliant colt met with an unexpected reverse when second to Here Comes When (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}) in the G1 Qatar Sussex S. at Goodwood early August and Fahey is sufficiently impressed with the signs the Godolphin colt is giving him at home to let him tog out and seek his fourth Group 1 win. “He’s in such great order, we’ll take him racing again this weekend, in Paris,” Fahey said. “When he came back from Goodwood, I thought a little break would do him good. I put him on the treadmill for eight days, but he kept telling me he wanted to get back racing again. I thought he probably had a hard race at Goodwood, but he’s come out of the Sussex so well physically. The ground won’t be a problem — It is currently soft, and it could get softer.” Ribchester’s second placing at Goodwood saw his prizemoney haul go beyond the £2m mark.
