Menuisier has two options for Solario Stakes

David Menuisier has entered both Devil’s Point and Sunway for the Virgin Bet Solario Stakes at Sandown on Saturday, but is unlikely to saddle both.

Devil’s Point finished fifth on his debut at the Esher venue before impressing at Ffos Las, while Sunway bolted up on his Sandown introduction before disappointing and finishing lame in the Pat Eddery Stakes at Ascot.

Menuisier said: “They are both in good form and they will both be suited by the track I would say, but the ground will be key to the decision we make.

“Devil’s Point will need a bit of cut and if it looked like we were missing that he would probably go to France or wait for the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.

“If the rain didn’t come we would probably run Sunway as he is probably less ground dependent.

“They are both entered in the Prix La Rochette the next day at Longchamp so we could have one at Sandown and one at Longchamp. There are bags of options for them both.

“We feel they are both really good horses. Wherever they go we hope they run well.

“We are not going to put too much pressure on them this season as we hope they will turn into nice three-year-olds next year.”
