Eaves sweet on Foret option

Brando (nearside) could be stepped up in trip

Tom Eaves would be happy to ride Brando over seven furlongs after his clear-cut win in the Prix Maurice de Gheest on Sunday.

Trainer Kevin Ryan has mooted a crack at the Prix de la Foret at Chantilly on October 1 for the five-year-old – and Eaves is keen on the idea.

He said: "It was a great buzz. We got in a nice rhythm and he had a smooth passage through.

"I was comfortable on him, really. It was a great run (when third in the July Cup at Newmarket) and he was always going to come on for that.

"He was a lot tighter on Sunday and I was confident. Things had to slot right and luckily they did.

"We were talking about that (the Foret). The way he stayed, you'd like to give him a go over seven (furlongs).

"Tangerine Trees (his first Group One winner) was brilliant but I really appreciated that on Sunday.

"It was a great feeling."
