Fahey keen to go on Gold hunt
Ribchester is poised to have another crack at Galileo Gold in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville on Sunday.
Ribchester: Heading to France for next start
The Royal Ascot winner finished third behind Hugo Palmer’s star colt in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and occupied the same position when he only narrowly succumbed to The Gurkha in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.
With Sussex Stakes runner-up Galileo Gold on course for the French Group One, trainer Richard Fahey is happy to let Ribchester renew rivalry.
The Malton handler told The Daily Telegraph: “I’m very, very happy, couldn’t really be any happier.
“He did a little-half speed work, a leg stretch rather than anything more serious, and he is as fit as a bean, anyway.
“I don’t think much went wrong at Goodwood and we’re looking forward to having another crack.
“The track shouldn’t make any difference. I think this is a proper Group One horse and hopefully he’ll become that sooner, rather than later.”
