Kergolay option for Desert
David Elsworth is contemplating sending Desert Skyline over to France later this month for a shot at the Prix Kergorlay.
The one-mile-seven-furlong Group Two at Deauville is one of several options the Newmarket handler is considering for the gelded son of Tamayuz.
After finishing second in a Group Three at Newmarket last month, the three-year-old followed that up with a third on his first start at the top table in the Goodwood Cup.
Elsworth said: "He won't go for the St Leger as he is a gelding and he wouldn't win the St Leger the way Stradivarius beat him.
"He would get plenty of weight in the Melrose and he is unlikely to get in the Ebor. You could think of the Voltigeur as he would be able to run in that.
"I've put him in the Kergorlay. That is in a couple of weeks and that is an option. If I say one thing now I might have changed my mind in a fortnight. Myself and the connections will talk and make a positive decision later.
"To answer the question is Deauville my favoured option, it is the first one for him and if the sun was shining and he was in good form we might run."
