Prix Morny aim for Rajasinghe

Rajasinghe on his way to winning the Coventry Stakes

Rajasinghe is set to head to France for Group One success in the Darley Prix Morny at Deauville on August 20.

Connections of the Richard Spencer-trained colt are keen to go to the Normandy coast with the Coventry Stakes winner and give him the opportunity to return to wining ways after he lost his unbeaten record in the July Stakes.

However, finishing third was no disgrace under a 3lb penalty for his Group Two triumph at Royal Ascot.

"He's definitely going to go for the Prix Morny, subject to him being healthy and the ground not being too soft," said Phil Cunningham, of owners Rebel Racing.

"I was hoping a few more might have run at Goodwood so the field would be smaller in France but there's nothing we can do about it.

"It's just typical that historically this race has a small field yet when we have one it might be quite big. I think there was 28 at the first entry stage.

"If there are any ground issues then he could go to the Gimcrack but he deserves to run in a Group One now, his form is working out well."

Karl Burke's duo Havana Grey and Unfortunately, Aidan O'Brien's September and Clemmie and Royal Ascot winner Different League are among the entries.
