Gleneagles & Golden Horn Set For Clash
Dual Classic winner Gleneagles is set to clash with the unbeaten Golden Horn in next week's Juddmonte International at York after trainer Aidan O'Brien ruled out a start in Sunday's Jacques le Marois at Deauville, reports Racing Post. "The plan was for Gleneagles go to Deauville on Sunday but, with the rain that they've had and the forecast, that won't be happening now," O'Brien said. "We've discussed things this afternoon and if the ground at York is good to firm then we will let him take his chance in the Juddmonte International." O'Brien added: "I've always considered Gleneagles a true miler but he needs good, fast ground to be seen at his best therefore York will probably be his next race as we are running out of options with him." Gleneagles is a general 5-2 chance for the Juddmonte with Golden Horn a dominant 8-13 favourite.
