Encouraging Return by Le Romain
Meanwhile, trainer Kris Lees said he was delighted with the first-up performance of Le Romain in Saturday's Gr2 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick. The three-time Gr1 winner remains on track for the inaugural $10 million The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick on 14 October, following his encouraging second behind classy stable-mate Invincible Gem in the $200,000 sprint feature. "He was exposed the whole way which we thought he might be," Lees told Sky Racing. "His condition probably just gave out the final 50 metres but he's in for a good preparation."
