Prix Maurice de Gheest nominated as option for Caravaggio
17 Jul 2017 | Racingpost.com 

Caravaggio, who lost his unbeaten record when fourth in the July Cup at Newmarket on Saturday, might have his next race in France, Aidan O'Brien revealed on Sunday.

The trainer said: "Caravaggio seemed fine this morning. We'll wait and see how he is in about ten days' time before making plans and we might have a look at the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville next month for him."

He added: "He ran a very good race on Saturday. He ran a bit lazily but we're taking nothing away from the winner, Harry Angel, who was very good."

Run over six and a half furlongs, the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest was won by O'Brien with King Charlemagne in 2001.
