Monsieur Chevalier on the easy list

Monsieur Chevalier is still on the sidelines and may not be seen until the end of the season at the earliest.

Richard Hannon’s colt had a busy two-year-old campaign and won plenty of fans with his come-from-behind style taking him to six victories from 10 starts including the Weatherbys Super Sprint and the Molecomb Stakes.

His final run was when eighth to Total Gallery in the Prix de l’Abbaye.

Hannon said: “Monsieur Chevalier had a pelvis problem and we’re hoping he’ll be back at the end of the year, otherwise it will be next year.”

The trainer has also provided news on Free Agent, who was mentioned by jockey Ryan Moore as a possible contender for the totesport Ebor after winning a Listed race at York on Saturday.

But Hannon has taken The Queen’s representative out of the race and he may now contest a £20,000 handicap at Glorious Goodwood.
