Suit attempts Prat double

STRONG Suit attempts to provide Richard Hannon and Richard Hughes with a second successive win in tomorrow’s Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly.

Successful 12 months ago with Dick Turpin, Hannon again has high hopes of securing further Group One honours in France after Strong Suit bounced back to his best at Royal Ascot.

Winner of the Coventry Stakes as a two-year-old, he failed to reproduce that form in his juvenile days.

However, it was found that he was suffering with a breathing problem and, following successful surgery, Strong Suit beat a competitive field in the Jersey Stakes.

That performance was enough to convince owner Julie Wood to supplement the colt into the Prix Jean Prat.
