Godolphin consider international plans

Godolphin could run both Cherry Mix and Echo Of Light in Tuesday’s Juddmonte International Stakes at York.

Godolphin could run both Cherry Mix and Echo Of Light in Tuesday’s Juddmonte International Stakes at York.

The pair are among 10 horses left in the Group One event over 10 furlongs and with his string in such good form at present, trainer Saeed bin Suroor is keen to let both horses take their chances.

However, he is hoping for some rain before the big race if Cherry Mix is to try to follow up his recent Group One success in Germany.

“We would like him to run in the Juddmonte but ideally we would like to see some cut in the ground for him,” he said.

The trainer is hoping Echo Of Light can return to his best form after disappointing in the Sussex Stakes last time.

“We were not happy with him at Goodwood. He was far too keen for his own good but he came out of the race well,” added bin Suroor.

“I am convinced he’s a good horse with a great turn of foot, but he needs to be taught how to relax.”
