Award facing crucial gallop

ELUSIVE Award’s participation in Sunday’s Juddmonte Beresford Stakes at the Curragh hinges on a crucial workout this morning.

Andrew Oliver’s juvenile created a big impression when beating what looked a decent field on his debut at Leopardstown and followed up in good style at Dundalk earlier this month.

His County Tyrone handler is keen to test his charge in Group company before the end of the season but is unsure whether to let him take his chance at the weekend.

“We’ll decide whether we’re going to run in the morning after he has had his exercise,” said Oliver.

“If he doesn’t run on Sunday, he might go straight for the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster.”
