Dancing Gemini is lowered in the distance

Dancing Gemini, a talented colt from Roger Teal's stable, is considering a return to a mile distance in hopes of boosting his confidence after a disappointing performance in the Coral-Eclipse. Despite a strong second-place finish in the French 2000 Guineas and a respectable run in the Derby, he struggled in the 10-furlong race at Sandown, finishing last on rain-softened ground.

Teal acknowledged that the decision to run on such ground may not have been the best choice, and is now looking to regroup and drop back to a mile. The Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes at Goodwood on August 2 is being considered for his next race.

Teal emphasised the importance of monitoring Dancing Gemini's condition in the coming week before making a decision. Lowering their sights and aiming for a confidence-boosting race at a slightly lower level is the plan moving forward.

With a focus on getting the colt back on track, Teal is eyeing the Group Three race at Goodwood in August as a potential target. The priority now is to regroup, refocus, and work towards rebuilding Dancing Gemini's confidence and form.
