Sunway`s goal is the Prix du Jockey Club

Sunway's goal is still the Prix du Jockey Club, even if David Menuisier's top colt lost its trial for the Chantilly Classic at Saint-Cloud lately.

Always respected greatly by his connections, he placed second in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster last year, besting 2000 Guineas runner-up Rosallion. He then concluded his two-year campaign with a Group One victory at Saint-Cloud's Criterium International.

The Galiway son returned to the site of his best hour for the Group Three Prix Greffulhe after blowing away the cobwebs at ParisLongchamp early in the 2024 season.

Despite losing by a nose in what is considered to be a crucial French Derby trial, Sunway's handler has stated the colt is still expected to run in the 10-furlong race on June 2.

“He has come out of his race at Saint-Cloud really well and we are going to prepare him for the Prix du Jockey Club now and hopefully he can keep improving. Chantilly is still the plan,” said Menuisier.

The four-year-old placed third in her stable debut in Lingfield's Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes, so the handler is eager to see whether he can win at the group level with Sirona this season.

The Frenchman, who is located in Sussex, is considering having open company as soon as possible because her alternatives for her own sex are restricted. The Soldier Hollow's daughter may even go to Haydock.
