Success Days bounced back to form in the Group 2 Sky Bet York Stakes and Condon is hoping he will get his favoured soft conditions at Leopardstown next month

KEN CONDON’s Success Days is likely to make his next start at Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown next month.

Condon’s five-year-old bounced back to winning ways when landing the Group 2 Sky Bet York Stakes less than a fortnight ago. 


Success Days is at his best with cut in the ground and Condon is hoping he will have his favoured conditions at Leopardstown.

“He’s come back from York very well and we were obviously delighted with him on the day. He was very tough and wasn’t for passing,” said the Rathbride-based trainer.

Success Days was not for passing at York on ground he relished

“He’s well entered up and obviously the ground will be an important factor in where we go.

“Irish Champions Weekend is very important for us at home so as long as the ground is suitable, I would say that will be his next stop.

“I don’t think he’ll run in the mile-and-a-half Group 3 (Enterprise Stakes) with the penalty, so it will either be the Boomerang Stakes over a mile or the Irish Champion Stakes over a mile and a quarter.”

Condon is also considering Champions Day at Ascot on October 21 for his grey, adding: “You’d like to think you’d have a fair chance of getting the ground in the third weekend in October and he’ll be entered for the Champion Stakes and the QEII (Queen Elizabeth II Stakes).

“I think a mile and a quarter suits him well, but I wouldn’t rule out going back to a mile if we got very soft ground.

“I’d say he’s more likely to go down in trip than up to a mile and a half, anyway.”
