“Given the prevailing ground conditions of yielding to soft, I’m afraid we won’t be running,” Bell told At The Races.

“There’s little point in playing away from home on a surface that doesn’t suit.


“It’s not next door. We have to make a decision today as regards shipping. I think it’s a no-brainer to wait and hope they get decent ground.

“He’ll now go for the Prix du Cadran on Arc weekend. That’s the plan and you can get nice ground.

“Every time I’ve had runners over that weekend it’s always been pretty decent ground, so it’s fingers crossed for the same.

“He’s been lightly campaigned and he’s a very easy horse to train and keep fit because he’s so clean winded. He makes life relatively easy.”
