Romanised will run at Dundalk on Monday before Ken Condon confirms a trip to Hong Kong.

The dual Group One-winner, who won the Minstrel Stakes for a second time in July, has been below his best the last twice – in the Jacques le Marois and the Prix du Moulin.

Romanised is due to head to stud next year – so should he fail to fire at Dundalk, in the conditions race over a mile, it is likely to be his last run.

But Condon has been happy with him and is keen on a last hurrah in the Hong Kong Mile.

“He’s in good shape, and we’ve freshened him up since the Moulin,” said the County Kildare trainer.

“He’ll have plenty of penalties [at Dundalk], but that’s fine, it’s just a long way to go to Hong Kong on the back of his Moulin run.

“We’ll decide whether he goes to Hong Kong or not depending on how he runs at Dundalk. He’s never been on Polytrack before but he’s fresh and well so we’ll see how he gets on.

“If everyone is happy and he gives a good performance then we’ll have a good look at Hong Kong. We’d like to go, but it depends on how he runs on Monday.”
