Martyn Meade eager for Royal Ascot challenge with Eminent this year

Thu 25 Jan 2018

Martyn Meade is already looking forward to a long-term target of Royal Ascot with Eminent.

The Frankel colt enjoyed a highly-creditable three-year-old campaign, winning the Craven Stakes before finishing sixth in the 2000 Guineas and fourth in the Derby, before landing a Group Two in France and running a fine race when third in the Irish Champion Stakes.

Meade is hoping for even more in his four-year-old career.

He said: "He is fine and is back in work. He might run before the Prince of Wales's and could run in something like the Lockinge, but his goal is Royal Ascot.

"I think 10 furlongs is where he is going to be best this year and the idea is to keep him down that route."

Taking high rank for Meade in his three-year-old team this year is Chilean, who was last seen finishing sixth in the Racing Post Trophy.

He added: "He has done very well and we might do what with did with Eminent last year and run him in the Craven to see if he is good enough for the Guineas.

"I don't think he was completely at his best in the Racing Post Trophy and there is more to come."
