Francis Graffard will be looking for soft ground for The Revenant’s next race after another solid effort in unsuitable conditions.
The Prix d’Ispahan at ParisLongchamp on May 30 or the Queen Anne Stakes at Ascot on June 15 will likely be the six-year-old’s next stopover if there are enough cuts in the ground.
Last season’s Queen Elizabeth II Stakes winner was weighed down with a Group 1 penalty for his two starts this season, but was not beaten far despite the situation being called good.
Graffard was satisfied with The Revenant’s effort by finishing fourth ahead of Duhail in the Prix du Muguet at Saint-Cloud on Saturday.
“He came out of the race well,” said the Chantilly coach.
“He had his Group 1 penalty and the pitch was too fast, but he was in good shape and he had a very good race.
“He entered Queen Anne and he will be enrolled in Isfahan, but I think it will be good to have his soft earth wherever he goes.”
