Ken Condon has raised the possibility of his stable star Romanised running at Ascot on Champions Day, if conditions are suitable.

The four-year-old, who lost out narrowly to Circus Maximus in the Prix du Moulin having already won the Jacques le Marois this season, was initially going to be put away for next season.

However, he is on such good terms with himself connections had mentioned a trip to the Breeders’ Cup, with Condon also putting the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on October 19 into the mix.

Condon and owner Robert Ng appealed the result of the Moulin having lost by a nose after suffering interference, but France Galop officials left the placings unaltered.

“With each day that passes it gets a little easier,” said Condon.

“The horse is back and he’s very well. He may run at Ascot if the ground is suitable for him – if it’s good or better, but that’s probably unlikely.

“He’s had a very good year, right from the Lockinge forward, he’s just been very consistent and has run well every time.

“Obviously he won the Group Three at the Curragh and then Deauville was a great race.”
