Trainer Charlie Appleby believes Loxley could be in line for a run in the Qatar Prix Niel at Longchamp next month. The son of New Approach managed to claim the Grand Prix de Deauville on Sunday and there are high hopes for the talented runner going forward.
Appleby has been speaking with Loxley’s owners and a trip to Longchamp could well be on the cards in three weeks’ time.
“I have spoken to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed about Loxley, and he has agreed he should have an entry in the Group Two Prix Niel at Longchamp, in which he could run without a penalty,” Appleby told www.godolphin.com.
“If he is going to run in the Arc, then he would have to be supplemented,” Appleby added. “We will review the situation after the Prix Niel. We will know exactly where we are at that point.”
