Guineas disappointment Advertise set to take French test
on 06 May 2019
The Group 1-winning son of Showcasing will tackle the Poule d'Essai des Poulains at ParisLongchamp on Sunday

ADVERTISE is set to make a swift return to action in France this weekend following his disappointing display in Saturday’s Qipco 2000 Guineas.

Martyn Meade’s charge won three of his five starts as a juvenile – his only defeats coming at the hands of John Gosden’s star colts Too Darn Hot and Calyx.

The Showcasing colt made his seasonal reappearance in the first classic of the season at Newmarket, but could only finish 15th of the 19 runners under Frankie Dettori.

While unable to fully explain Advertise’s below-par performance, Meade is keen to give him another chance over a mile in the Poule d'Essai des Poulains (French 2000 Guineas) at ParisLongchamp on Sunday.

Meade said: “He’s come out of the race absolutely fine. Nothing has come to light – it just didn’t happen for him on the day.

“It was very disappointing. To say he didn’t have a hard race is an understatement and we learnt nothing really. I think he was maybe a bit ring rusty and hopefully he’ll sharpen up for it.

“All being well he’ll go to France now. There’s no reason not to. Hopefully he’ll have more of a race there and we’ll be better place to assess where we are.”
