Arc hopeful Saddex switches trainers

SADDEX, as low as 25-1 in some lists for the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, is being targeted at the Longchamp showpiece, in which he finished sixth last year, but has left trainer Peter Rau to join German compatriot Werner Baltromei.

The son of Sadler's Wells has not been seen in public since beating Pressing to land his second Group 1 victory in the Premio Presidente della Repubblica in Rome in May.

He was to have had his final Arc prep in last Sunday's Grosser Preis von Baden, but was forced to miss that assignment with a minor problem.

"He has had a setbackbut the aim is to train him for the Arc if possible," said Baltromei on Wednesday.

Saddex is owned by Stall Avena, who have also moved their other two horses from Rau to Baltromei, including Manduras, a four-year-old half-brother to Manduro.
