Conduit team looking forward to next year

CONDUIT could be aimed at the major middle-distance races next season following his emphatic victory in the Ladbrokes St Leger atDoncaster on Saturday.

The Dalakhani colt, who won a handicap at Epsom on Derby day before successfully graduating to Pattern company, was completing a full set of British Classics for trainer Sir Michael Stoute.

"I don't know if he'll run again this season, but the main thing is that he's a nice horse for next year," said Peter Reynolds, racing manager to owners the Ballymacoll stud in Ireland.

"He showed a niceturn of foot and it looked a reasonable Leger. After all he's beaten an Oaks winner (Look Here) and an Irish Derby winner (Frozen Fire).

"He seemsto go on any ground and that's always going to be a bonus. These staying horses and mile and a half races are coming back into fashion which is great news."
