Sun Chariot next for Integral
Last Updated: 04/08/14 2:04pm
The Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket in October is the most likely next port of call for Integral following her odds-on reverse in France on Sunday.
The Sir Michael Stoute-trained four-year-old has enjoyed a superb summer, winning the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot before securing a first Group One triumph in Newmarket's Falmouth Stakes.
She was a hot favourite to strike again at the highest level in the Prix Rothschild at Deauville, but had to make do with minor honours in third behind Andre Fabre-trained duo of Esoterique and Miss France.
Chris Richardson, managing director for Integral's owners Cheveley Park Stud, said: "She's finished third in a Group One, so you can't be too disappointed.
"It wasn't what we were expecting, but those four-runner races can do that to you. It was a tactical affair, they split into two groups and it was all a bit of a muddle.
"Ryan (Moore) said we should just put a line through it, so we'll move on and hopefully head for the Sun Chariot."
