Le Romain Makes Low Key Return At Wyong

By Brad Gray

Le Romain had his first public outing at Wednesday’s Wyong trials ahead of the spring with the late four-year-old kept under a tight grip throughout.

Rider Mathew Scorse had the son of Hard Spun travelling sweetly throughout before easing him down across the line in what was nothing more than a pipe opener.

The Kris Lees-trained gelding is one of the most unassuming stars of Australian turf having already collected three Group Ones, and run second in another two. One of those wins was in the autumn when he took the scalp of Chautauqua at Randwick in the Canterbury Stakes (1300m).

It was recently confirmed that Le Romain was one of the horses that applied for the ATC’s slot in The Everest. For now though, Kris Lees will focus on having him ready to resume in the $175,000 Missile Stakes (1200m) on August 5.

“He will kick off a little earlier in the Missile Stakes and then go to Melbourne for the Memsie,” Lees told the Daily Telegraph earlier in the week. “Then if anyone wanted to put him in The Everest we would certainly consider it. I think that would be a nice platform for a race like that.

“If he hasn’t got that (The Everest) option we may even go on to a Makybe Diva and back for the Epsom, so we have options.”

Invincible Gem, who last campaign made the remarkable progression from a Canterbury maiden winner to running a narrow second in the Group One Randwick Guineas, also made a low key return at Wyong’s set of barrier trials finding the line under very little urging from Aaron Bullock.

Meanwhile, English was last night announced as the TAB’s representative in The Everest joining Chautauqua, Fell Swoop, Houtzen and She Will Reign as horses confirmed for the $10m sprint feature to be held at Royal Randwick on October 14.
