    Nice of him to mention it really.
    “We are trying something new by sending Burning Victory on the long boat (Dublin to Cherbourg) for the Prix De Croix-Luizet Handicap over 2m 1f. She will have top-weight and will be ridden by Franck Blondel who finished second on Sealiway in the French Derby last Sunday. She has a much more favourable handicap mark in France than in Ireland so we felt it was worth having a go here. She has been in good form at home and hopefully she will run a big race.”
    Lyon 11th June.

    Thanks for that Sam, it’s definitely an interesting one and I can’t see
    willie sending her over just for the sea air. Obviously well handicapped
    and although 11/8 is normally a bit on the short side for me but I reckon
    it’s worth the effort so I’ve had a bit on :good:

    G’ luck big G.
    I’d say that going to the effort of booking the french lad says they are giving it a serious go. Obviously getting a decent jockey from Ireland or England right now is a non starter with big racing on here. 11/8 is smallish but to be fair should be clear favourite. I’ve put it down on my thread as a max win. My first. We’ll see.
    Lots can go wrong with these long distance travel efforts, but fingers crossed this team can bring home the bacon.

    Having watched the video it was all too easy for burning victory.
    It’ll be interesting to find out the rationale for going to all the logistics of winning this prize. Costs versus returns.
    It was a great return for the French bred horse and as Willie is always purchasing horses from France, the trip was very fruitful.
