Condon 'thrilled' with Romanised form
Ken Condon claims Romanised "is in great form" ahead of Sunday's Prix Jacques Le Marois on the back of his victory at the Curragh.
The four-year-old was winless in six races since his victory in last year's Irish 2,000 Guineas when he triumphed in the Minstrel Stakes at the Curragh on July 20.
And Condon feels Romanised is now in a good place to challenge the favourite and Coronation Stakes winner Watch Me in the Group One contest at Deauville this weekend.
Speaking ahead of the trip to France, the County Kildare handler said: "Romanised is in great form. I'm thrilled with him and it is all systems go for France on Sunday. I think the win at the Curragh last time has given him huge confidence and I'm very happy with where I am him right now."
Billy Lee guided Romanised to the win at the Curragh and will again take the reins at Deauville on Sunday.
Condon added: "Billy gets on great with him and he keeps the ride. He's got to know him well and does all the work at home on him too. Niall [McCullagh] heads over for Success Days in the same race."
