Round Tower Success For War Front’s Intelligence Cross
Monday, August 29, 2016 RSS Feeds

With his much-vaunted stable companion Caravaggio (Scat Daddy) potentially missing from the autumn action after meeting a setback, Intelligence Cross showed why he could prove a more than able deputy with an emphatic success here. Just a half-length behind Mehmas (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) when second in the G2 July S. at Newmarket July 7, he was third behind that rival and Blue Point (Ire) (Shamardal) in the G2 Richmond S. again over this trip at Goodwood three weeks later before being ruled out of the G2 Gimcrack S. at York’s Ebor meeting due to rain-softened ground. Showing more pace than on his previous runs to suggest he has made strides forward since his British forays, Intelligence Cross was always travelling strongly in second and when Seamie Heffernan gave the command he strode to the front with a quarter mile to race and into the clear. “He missed a couple of pieces of work being over at York and so we are expecting him to come on for this,” the Ballydoyle trainer explained. “We wanted to get a run into him ahead of the [G1] Middle Park [S. at Newmarket Sept. 24] and it was unusually beautiful ground here, so we let him take his chance. The plan is to go straight to Newmarket, as Caravaggio had a setback 10 days ago and tweaked a muscle. He’ll be happy going there if the ground is nice.”
