A three-time Group 1 winner, Le Romain returned to racing in typically outstanding form in autumn; winning the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) first-up before beating Chautauqua on the line in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) on March 4th.

Second to Winx in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) on April 1st, the Hard Spun gelding failed to fire when fifteenth in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m), but returned to the paddock after finishing a close second in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) on April 15th.

Underlining the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on August 5th as an ideal first point of call, Lees told AAP that he is pleased with Le Romain’s progress and will look to trial the gelding twice before he makes his competitive return.

“I’ll probably trial him twice before he resumes in the Missile,” Lees told AAP.

“Freshened up for the 1200 metres, I’ve got no doubt he would be very competitive in The Everest.

“He excels at Randwick, and handles both good and wet ground.”

Le Romain has been a strong and consistent performer throughout his entire racing career so far and will return to competition with an outstanding record of six wins and nine minors, from his eighteen starts to date.

Stamping himself as one to watch as a three-year-old during the 2016 Autumn Carnival, Le Romain finished second in each of the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) before storming home to win the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

Resuming in spring for three-consecutive second place finishes in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m), Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) and Group 3 Cameron Handicap (1350m), the gelding out of Mignard ran on well to finish fifth in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) and ended his year with an outstanding win in the Group 1 Cantala Stakes (1600m).

Chautauqua remains a $4.80 favourite in early The Everest betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Irish star Caravaggio ($5.50).

    see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
