Real World is expected to make his comeback next month at either ParisLongchamp or Ascot.
He hadn’t been seen since chasing home Baaeed in the Lockinge and Queen Anne Stakes, where the superstar trained by William Haggas defeated him by less than two lengths.
Real World went unbeaten in four races last year, winning the Royal Hunt Cup before taking home the Prix Daniel Wildenstein on Arc weekend. This year, Real World has the choice between that race and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.
Baaeed has decided to run in the 10-furlong Champion Stakes, therefore the QEII is now open to other candidates.
“He’s back in full training, but we have no definite plan. He could go to France or he could go to Champions Day,” said Bin Suroor.
“Baaeed will not be in the QEII and we have won it in the past of course”
“We wanted to run him in the Eclipse, but he was coughing that week and we’ve had to bring him back slowly. It has taken a long time to get him back to his best”.
“Because he’s so good, we don’t want to rush him. As soon as he’s ready to run we’ll find the right race for him”
“He won the Daniel Wildenstein in France last year over a mile, hopefully that or the QEII.”
