Cracksman 'looks wonderful' as connections plan Ganay return

Cracksman Owner Anthony Oppenheimer has explained the reasons behind deciding not to send Cracksman to Dubai.
Along with trainer John Gosden, Oppenheimer had been wondering whether to start his campaign in the Sheema Classic on World Cup night.
However, after plenty of discussion the decision has been made to start him off in the Prix Ganay at Longchamp on April 29.
"I think the Dubai race just comes a little bit early in the year, this horse will have a long programme, if he completes it," said Oppenheimer.
"It's a long way out to Dubai and to take him out there, have him 100 per cent ready for that, it makes it an awfully long season.
"I've seen the horse today and he looks wonderful, but the Prix Ganay seems to be the most sensible race to go for."
