No Champion run for Silverware


Pascal Bary has ruled out bringing Silverware to Leopardstown for the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes.

Winner of the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud at the start of the month, Silverware is entered in the September 10 showpiece but Bary has decided to keep him in France for a crack at the Prix Foy as part of his build-up to the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

"I am very happy with this horse. He looks well and is having a very good summer," Bary said.

"We want to go to the Arc, but he will have one more run before that.

"The Prix Foy is an ideal next race for him as it will be easier for him to stay in Chantilly (instead of running in Ireland).

"I think he has improved a lot this year and is a lot better four-year-old than he was a three-year-old - he is a lot easier to ride this season."
