Technician could head again to ParisLongchamp for the Prix Royal-Oak on October 27 after his victory there on Saturday.

The Martyn Meade-trained three-year-old colt bounced again from defeat within the William Hill St Leger to land the Group Two Prix Chaudenay on his favoured gentle floor.

Meade’s preliminary response was to put Technician away for the season, however the horse seems to have taken the race so properly that one other journey to France – this time for a Group One project – could be on the playing cards.

“I was really pleased. I think he put up a great performance. It showed he loved the ground and relished the trip as well,” stated the Manton handler.

“I do not assume he could have finished it any higher and the type during which he did it was actually good, to mow down the opposition in the best way he did.

“He’s come out of the race pretty much as good as ever – bucking and squealing – in order that’s at all times a pleasant signal.

“My preliminary response after he received was he would not run once more, however there’s one other Group One again at Longchamp. We would possibly contemplate it as a result of he appears to be in such good kind.

“I hate over-running him, however he isn’t had that many begins general, so I would possibly contemplate it. It wasn’t in my thoughts, however the best way he is wanting in the mean time, I’d have to have a look at it.”
