Juddmonte International For Criterion
Criterion is set to have one more UK start in the Gr1 Juddmonte International Stakes (2000m) at York on 19 August before returning home to Australia, reports ANZ Bloodstock News. “He’s just having an easy week or two now and will then be built up for the International,” trainer David Hayes said. “If Chad [jockey Chad Schofield] is still there in England he’ll probably ride him, otherwise we’ll work something out later.” The 4YO showed he could be competitive against the world's best when finishing a brave fifth behind Irish star Free Eagle in last week's Gr1 Prince Of Wales's Stakes (2000m) at Royal Ascot.
