Most Improved is set to make his eagerly-awaited reappearance in Sunday’s Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly, trainer Brian Meehan has confirmed.

One of the talking horses over the winter, he was ruled out of his intended comeback in the Craven Stakes and also the 2000 Guineas through injury.

He held an entry in the Heron Stakes at Sandown on Thursday but Meehan has aimed straight for the top with the Lawman colt, who has done all his racing to date over seven furlongs.

A statement on said: “Brian Meehan confirms that Most Improved will run in Sunday’s Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) over 10 and a half furlongs at Chantilly.

Not The Chosen One

“His preparation for the 2000 Guineas was interrupted so he could not make the Classic, but he is now back in very good form and working well.

“The French Derby was always on the agenda as a possible post-Guineas target, and it makes even more sense as he is French-bred and eligible for owners’ premiums.

“Mikael Barzalona is the chosen jockey for Sunday’s race.”

However, the Meehan team later changed their riding plans, tweeting: “Most Improved to be ridden by Kieren Fallon in the French Derby.”
