Older Comments about the 2012 Juddmonte International (G1)...

Two days ago, Racing Post.com reported that Cirrus Des Aigles WILL NOT take on Frankel in the G1 Juddmonte International Stakes at York on August 22nd. The race to be Frankel's first go at 10f. The connections of Cirrus Des Aigles said the infection he developed awhile back on one of his ankles still hasn't healed yet to the point they feel he's ready for the Juddmonte International. Cirrus Des Aigles hasn't raced since finishing 2nd to the filly Golden Lilac in the G1 Prix D'Ispahan back in May. The injury to Cirrus Des Aigles had already previously forced him to miss possible dates in both the G1 Grand Prix De Saint-Cloud and the G1 King George. Then yesterday, AtTheRaces.com reported that trainer John Gosden has said that Nathaniel will also likely be an absentee for the Juddmonte International, too. Saying that his connections are leaning more toward sending him to Leopardstown in early September for the G1 Irish Champion Stakes. I think there was a lot of excitement about the possibility of rematch between Frankel and Nathaniel given that Frankel had beaten Nathaniel only a 1/2 length in what was the very first race of both's career back in 2010. So assuming that Cirrus Des Aigles and Nathaniel are both out of the JIS, it looks like Coolmore would possibly have the strongest hand to left to play against Juddmonte Farms and Frankel. Since they still have both St Nicholas Abbey, Imperial Monarch, and Daddy Long Legs all still entered in the JIS as of now.
