Muir sees Point in Abbaye prep
Stepper Point could have a dress rehearsal over Longchamp's five-furlong track ahead of a crack at the Qatar Prix de l'Abbaye on Arc day.
Trainer William Muir is set to run his sprinter in either the Qatar Prix du Petit Couvert on September 15 or the Dubai International Airport World Trophy seven days later before Europe's premier autumn dash.
Muir was delighted with the Kyllachy colt's victory in the Beverley Bullet on Saturday and believes the four-year-old is at his peak at this stage of the season.
"We went there fancying our chances and he did it really well," the Lambourn handler told At The Races.
"He loves this time of year. As a two-year-old he was very good from this time of year onwards.
"He'll carry on and we've got choices of the Dubai Duty Free at Newbury or the Prix Couvert at Longchamp. He'll go one for one of those two and then we will head for the Abbaye."
