Voice in full cry for Melbourne
Connections of Forgotten Voice are keen to run him in the Emirates Melbourne Cup at Flemington on November 5.
Trained by Nicky Henderson and owned by former British Horseracing Authority chairman Paul Roy, the versatile eight-year-old has won his last two races on the Flat, with his crowning moment in the Wolferton Handicap at Royal Ascot.
Henderson told the Telegraph: "We've put him in and we're going through the paperwork for quarantine, which would have to start pretty soon, so we're keen.
"But we'll have to wait and see what happens when the weights are out.
"He's also in the Caulfield Cup over a mile and a half.
"Johnny Murtagh said he felt a better horse at Goodwood over a mile and a half than he did at Ascot over a mile and a quarter, but he says why not go for the Melbourne Cup?
"You can do both races, though if you win one it banjaxes the other. But you wouldn't mind that."
Irish champion jumps trainer Willie Mullins is also hoping Simenon makes the cut for the Melbourne Cup.
Runner-up in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot and the Lonsdale Cup at York, the six-year-old could need a penalty in a prep race in Australia to get into the race.
Mullins said: "We're very keen to go. We hadn't envisaged running him again here but would look to run him before the Melbourne Cup in Australia."
