Workforce decision due

A decision on whether Workforce runs in the Breeders' Cup Turf at Churchill Downs in two weeks' time is expected at the weekend.

Connections of the Michael Stoute-trained colt have been deliberating whether to run the Derby and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe hero just a month after his latest success at Longchamp.

"There's no news about Workforce. There will be a decision over the weekend," said Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Prince Khalid Abdullah.

Tom Queally is still on cloud nine after his Group One double at Newmarket last week.

Queally was aboard the unbeaten Frankel in the Dewhurst and Twice Over, who secured back-to-back victories in the Champion Stakes.

Both horses are trained by Henry Cecil and Queally is already looking forward to next season. "There are days when you think life cannot get better than this, and that thought crept into my mind as I left Newmarket last Saturday evening after winning two Group One races," said Queally.

Jonjo O'Neill reports Get Me Out Of Here to be ready to start off his second season over hurdles with a handful of options being mooted over the next month.

"He's in good form and is going to stay over hurdles," said O'Neill.

"Where we go I'm not sure, but he has plenty of options."

Steele Tango could go to Dubai for the Spring Carnival following another creditable effort at Newmarket.

Trainer Roger Teal said: "He might possibly go to Dubai all being well."
