Breeders' Cup hero Karakontie is set to make his belated return to action in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville on August 16. The Jonathan Pease-trained colt has not been seen in competitive action since landing the Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita last November, but is closing in on a comeback, with connections keen to head back to America later in the year. Alan Cooper, racing manager for his owners, the Niarchos family, said: "Karakontie did a nice piece of work on the racecourse at Chantilly on Monday.

"As long as we have a trouble-free run between now and August 16, the plan is for him to make his reappearance in the Jacques le Marois. "It will be exciting to see him back on the racecourse. Having not been seen since November, I'm sure there will be some rustiness there, but we will see. "The main aim is to go back for the Breeders' Cup Mile. The ideal scenario would be to run in the Marois, the Prix du Moulin and then go to the Breeders' Cup, but as always we take it race by race."
