Siskin Plans Still Up In The Air After Sussex Stakes Defeat


The Irish 2000 Guineas winner Siskin has yet to be given any other targets for the season by his connections after the Ger Lyons-trained colt suffered a first career defeat at Goodwood last week.

The two time Group one winner was the favourite to keep his unbeaten streak going, looking to land his sixth win in as many races, but was seen off in the final stages by the very pacy Mohaather for trainer Marcus Tregoning.

Khalid Abdullah's three year old is said to be none the worse since coming out of the race and with plenty of race options for the son of First Defence the team are looking forward to what the rest of the season has to offer.

The Prince's racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said: “He’s come out of the race well.

“I’ve got to discuss with Prince Khalid what he would like to do. We’ll look at all the options, which are pretty straightforward really.”

Another big update from the same connections see an update on the queen of racing Enable following her record breaking third victory in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes at Ascot.

The Yorkshire Oaks seems to be the most logical next step for her to end up in, with still a third attempt at the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in October the big objective for the mare.

"All is good with Enable. She hasn’t done a lot since Ascot, but she came out of the race well and everybody is happy with her,” Grimthorpe added.
