Lanigan targets Listed success with No Jet Lag
THE Listed Star Appeal Stakes at Dundalk is the highlight of an intriguing day's racing where the overnight rain will have a huge impact on the turf fixtures.
That will not be the case at Dundalk and a whole host of talented juveniles line up in the 7.30pm, including David Wachman's well-regarded Cougar Ridge.
Aidan O'Brien runs Lines Of Battle and Infanta Branca, while David Lanigan runs No Jet Lag and Jim Bolger runs newcomer Hudson's Bay for Sheikh Mohammed.
Lines Of Battle and No Jet Lag contest favouritism and on the latter David Lanigan said: "It's a competitive race, but we know he acts on the surface as he won on it at Lingfield in July and he's in good form."
At Carlisle, Cheltenham and Aintree festival winner Ataglance makes his novice chasing debut in the 5.00pm against some decent opposition while Lucinda Russell's talented Tito Bustillo runs in the 4.30pm.
At York the William Haggas-trained Beaten Up takes on the Roger Varian's Mijhaar, while 2010 Cambridgeshire winner Credit Swap runs in the 3.05pm.
In the 2.40pm at Bath Gladiatrix will bid to complete a four-timer, this time under talented apprentice Michael JM Murphy.
At Chantilly Noel Quinlan runs Lewisham and James Given runs Jadanna in the Group 3 Prix Eclipse over 6f.
