Gallagher in line for Mill Reef
BRIAN MEEHAN has said that Gallagher, beaten half a length in the Group1 Prix Morny last month, will reappear in the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury a week next Saturday, September 20.
Although Gallagher failed to withstand the late surge of David Wachman's Bushranger at Deauville, he finished clear of the remaining runners and Meehan has been pleased with his latest work at Manton.
Speaking from the US, the trainer said: "Gallagher also just missed out in the Richmond at Goodwood, where he looked unlucky after failing to get a clear run when making his challenge. We werethrilled with hisrun in France, and we now look forward to the Mill Reef. He is a very talented colt, and deserves to win a top race."
