What to watch
Bungle Inthejungle remains the only first-season sire to have supplied a winner this year, and he doubled his tally to two on Tuesday when Jungle Inthebungle justified 6-4 favouritism to win a 5f median auctions stakes on the Lingfield all-weather.
Could he make it a hat-trick of winners before any of the others field their first? His son Tarrzan, out of the useful Flat performer Susiescot, is entered up for a median auction maiden at Dundalk on Friday, exactly a week after Jungle Jane got the sire of the mark by winning a hotly contested fillies maiden.
