Chester next for Main Sequence
Chester's Stobart Business Services Dee Stakes looks to be the most likely next target for David Lanigan's unbeaten Main Sequence.
A 50-1 winner on his debut last year at Yarmouth, the Aldebaran colt went on to lift a Newmarket nursery and came back to the Rowley Mile on his seasonal reappearance in the final event of the Craven meeting, a hot 10-furlong handicap.
Main Sequence, who is owned by the Niarchos family, has entries in both the Investec Derby and the Totepool Dante Stakes.
"He came out of the race in good order and had a canter this morning," said Lanigan.
"We're looking at a couple of options but I will have to sit down and talk to Alan Cooper (the family's racing manager).
"I will leave him in the Dante as an option but I'd say the preference at this stage would be the Dee Stakes."
Lanigan spent the start of his training career in Newmarket but has now moved to Lambourn and has made a bright start to the new season with three winners from four runners last week.
One of those was Investec Oaks entry Shestheman, who collected an interesting maiden over an extended nine furlongs at Wolverhampton on Saturday night.
"She came out of the race well and we'll just see how she is over the next 10 days before we decide what we do with her," the trainer added.
