Express needs a dry spell
Ed McMahon has warned he will only send smart filly Winning Express to Tipperary on Thursday if the ground dries out.
The Lichfield trainer would like to give his 1000 Guineas fourth the chance to atone for her narrow defeat in the Oak Tree Stakes at Glorious Goodwood in the Coolmore Stud Fairy Bridge Stakes, a Group Three contest.
He does, though, want conditions to be suitable before committing her to the seven-furlong contest.
"She's well and goes to Tipperary if the ground is okay. It was yielding and I need for it to dry out to good really to send her there," said McMahon.
"She's in fine form from Goodwood. I got a bit despondent after the run because I felt she went a bit too soon, but on the day that's what it's all about."
