Sugar in frame for Childers
Brown Sugar could make a quick reappearance at Doncaster following his victory in Saturday's Sirenia Stakes at Kempton.
Brown Sugar could make a quick reappearance at Doncaster later this week following his narrow victory in Saturday's Sirenia Stakes at Kempton.
Winner of the Molecomb Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, the Richard Hannon-trained colt defied a 3lb penalty to fend off Figure Of Speech by a short head in the all-weather Group Three.
That victory came over six furlongs but Brown Sugar could revert to the minimum trip for Friday's Polypipe Flying Childers Stakes at Doncaster if the Hannon team are happy with him.
"Brown Sugar is a decent little horse, and he is now a lot more switched off than he was earlier in the season," said Richard Hannon jnr, son and assistant to the trainer.
"He did not really handle the undulations at Goodwood but still managed to win, so we know that he is as effective at both five and six furlongs.
"He is in the Flying Childers at Doncaster on Friday, but we will see how he is in the week. We also have Thunder Strike lined up for that," he told www.richardhannonracing.co.uk.
