Big guns stand Middle Park ground at Newmarket

Earthlight, Siskin and Mums Tipple will put their unbeaten records on the line in a renewal of Their Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

The Andre Fabre-trained Earthlight has won each of his four starts so far – lately striking at the Prix Morny Group One level. Mums Tipple is just two to Richard Hannon from two, with followed up a debut success in an Ascot maiden – which has worked out exceptionally – using an 11-length demolition project at a sales race in York last month. Hannon has a second string to his bow Saturday in Champagne Stakes winner Threat and the Gimcrack. Siskin provided his trainer Ger Lyons using a first Group One victory in Ireland when claiming his fourth consecutive victory in the Phoenix Stakes – and also bids to double his tally from the colors of race sponsor Khalid Abdullah on the Rowley Mile. Aidan O’Brien procured a record sixth victory from the Middle Park 12 months ago having Ten Sovereigns and this year flames a three-pronged assault, together with Monarch Of Egypt – runner-up to Siskin on his last two starts – connected by Lope Y Fernandez and King Neptune. Clive Cox’s Richmond Stakes hero Golden Horde – third to Earthlight on his latest look at France – and Richard Fahey’s outsider Summer Sands complete the nine-strong area. Read more:
