Alan kick-starts a busy Wednesday with Coeur de Lion at Goodwood
Alan, who enjoyed a bumper July and reached his best-ever tally on the Flat when Just In Time became winner number 20 for Barbury at Sandown last week, faces a busy Wednesday, starting off with Coeur de Lion in the Goodwood Stakes (1.50) and ending with Elysees in the finale (8.35) back on the Esher course.
We’ve also got Group Stage making his debut at Sandown and Junderstand going for the nine furlong handicap.
Of Coeur de Lion, Alan said:”He has done us proud on the level this season and, though he is now on a career highest mark of 92, he never lets us down, and he ran another blinder against Stratum at Newbury last time.
“The week-end rain will have taken the sting out of the ground, so, hopefully, he’ll again be competitive.”
