Richard Hannon is confident when coming into action following season, Mums Tipple can leave his attempt in the Middle Park Stakes and keep his progress.
The boy of Footstepsinthesand dropped his unbeaten record after failing to follow up his remarkable victory in a revenue race at York last month, when beating 1 house at Newmarket in the Group One contest.
Although Mums Tipple – whos as brief as 7-1 for the next years Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot – has been discovered to be lame after the race, the Marlborough handler accounts the to be fine.
He explained:Mums Tipple never conducted his race in the Middle Park, as he got a kick at the gate.
He has had X-rays on the leg, but hes fine. Hes done for the year.
We can get him ready now for next year and try to achieve that which we believe he is capable of. That defeat will have made a man .
An outing at the 2000 Guineas that are Qipco remains on the schedule for Threat, who finished two places before his stablemate in the six-furlong competition.
Hannon added:I think we will likely go back up to seven furlongs and proceed for a Guineas trial of a description. The Guineas remains on the agenda.
