The Lir Jet set to miss Goodwood

The Lir Jet will skip the Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on Tuesday and instead be aimed at the Hungerford Stakes (Group 2) at Newbury on Saturday 14th August. Entries close for this race on Tuesday.

Michael Bell said “We’re going to give Goodwood a miss and go to Newbury instead. I’m really happy with The Lir Jet but I’d just like a little bit more time after his gelding operation and also the Lennox looks like it’s going to be a very hot contest. He ran brilliantly in the Greenham at Newbury earlier in the season so I believe he’ll go into that race with a really good chance.”
