Ger Lyons feels that the choice this month, to adhere at Newmarket is the perfect one because of his unbeaten colt.
Lyons admitted the seven-furlong Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes was something but decided to stick that six furlongs is the distance for Siskin’s following race.
The Middle Park provides the chance to shoot his 100 per cent record and follow his Group One success in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes up to Siskin.
“It was totally my telephone,” that the County Meath handler told journaling TV.
“He even did a snap over seven – he’s run four times and won four times all over six, including a Group One, and for me he’s undoubtedly the greatest over six in the present time.
“I said to Colin (Keane), I think it was a week past Saturday, we had breeze him over seven. It was quite clear to me that going seven was not the right thing, although he worked nicely. Why go at the time when he’s by far the best around at six.
“When there wasn’t the Middle Park in two weeks’ time I would have turned up (from the National Stakes). We weren’t running. There’s an option in two weeks’ time and it’s a Group One.
“I must place my horse at which he can win his race.
“I am not saying that he could not have won (the National Stakes). My best target was the Middle Park.
“I would really like to run in the Vincent O’Brien (National Stakes). It is here on my own door step, but the target is that the Middle Park and when he was breezed by us said,’correct my head is composed’.
“I made one phone call to say in my opinion this horse should go to the Middle Park. ‘Proper – amazing, perfect, excellent luck’. I presumed that was easy.
“As we speak we are on target for the Middle Park. It’s a long way, a fortnight is a long time for a racehorse, but touch wood this horse has not let us down and I’m looking forward to Newmarket.”
Lyons is at taking at Newmarket, headed by the Mums Tipple on opposition excited.
