Hannon eyes Leopardstown win
Trainer Richard Hannon is targeting a victory in the Leopardstown Phoenix Stakes with his horse Strong Suit (5/1 2000 Guineas winner) this weekend.
Hannon’s horses have dominated the juvenile scene this season and Strong Suit will be one of the favourites for the race in Ireland on Sunday.
This juvenile is unbeaten in his last two racecourse appearances with a winning debut at Newbury followed by an impressive last gasp win at Elzaam in the group 2 Coventry stakes at Royal Ascot.
Strong Suit will take some beating at Leapardstown if he manages to keep up his current form and Hannon will be doing everything to make sure the horse is ready for the feature race.
The veteran trainer, who was honoured as the champion trainer in 1992, has worked with some successful horses including Mon Fils, Don’t Forget Me and Tirol who have all won the prestigious 2000 Guineas.
