Harbouring Thoughts Of Success With Hannon's Top Juvenile

Harbour Watch will have his final start of the season in either the Middle Park or Dewhurst Stakes.

Both races take place on the same day now on October 8, but there is a difference of opinion in the Richard Hannon camp as to which event will suit him best.

The trainer feels the seven furlongs of the Dewhurst will suit him fine, but his son and assistant Richard jnr is happy to keep him to six furlongs for now.

"It depends which Richard you talk to. Basically he's going to go for one of the big races at the end of the season, either the Dewhurst or the Middle Park," said David Redvers, racing manager for the part-owners Pearl Bloodstock.

"The plan has always been the Dewhurst because Richard senior is absolutely confident that he'll stay a mile next year, but Richard junior seems to be leaning towards the Middle Park so it's a case of watch this space really," he told At The Races.
