Eve Johnson Houghton reveals Newmarket plan for Scarlet Dragon

Mon 11 Sep 2017

Scarlet Dragon could bid to gain compensation for his latest defeat in the Listed Mukhadram Godolphin Stakes at Newmarket on September 29.

The son of Sir Percy was narrowly denied a first Pattern-race success when second in a Group Three at Kempton on Saturday, having previously failed to see out the trip in the Ebor.

Trainer Eve Johnson Houghton said: "We will stick to Listed and Group Three races now as he is not big enough to carry top weight in those big handicaps."

She continued: "A mile and a half seems to be his trip as he didn't get the mile and three-quarters in the Ebor.

"There is a Listed race at Newmarket at the end of the month that we might look at now. There are a few races like that and we might even go travelling with him."
