Mud helps Lodge to more glory

Indian Lodge gave trainer Amanda Perrett the second Group One victory of her career and jockey Pat Eddery his first of the season when winning the Prix de la Foret at Longchamp yesterday. The mud-loving four-year-old, who is retiring to the Rathbarry Stud at the end of the season, beat Dansili by two and a half lengths, with Sugarfoot in third, to record his second French Group One success in six weeks. He was sent off at 3.6-1 on the Pari-Mutuel.

There was disappointment however for British raiders in the Prix du Conseil de Paris when Kind Regards and Holding Court filled the last two places in a five-runner field, Holding Court finishing tailed off. The winner, Crimson Quest, had been beaten eight lengths by Sinndar in the Prix Niel on his previous start.

Aidan O'Brien's Turnberry Isle will be aimed at the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in Kentucky next month after taking yesterday's Beresford Stakes at the Curragh.
