LURE, the outstanding miler in North America who was due to contest the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood next Wednesday, is likely to be prevented from taking part by the Ministry of Agriculture.

The dual winner of the Breeders' Cup Mile has been quoted at odds as low as 6-1 for the race against such as Mister Baileys and Bigstone.

However, the ministry will not grant entry to Britain to horses vaccinated against life- threatening Equine Viral Arteritis. Lure received such a vaccination last year when it was planned that he should race in Chicago, where there was an outbreak of the disease.
