Racing: Hills takes Top for quick step

Click to follow
Even Top, one of five British runners in next Saturday's Dubai World Cup, worked with his lead-horse, Time For Action, at Nad Al Sheba yesterday morning. The 2,000 Guineas second, trained by Mark Tompkins, worked seven furlongs under Richard Hills, quickening the tempo nearing the line.

Michael Stoute's Japan Cup winner, Singspiel, the mount of Jerry Bailey in the world's richest race, had a relaxed morning's exercise. It was a similar story for Mark Johnston's Bijou D'Inde, who was merely required to do a steady canter round the course ahead of stablemate Gothenberg.

Clive Brittain's Luso limbered up with a canter over a mile with Needle Gun, who is earmarked for the World Cup reserve race, the Dubai Duty Free, along with Gothenberg.
