Racing: Short order for Lochsong

LOCHSONG is to be aimed at five furlong races for the rest of the season, with next Tuesday's King George Stakes at Goodwood her first target.

After disappointing in the six-furlong July Cup, her trainer, Ian Balding, and jockey, Willie Carson - riding in place of Lanfranco Dettori - were inclined to blame the trip. But her owner, Jeff Smith, thought she lost her chance by bolting to post, and described the race as a 'shambles'. Speaking at Bath yesterday, Balding said: 'Frankie Dettori will be back for Goodwood, and Lochsong will be very happy he is back on.'
