Rugby World Cup: Samoa beat Russia 34-9 after strong second half performance
Mabs Cross is intended to tackle six furlongs for the first time in well over a couple of years in the Qipco British Champions Sprint on Saturday.
The mare left her first two career starts over the sprint space in 2017s spring, but was retained to five furlongs ever since.
The five-year-old has won seven of her 19 career starts – a race where she finished fifth.
Mabs Cross will lineup for what may be her swansong on British Champions Day, together with trainer Michael Dods admitting the prospect of testing conditions is an issue as she steps up in trip.
The strategy is still to operate, so far as I am aware, said the Darlington-based coach.
We have always wanted to test her over six furlongs, but this is clearly a rigid six in soft ground. It is not ideal, but it is the same for everyone and theyre doing everything they can to get on the meeting.
She seems nicely, so I think well let her take her chance and see how she gets .
The heir apparent to Mabs Cross as the trainer star is Dakota Gold, who maintained his fifth success from his last six starts when landing the Listed Rous Stakes at Ascot last time out.
The son of Equiano is most likely to round off his effort next month Stakes.
Weve maintained him ticking over and the strategy is to visit Doncaster for the Listed race, Dods additional.
He is in good form, so hell head there and that will be his final run of the year.
