Lankan Rupee Works at Sandown

Thursday, 3rd August 2017

The Mick Price-trained Lankan Rupee had his first look at Sandown yesterday ahead of Sunday’s rescheduled Gr3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m), reports ANZ Bloodstock News. The five-time Gr1 winner was sent out for a gallop alongside stable-mate and fellow Bletchingly contender Duke Of Brunswick. "I was surprised how the old boy quickened down,” jockey Craig Newitt said of Lankan Rupee. “On the line the other horse had the measure of me, but I reckon it was fitness that gave way in my bloke. If he gets a good gate and a pretty good run I think he'll be a really good chance, if not his fitness may give out.”
