Lashes on song for Opera

Kevin Manning believes Lush Lashes could be returning to her best form in time for the Prix de l'Opera at Longchamp on Sunday.

The triple Group One winner was put back in training with Jim Bolger in the summer after losing a Sea The Stars foal, and with two promising comeback runs under her belt, Lush Lashes is giving the Bolger stable the right signs ahead of her trip to Paris.

"She progressed well from her first run to her last start and if she can make the same step again it would be very interesting," said Manning.

"I sat on her on Tuesday morning, she seems very well and is moving very well, so I'm very pleased with her.

"The ground is soft at the minute over there and there is a lot of rain forecast. It wouldn't be ideal, but everybody is in the same boat."
