Lyons aiming Siskin at Middle Park
Siskin's trainer Ger Lyons says the Middle Park Stakes on September 28 is a likely target, with the plan to keep him over six furlongs.
The unbeaten Khalid Abdullah-owned colt tasted Group One glory on Friday, surging to success in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.
Siskin is already entered in the Vincent O'Brien National Stakes on September 15 but with his owners sponsoring the Middle Park, a run at Newmarket is likely.
Lyons says a first run in the UK would suit his charge, especially as it will give the two-year-old another attempt over his preferred trip of six furlongs.
"He'll be in all the relevant races," the Dunsany-handler said. "Obviously the Middle Park is sponsored by his owners and he's in the Vincent O'Brien (National Stakes) over here at the same time. Then there's the Dewhurst, so I'm not thinking beyond that at the moment.
"I'd agree with everybody that there's no reason to be stepping him up in trip, I'd just like to see him on nice ground.
"At this moment in time you'd have to be thinking the Middle Park would be his next race, but we'll discuss that in the next week."
