DUNLOP LAUNCHES ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL RAID WITH JACKFINBAR Harry Dunlop made another successful raid to France, following Knight To Behold’s Gr.2 Prix Guillaume d’Ornano success last month, when Jackfinbar landed the Gr.3 Prix de Lutece. The son of Whipper tracked Solesili (Dansili), who set a good gallop and had the field well strung out. They closed in on the pacemaker before the turn for home and after it Jackfinbar kicked on, followed by Ziyad (Rock Of Gibraltar). Ziyad appeared to be travelling better but Jackfinbar kept on finding ran on to score by two lengths. They were nine lengths ahead of Mystic Sunshine (Maxios). A winner over 1m1½f at two, Jackfinbar was unsuccessful in three starts this season before scoring in a 1m6f handicap at Sandown Park in July on his last start. Bred by Larissa Kneip and Sandrine Grevet, he is a full-brother to the Listed Silver Tankard Stakes winner ann Gr.1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud runner-up Willie The Whipper and a half-brother to the German Listed-placed Anna Magnolia (Makfi), a half-sister to the Gr.2 Union-Rennen winner Aspectus (Spectrum).
