The high class SUSHISAN is to have his first run for James Eustace in the Group 3 Arc Trial at Newbury on Friday. He has a similar profile to WAR ARTIST as he is Australian bred and raced in South Africa. He has also raced in Dubai for the last 2 winters and in Honk Kong so he is well travelled. He has been given a rating of 117 and has some top class form with Group 1 performers including being only a head behind Youmzain in the Sheema Classic in Dubai.
SUSHISAN has had a late start to the season as he had joint surgery in Dubai at the end of March and only came to Park Lodge at the end of June. He has had a smooth preparation for Friday's race and seems in good form. James Eustace is hopeful of a decent performance if he runs as well as he has been working at home. There are only 9 runners and the ground should be good. He is a very interesting runner and could be travelling again after this race.He has entries in the Canadian International and the Melbourne Cup.
