Lung Wash Ordered for Harbour Views
With his Cox Plate campaign potentially in doubt, prodigiously talented French import Harbour Views is set to undergo a lung wash, reports punters.com. The emerging star for Victorian trainer Matthew Williams was sent off a short-priced favourite on Saturday at Caufield where he was expected to win with authority, however after stalking the leaders until the turn, he pounced as expected but quickly hit a brick wall. Although found to be lame in his left fore-leg, Williams isn't prepared to accept that as an excuse for Harbour Views who seemed to be trotting up with no problems or detectable heat on Sunday. "He's getting a lung wash done and I'm more suspicious in that area," revealed Williams, who believes he will have enough time to overcome any possible respitory issues in time for the son of Le Favre to tackle the Cox Plate win-and-you're-in Feehan Stakes in September.
