Heinz 57 track watered.

THE sprint track at Leopardstown was watered yesterday in advance of tomorrow's big meeting featuring the Group 1 Heinz 57 Phoenix Stakes and the Group 3 Phoenix Sprint Stakes.

A track spokesman said: "The going was good to firm here this morning, and we have been watering. It should be absolutely perfect for Sunday. We stop watering the sprint course this evening, but the plan is for the round course to get some on Saturday."

There is a turnout of 11 for tomorrow's feature with a four-strong British challenge headed by Neville Callaghans's Prix Robert Papin winner Black Amber, the mount of Richard Hughes.

Pat Eddery, who rode Danehill Dancer to win the race for Callaghan in 1995, will be aboard one of the leading Irish fancies for the race this time, John Mulhern's Coventry Stakes third Access All Areas. Michael Kinane, who rode Access All Areas at Royal Ascot, teams up with Dermot Weld's course and distance Listed winner Pharmacist.
