Appleby confident ahead of Wuheida return

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Charlie Appleby believes Wuheida is raring to go as she finally gets ready to return to the action.

Following her win in the Group One Prix Marcel Boussac, the three-year-old looked all set for a go at the 1000 Guineas but failed to appear at Newmarket after suffering a string of setbacks.

Appleby has remained patient as she has worked her way back to fitness but says he is satisfied after last week’s gallop at Chelmsford and will now send her to Friday’s Falmouth Stakes.

Having been unbeaten as a two-year-old the daughter of Dubawi comes with plenty of pedigree and her handler is confident she can compete on her return.

“She has done nothing but please us, but as I have stated all along, it is not week by week with her it is day by day,” Appleby said. “She has done everything we have asked of her.

“We are confident she will run a big race and it will be something to build on. If she is the filly we think she is, she should be very competitive regardless of needing it a bit.”
