Appleby lifts lid on Wuheida plan

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Wuheida will drop back down in trip for the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown in preparation for the October’s Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

Newmarket trainer Charlie Appleby has provided an update on the daughter of Dubawi, after she struggled over an extra furlong in Sunday’s German Oaks in Dusseldorf.

And he said the mile-and-a-quarter Group One at the Curragh on September 9 is the ideal race ahead of the trip to Kentucky the following month.

Appleby told “What we learned in Germany on Sunday is that she doesn’t stay that trip.

“But having said that, the first two home (Lacazar and Megera) are both nice fillies and may be very smart.

“The next logical step is to drop Wuheida back in distance to one mile in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown on September 9 before taking her to the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, over nine furlongs, at Keeneland in mid-October.”
