Appleby backs Ring to fire

by British Horseracing Authority News Headlines 4 years ago

Wedding Ring goes in search of another lucrative prize in the �100,000 Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Sprint at Newmarket on Wednesday.

Charlie Appleby’s charge claimed the �100,000 Tattersalls Millions Fillies’ Median Auction Stakes and the �300,000 Tattersalls Millions 2yo Fillies’ Trophy as a juvenile and made a winning Dubai debut in the UAE 1000 Guineas Trial at Meydan in January.

She was a highly respectable fourth behind fellow Godolphin-owned filly Ihtimal in the UAE 1000 Guineas itself and Appleby is looking forward to seeing her back in British action at Headquarters.

He said: “Wedding Ring has been training well on her return from Dubai. We are pleased with her progress and confident that dropping back to six furlongs will suit, she should run a competitive race.”

Another prominent runner is Toofi, winner of the �100,000 Tattersalls Millions Median Auction Trophy in September.

Trainer Roger Varian said: “He is training very well and, looking at the ratings, he must have a chance on Wednesday. He is in good condition and we will be expecting a bold run. He is a sharp horse and with the prize-money involved it looked like an obvious race to start the season with having qualified for it last year.”
