Charlie Appleby’s Wuheida makes seasonal reappearance in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on Friday




Charlie Appleby’s filly has not been seen since winning the Prix Marcel Boussac back in October and connections are looking forward to getting her back on a racecourse

WUHEIDA is set to make her eagerly-awaited reappearance in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.

Last year’s winner of the Prix Marcel Boussac is among seven fillies declared for the Group 1 contest over a mile.


Trained by Charlie Appleby, she is the mount of William Buick, who does not expect the lack of a run this season to be a disadvantage.

“She’s doing well. It’s a competitive race. If she brings the same form to the table what she did in the Marcel Boussac last year she’s got to be right there with the best in that race,” Buick told At The Races.

Connections will be hoping Wuheida has retained all her ability

“Obviously it’s her first run back. It’s a Group 1 obviously, the trip is right and it’s only down the road for her. It’s the right race.

“She will do herself justice but you’d imagine she’d improve for it as well.”

Godolphin have a second string to their bow in Arabian Hope.

Aidan O’Brien relies on Roly Poly, who was second behind stable companion Winter in both the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh and the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.
