Wuheida has not been seen since winning in France in October but despite that absence, Appleby is confident of a big run from his three-year-old filly at Newmarket
CHARLIE APPLEBY is hoping Wuheida retains all her ability as she makes her belated reappearance in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.
The Godolphin filly was last seen winning the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac at Chantilly back in October.

“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,” said trainer Charlie Appleby.
“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.”
Godolphin’s other runner Arabian Hope is on the crest of a wave with three wins to her name in 2017.
“Arabian Hope won well in a Listed race at York and has been working nicely,” trainer Saeed bin Suroor told www.godolphin.com.
“This is a big step up for Arabian Hope, but I have been happy with her and I am looking for another good result.”

Delectation represents German trainer Andreas Wohler and he feels she is capable of better than her efforts in both the French and German 1,000 Guineas.
“Delectation is really well and I think that she is still on an upward curve – she will have to be if she is going to go close in the Falmouth Stakes as it looks like a really tough race,” said Wohler.
William Haggas’ French 1,000 Guineas runner-up Sea Of Grace is having her first race since chasing home Precieuse at Deauville in May while Aidan O’Brien is represented by Roly Poly.
John Gosden’s Argentinian import Greta G is a fascinating contender.
She did not fare too badly on her British debut when unplaced behind Qemah in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at the Royal meeting.
Mick Channon’s Group 2 winner Opal Tiara, who was behind Greta G that day, completes the seven-strong field.
