Charlie Appleby believes Majeyda has a solid chance of making the frame in Sunday’s Qipco 1000 Guineas at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile.
In what is an open-looking contest, the Newmarket handler feels that the dual Listed winner could upstage a few of the more fancied rivals and run into a place in the Group One mile contest.
“Majeyda run a good race when finishing third in the Nell Gwyn and she will come on for that run,” said Appleby. “There are a lot of speed fillies in there and when they hit that rising ground that is when results change and Majeyda is a filly who will be doing all of her best work late on.
“She may not be the best filly in the race, but I would definitely give her a decent each-way shout.”
On Friday, leading French jockey Olivier Peslier issued an upbeat report after partnering Amazing Maria, who is trained in town by Ed Dunlop, alongside two stablemates, including multiple Group Two race winner Times Up, in a seven-and-a-half furlong racecourse gallop on the Rowley Mile, ahead of a tilt at the Qipco 1000 Guineas.
“She jumped off well and got a good lead,” said Peslier. “I stayed behind the lead horse and came through at around the two furlong pole.
“I was always on the bridle and travelling easy.
“When I was in front I just pushed her a bit as she was looking around.
“It is the first time I have seen her, but she is a massive filly and she seems quite forward. It was perfect ground, but a little bit of rain would help her more.”
