Ed Dunlop’s incredible mare Snow Fairy will soon be back in full work as her trainer eyes up some major prizes in the second half of the season.
The five-year-old has won five Group One contests in four different countries and was last seen landing Japan’s Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup for the second time in November.
She was injured in the build up to the Hong Kong International meeting the following month and while she has yet to return to Dunlop’s yard, he has issued an upbeat bulletin.
“She hasn’t returned to me yet, but she’s ticking along and is back in ridden exercise,” said Dunlop.
“She isn’t due to return to me for a few weeks yet and she’ll be very much geared towards the second half of the season if all goes well.
“Last year she came back in the Eclipse but she wouldn’t be ready for that this year. We might be looking at something like the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood.”
