Meeznah set for Haydock bow

Meeznah was put through her paces today ahead of a likely return to action at Haydock on Saturday week.

Trainer David Lanigan has been giving the four-year-old filly plenty of work before she makes her seasonal debut in the EBF New Approach Grosvenor Casinos Pinnacle Stakes at the Merseyside venue.

“She’s fine. She was having some work on Wednesday and then hopefully she’ll go to Haydock for a mile-and-a-half fillies’ Listed race on May 28,” said Lanigan.

“We had a difficult spring and it takes plenty of work to get her straight.

“I was going to run her at Goodwood but felt she needed a couple more gallops first.”

Meeznah was second past the post in the Investec Oaks at Epsom last June only to be disqualified after failing a drugs test.
