Fahey seeks sprint mileage from Myles

Richard Fahey is looking at further sprint prizes for Majestic Myles following his comeback success at Newmarket on Saturday.

Richard Fahey is looking at further sprint prizes for Majestic Myles following his comeback success at Newmarket on Saturday.

The gelding won three times during 2010 and was not beaten far by his esteemed stablemate Wootton Bassett in a valuable sales race at York in August, an excellent effort considering he suffered a serious injury during the race.

Fahey is now eyeing a return to the Knavesmire for Majestic Myles.

“I was delighted to see him win and it was a good performance on his first start of the year,” said Fahey.

“He suffered a stress fracture on his pelvis last year – we think he did it at York. He probably should have been second to Wootton Bassett that day.

“He’s a fair horse and hopefully he’ll go back to York now for a good three-year-old sprint (Bond Tyres Trophy) and then back to Newmarket later on.”

Fahey also confirmed Wootton Bassett remains on course for a clash with Frankel the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot next month.

“He’s fine and everything is on course for him to go to Ascot,” the Malton trainer added.
