Snow Fairy misses Champion

Thu 14 October 2010

SNOW FAIRY will miss Saturday's Emirates Airline Champion Stakes at Newmarket and instead sign off her season in Japan with a tilt at the Queen Elizabeth 11 Commemorative Cup at Kyoto on November 14.

Explaining the reasoning, Ed said:"Snow Fairy is in great shape, but this year's Champion looks a strong renewal and will be very competitive, and it would not be right going to Japan on the back of a hard race.

"With the bonus that the JRA are offering, we could pick up just short of £1.4m if Snow Fairy happens to win - they also double the prize money if she finishes second or third - and we want her to be at her peak when arrives out there, so we have decided to give Newmarket a miss."
