Samitar eyeing Sprint success
Mick Channon's Guineas contender Samitar puts her credentials on the line in Wednesday's £150,000 Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Sprint at HQ.
A revelation last year, she finished second in a a similar valuable sales race in August, third in the May Hill and second in the Fillies' Mile before winning the £300,000 Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies' Trophy.
A 25-1 chance for the Classic, Channon is pleased with her condition.
"She is in good form and has wintered well - we decided to come to the Tattersalls Millions Sprint as a prep race for the 1000 Guineas next month."
Channon also runs Tidentime.
A total of 15 runners will go to post with David Elsworth's Swiss Spirit an interesting contender along with Charlie Hills' Balty Boys, owned by Sir Alex Ferguson among others.
"All his best form is over six furlongs, so this looked a good race to aim at as there is some big prize-money on offer," said Hills.
"His work has been good and although his work suggests he might even get a bit further than six furlongs now and he is high enough in the weights, I'm expecting him to run a good race."
Marco Botti's Solar Deity is highly thought of while Ed Dunlop's Muarrab was an impressive winner at Lingfield recently.
