“We Have To Give Her A Chance” – Bin Suroor Bullish On Mawj For Guineas

Mawj | Dhric/DRC/AK

Group 2 winner Mawj (Ire) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) is in good order ahead of an intended start in the May 7 G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas, according to Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor.

A winner of the G2 Duchess Of Cambridge S. and third in the G1 Cheveley Park S. at two, the bay won both the Jumeirah Fillies Classic and Jumeirah Fillies Guineas conditions races at Meydan over the winter.

Bin Suroor said, “She is good, has been working well and in good form. She will run in the Guineas. She is a nice filly and a proven filly. She has shown plenty of speed, but she stayed a mile well in Dubai and now we will give her a chance in the Guineas.

“It is a very tough race, but we have to give her a chance and see how she goes, as she has earned that chance. She has grown a little, but not much. That is why we gave her a break between races. Two-year-olds, when you give them a break, they generally grow and strengthen.”
