Charlie Appleby Seeking Juvenile Group One Glory This Weekend

Charlie Appleby

Leading British trainer Charlie Appleby is fielding some smart juveniles in Group One company this weekend and will be looking to land both the Criterium International in France and Vertem Futurity Trophy at Doncaster.

La Barrosa has been a rising star for the yard this season racing twice and landing both events in fin style, showing superb ability to win races when he has looked beat.

He started his career at Ascot over seven furlongs when beating a nice type for John Gosden and then he backed that up at Newmarket last time out when taking the Group Three Tattersalls Stakes.

He showed his determination to win that day, getting sightly flat footed in the dip but rallying well to win going away and that run should set him up perfectly for the Group One at Saint-Cloud where he will step up to a mile for the first time in his career.

In England the Vertem Futurity is the swansong Group One of the British flat season and One Ruler will look to do the business for the Newmarket trainer who will be looking to land his first ever winner in the race.

The two year old has been seen four times this season winning twice and placing in his other two races, showing a superb turn of foot on both good and soft ground.

After finishing a good third at Doncaster over seven furlongs behind New Mandate in the Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes, he stepped up to the Group Three Autumn Stakes at Newmarket last time out and now is given his chance at the top level.

(Credit ATR) Appleby said of One Ruler: “As we saw, stepping up to the mile for the first saw further improvement.

“He has come out of the race well. We had it in the back of our minds to look at the Vertem Futurity Trophy with him and he has done very well the last 10 days. We are pleased to let him take part on Saturday.

”He went on: “La Barrosa won the Tattersalls Stakes, which turned into a little tactical affair but he got the job done. He has come out of it well.

“We know that as he is by Lope De Vega he will like the soft ground. He is likely to head to France at this stage for the Criterium International, which looks a small field but a competitive field.”
