The Hugo Palmer trained Powerful Breeze looks to be making her long-awaited return to the track in the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket next month.
The three year old has only been seen on a racecourse three times, all of them coming as a juvenile after suffering an injury at the back end of her first season as a racehorse.
She bounced onto the scene at Newmarket winning a decent novices event over seven furlongs and she then went on to back that up at Doncaster over a mile in the Group Two May Hill Stakes.
She rounded off her two year old season suffering her first narrow defeat when getting beat in the Group One bet365 Fillies' Mile in a photo-finish to Quadrilateral.
Palmer said: “Powerful Breeze is doing great. She’s been back cantering for a while now. She hasn’t galloped yet, but she didn’t take a lot of galloping to get to her peak last year.
“We think she’s a bigger and stronger filly this year and the most important thing is there is no indication she is any discomfort whatsoever – long may that remain the case.
“I’m hopeful we’ll see her in the Sun Chariot. There is no obvious opportunity to run her before Newmarket, but she did win first and second time up last season and is not a big filly who takes a lot of getting fit.
“It’s obviously been a concertinaed campaign, so if there is ever a good year to miss most of the season, this was it.”
