Mawj and Tahiyra Set for Royal Ascot Rematch
The countdown to Royal Ascot is on, and one of the most anticipated races is the rematch between Mawj and Tahiyra. Saeed bin Suroor’s Mawj came out on top in their last encounter at the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, but Dermot Weld’s filly has since won the Irish equivalent and is now the bookmakers’ favorite to turn the tables in the Coronation Stakes on June 23. Bin Suroor believes that his diminutive filly has a big heart, which was evident when she won a Classic after winning over seven furlongs in Dubai. He gives his two-year-olds time between races when he sees they are small and skinny, which helps them grow.
However, he also notes that she hasn’t grown much physically but remains a special filly nonetheless. Looking ahead to their upcoming race, Bin Suroor acknowledges that Tahiyra is very good and tough competition. He expresses confidence in Mawj’s ability to run well as they prepare for what promises to be another thrilling showdown. While some may suggest trying different distances with Mawj someday, Bin Suroor maintains that a mile suits her best for now. There are plenty of races available over this distance such as Falmouth or Sun Chariot – both prestigious events where they could compete against other top-class fillies. In conclusion, we can expect an exciting race between these two magnificent fillies at Royal Ascot. The rivalry continues!
