Mise En Scene is declared to run in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on Sunday at 3.40pm.
Cieren Fallon takes the ride.
The race is live on ITV and RacingTV.
14 runners go to post on Sunday for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas. Mise En Scene has been drawn in stall 11. An ultra-competitive race as you would expect for a race of this nature. As you know, this has been the target for Mise En Scene all winter and she goes to Newmarket with a live chance.
James Ferguson has had a clean run with her in preparing for this race which is a major factor when competing at any level, never mind in a classic race like this. Her work has been very good, and the camp is very happy with her condition going into the race.
She ran very well over this course and distance in the Fillies’ Mile last autumn and if she can progress from that she is right in the mix. Her run in the Breeders Cup can be excused due to being drawn out wide which scuppered her chances. Even so, she was only beaten by four lengths that day.
Cieren Fallon takes the ride and knows her well. He rode her last season in the Newmarket race and has ridden at home in her work in the lead up to this weekend.
Going into the race everyone is very hopeful of a big run and if she hits her turbo early enough she could be right there coming to the final furlong.
James Ferguson said today,
“Mise En Scene has been declared to run in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas. She did two canters up the hill this morning and had a nice blow out on the second canter.
I think ever since she ran so well in the Fillies’ Mile last year, where I think the result on paper doesn’t do her run much justice, the decision was then taken to aim her at the Guineas.
She’s been a tremendous horse for us and the yard. She took us to America which was great fun and a wonderful experience.
She’s in really good order, I’m very happy with her. The reason I didn’t want to run her in a trial for the Guineas was because I didn’t want to drop her back to seven furlongs. A mile is a good trip for her. She is out of a Galileo mare, so we’ll probably step her up in trip in time.
I took her for a racecourse gallop at Chelmsford instead of running in a trial a couple of weeks ago which brought her on nicely. Her regular work ride is absolutely delighted with her, her work has been great since she came back into training.
Cieren Fallon has sat on her a couple of times recently and Oisin Murphy came in and sat on her as well so we’re all with our fingers crossed and we all think she’s got a massive chance."
RacehorseClub Manager Freddy Tylicki said,
“Mise En Scene has been declared for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas this morning. To have a runner in a race as famous as this is quite simply unbelievable. RacehorseClub continues to offer world class racehorses to racing fans around the globe.
This year’s renewal of the race once again looks exceptional with the likes of Aidan O’Brien, Charlie Appleby, Andre Fabre to name a few all represented. It’s a great opportunity for our young trainer James Ferguson to enhance his reputation as one of the brightest talents in the training ranks. He is even taking on two of his old bosses in Charlie Appleby and Jessica Harrington which I’m sure he’ll enjoy.
Sunday will be a great occasion just to be part of. I’m sure many of Mise En Scene’s members will be telling their friends and family this weekend they have a runner in one of the most historic races in the world!
Fingers crossed Mise En Scene runs a big race and gives everyone plenty to cheer about whether watching on track or at home.”
