Clash On Cards Between Snow Fairy And Nathaniel
A clash between globe-trotting mare Snow Fairy (Intikhab-Woodland Dream, by Charnwood Forest) & multiple Gr1 winner Nathaniel (Galileo-Magnificent Style, by Silver Hawk) is on the cards in the Irish Champion Stakes to be run on September 8. Trainer Ed Dunlop told racingpost.com: "The Irish Champion is a possibility. She seems to have come out of France well so far and we will wait and see what the Irish weather does. We are due better weather next week so we'll see how she is." Meanwhile, the Irish Champion is Nathaniel's main aim, but regular jockey William Buick told At The Races that he'd like to see him take on Frankel instead: "I think the horse [Frankel] is probably unbeatable, but we've got a horse in Nathaniel who probably at some stage will have a go."
