Mushir earns step up in class
Last Updated: 02/08/14 10:13am
Mushir is set for a return to Listed class on his next appearance after regaining the winning thread at Thirsk on Friday.
Roger Varian's Oasis Dream colt was unbeaten in two starts as a juvenile and made a most encouraging three-year-old debut when narrowly denied by Shifting Power in the Free Handicap at Newmarket's Craven meeting in April.
Mushir turned in the first disappointing effort of his career on his next appearance at Newbury, but bounced back with a decent effort in defeat in Listed company at Chester before triumphing in a conditions race in North Yorkshire on Friday.
Speaking on his website www.varianstable.com, the trainer said: "He has been running well without winning so this was a good opportunity for him.
"It was a decent enough performance under a penalty and giving weight to older horses.
"I'd say we'll look at a Listed race again next."
