Mot Juste raring to go - Varian

15th April 2019, 16:26 by Bobbie Jackson

Roger Varian insists his charge Mot Juste is raring to go ahead of the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket.

The three-year-old will renew his rivalry with Angel's Hideaway on Tuesday as he attempts to impress on his seasonal bow.

Mot Juste ended 2018 with back-to-back victories at Beverley and Newmarket and Varian is confident he has more to offer in 2019.

Varian hopes a strong performance on Tuesday will pave the way for a shot at the Qipco 1000 Guineas back at the Rowley Mile on May 5.

"Mot Juste has wintered well and strengthened up considerably. The Nell Gwyn is the logical place to start her off," Varian said.

"I am pleased with the way she has been working but, although she is ready for a run, the Nell Gwyn will bring her on and we are treating it as a stepping stone to the rest of the season for her.

"She has a fast ground action - the ground is quite important to her - so the dry forecast is in her favour.

"I hope that she is a filly good enough to merit a place in the 1000 Guineas line-up."
