Nahrain looking stronger - Varian

Tue, 17 April 2012

Roger Varian believes Nahrain is stronger than ever as he looks forward to the new season with his star filly.

The four-year-old was taken along steadily during 2011 before giving her trainer a first Group One victory in the Prix de l'Opera at Longchamp, and signing off for the year with an excellent second in the Breeders' Cup Filly And Mare Turf.

"Nahrain hasn't been back in that long and we are taking things slowly with her," said Varian on his new website, www.varianstable.com.

"There is no need to rush her back to the track as there aren't too many options for older fillies early on in the year with most of the suitable races being from midsummer onwards.

"She also had a long trip to Churchill Downs in November and we were keen to give her a long winter break to get over it.

"She is back cantering now and looks a stronger model this year. She is moving nicely and I'm very happy with her."
