Clive Brittain: Not in a rush
Clive Brittain is to train Miblish for a late-season campaign after the four-year-old got off the mark in 2013 with victory in the Magnolia Stakes at Kempton on Saturday.
Miblish made amends for having to miss the Winter Derby by making all of the running in that Listed contest over a mile and a quarter.
He had made a promising seasonal debut when second behind Planteur in the Winter Derby Trial and his Lingfield conqueror went on to finish third in the Dubai World Cup.
"He didn't appear to have a hard race. He won in a fast time and just cantered round," said the veteran Newmarket trainer.
"It was a solid race at Lingfield and he would have had a solid chance in the Winter Derby but unfortunately he couldn't run because he had a foot problem and had to have a course of antibiotics.
"We'll stick to a mile and a quarter, though I'm sure he'll get a mile and a half standing on his head later on. We've had a win from him now and he's still got some progression in him.
"There are no plans for him yet. The big money is on offer at the end of the season. He's had two races already this year and there's no need to run him again quickly."
