Charlie Appleby has faith in Dewhurst winner Pinatubo

Charlie Appleby is convinced if his Dewhurst hero will further bid to live up to contrasts with all the Frankel, Pinatubo will get a mile a year ago.
Shamardals son made it six wins from as many starts having a second victory at Group One level at Newmarket on Saturday, adding to his nine-length live-in National Stakes to provide a first Dewhurst success to the Appleby.
Though Pinatubo was given a higher juvenile rating Appleby understands he should shine next semester to match the exploits of this Sir Henry Cecil-trained celebrity.
Appleby said:Pinatubo is not a flashy horse such as Frankel was, we all know what an amazing horse he was and he had the stature of being educated by Sir Henry Cecil.
He is a completely different horse since Frankel was keen to get on with things and that left him have thatwow factor.
Pinatubo is a horse which goes out there and does it. He has been to Epsom, Glorious Goodwood Royal Ascot and nothing disturbs him. You cant mistake him.
It is terrific that he to be set in the exact same sentence as Frankel, however, hes to go out and do it again next year.
What people will be questioning is that he is not the largest horse in the world, but to me he is a very neat racehorse that ignites a good deal of boxes
Given the Dewhurst was completed by Pinatubo, his handler expects him to have no trouble stepping up from seven furlongs to a mile at the Qipco 2000 Guineas back.
He explained:William (Buick) got away and said straight away the shuttle would be no issue. The good thing about himwhich will help him see out it, is that he switches off.
All of us know just how long the winter is with horses that are exciting, but we can put this to bed and also look forward to the Guineas.
Whether he has a prep run ahead of it, that will be conversation to be had in January/February time
Along with revealing he has the capability it was a triumph which eased the other concern in the brain of Appleby while Pintatubo revealed a new side to his game.
He added:My only anxiety going into it was as he is so laid back, would going in a horse box 10 minutes on the street wake him up , as all his runs are much off, but since we watched he was fine.
His past two races he had won emphatically, admittedly they had been to a sounder surface, but what we saw was do it more of a fighting manner in states that were likely to be evaluation for several of the runners.
William had to cajole him but after he hit on the rising floor and obtained to Arizona, I was convinced he was going to pull away like hes done in all his races
Appleby commended the function Godolphin supremo Sheikh Mohammed has performed Pinatubos success story, with chosen him as a celebrity last year.
He said:I only need to emphasise how good it is for Sheikh Mohammed, because he watched this horse in the farms this time this past year and picked him out and happily allow him return to Moulton Paddocks.
For him to have experienced that attention from the start with a home-bred as well as watch the horse thrive is wonderful for the entire Godolphin team.
