MUDJIMBA AND GENERAL DE VEGA MOVING ACROSS FROM SWEDEN
Mudjimba, a three-year-old son of high profile stallion Kodiac out of the Giant's Causeway daughter Causeway Charm, has one win to his name, after just three runs. He won a maiden event over 1400 metres at Bro Park in October last year, when he beat Blue Gem and Hypochondriac in a close finish. Both of the placed runners in this race went on to win subsequently, indicating that Mudjimba's maiden form was useful - though he has himself been unplaced in three outings thus far in 2020. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him good. He is a half-brother to three winners in England / Ireland, successful from 6 to 8 furlongs. 24 Jun 20
General de Vega is a well bred three-year-old who has produced smart form in Sweden and Denmark and been third in a good conditions race at Meydan. A son of dual classic winner Lope de Vega, General de Vega broke his maiden by 4 1/2 lengths over 1200 metres on the dirt track at Bro Park in 2019, and he gained a 2 1/2-length win over 1400 metres / turf at Klampenborg in May. He spent the winter in Dubai, where he finished third in the Dubai Trophy over 1200 metres on turf, beaten just 2 lengths by Godolphin's winner, Platinum Star - a Listed winner in England last year. Out of Prix Vanteaux (G3) winner Just Little (Grand Slam), General de Vega is a half-brother to Radipole, a Listed winning miler in France before being exported to Australia, where he was placed in G2 and G3 events.
