2 Year old
This superb-looking colt is a quality individual with great presence. He is a son of first-season sire Alhebayeb, a Group 2-winning juvenile trained by Richard Hannon and owned by Hamdan Al Maktoum. He was purchased at Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, Doncaster where he really stood out as a strong individual with the additional scope to train on well. He is trained at Man-ton by Brian Meehan, who last year enjoyed notable success with the high-class Group 2-winning 2yo Barraquero and our own highly-progressive useful handicapper Fastar, both cheaper graduates of the same Goffs Premier Yearling Sale.
UPDATE: This colt has shown plenty of ability in his work, Brian Meehan likes him a great deal and believes he is capable of winning plenty of races. He made his debut in a very hot 7f maiden at Ffos Las on 5 September, showing plenty of pace before running green and getting tired in the closing stages. After another solid run in an extremely hot maiden at Newmarket, he finished a tremendous third in a competitive novice stakes over 1m at Brighton 18 October on his latest appearance. He showed plenty of pace once again and kept on very well to the line. He now qualifies for a handicap rating and his trainer is very much looking forward to plenty of wins from this progressive youngster.

His sire: ALHEBAYEB will have his first crop of 2yo runners in 2018 and his yearlings have been extremely well received at the autumn sales. Alhebayeb was trained by Richard Hannon to win on his racecourse debut over five furlongs prior to finishing 2nd of 23 at Royal Ascot. He then gained his most notable win when successful in the Group 2 July Stakes (six furlongs) at Newmarket. He is a son of the great sire Dark Angel, who is responsible for the brilliant sprinters Harry Angel, Battaash, Mecca’s Angel and Lethal Force, to name only a few.
His dam: GLYNDEBOURNE is a daughter of the top stallion Rahy, the sire of Fantastic Light, Hawksley Hill and Noverre. Glyndebourne is the dam of one winner from two runners to date and this colt is a half-brother to the impressive debut maiden seven-furlong maiden Casimiro (trained by Roger Charlton) earning an official handicap rating of 87. Glyndebourne is a half-sister to the Listed winner and Group 2-placed Portrayal from a family that boasts a huge number of Group race winners.
