Horse Racing: Saturday 25th February – Aidenldrebin Selection


1.30 LingfieldHAJAAM (nap)

The selection is a son of Invincible Spirit who is a full brother to UK/HK 7f-1m winner Better Announce and a half brother to Group 3/Listed-placed Irish 10.5f 3yo AW winner Amazing Beauty, useful 7-10f winner Humungous and two other winners, out of a US 1m 3yo winning half sister to US 7f 3yo Grade 2 winner Cat Chat (later dam of In Lingerie). This colt is trained by Charlie Fellowes and saw his sales price increase from 170,000gns as a foal to 250,000gns as a yearling, looking the part on pedigree as a full brother to Better Announce, a winning debutant at two, whilst he is also a half brother to a very useful pair including an all weather winner. For all his handler’s newcomers often improve for their initial outing, this colt starts out in what looks to be a particularly winnable contest; no surprise to see this son of Invincible Spirit off the mark at the first time of asking here.

About Author

Have been interested in horse racing since 2000, particularly the breeding side of things. Naturally, I enjoy picking apart maiden races given my love of pedigrees, but I am also at home with handicaps and Group races. Spotting potential early is very rewarding, as is picking up on a handicap project from an early stage, with my most satisfying success stories in recent years being Pere Blanc, More Of That, Turtle Watch and Arab Dawn.
