Horse Racing: Wednesday 30th November – Aidenldrebin Selections


5.25 KemptonTISBUTADREAM (nap)

The selection, trained by David Elsworth, is a nicely-bred daughter of Dream Ahead who made her debut outing in a 6f fillies’ novice event at Newmarket (July) back in June (well-supported 5/2 chance), showing signs of inexperience right from the off, pushed along in rear and becoming detatched by the halfway stage, losing touch altogether approaching the final furlong and coming home sixth of seven behind Spiritual Lady (beaten 17½ lengths). This filly was far too green to show what she was about that day, given plenty of time since, and the market support she enjoyed beforehand is very likely to bear out on another occasion. Her pedigree alone suggests she will prove capable of a lot better, being a half sister to high-class miler Persuasive and the useful Amazour, both of whom have won on an artifical surface; hails from a yard amongst the winners at present and, with the benefit of experience to call on, it wouldn’t at all surprise to see their representative here prove much more competitive this time around.

5.55 KemptonMITIGATE (nb)

The selection is a daughter of Lawman who is a half sister to Group 3-placed French 5.5-6f winner (including twice at Listed level) Sabratah, smart UK/Australian 9-10f winner (including at Listed level) Raw Impulse and useful 7f-1m winner Folly Lodge, out of a 6f Listed winning half sister to 7f 3yo Group 3 winner/Oaks fourth Sueboog (later dam of French 9.5f Group 1 winner Best Of The Bests) and smart 7-12f winner (including at Listed level) Sell Out. This filly is trained by David Elsworth and fetched 90,000gns as a yearling at auction, making plenty of appeal on pedigree as a half sister to a couple of smart performers, including smart French speedster Sabratah who was able to make a winning debut at two. There are also a few other first-time-out winners in the family as well as all-weather winners, and she comes from a stable that can have its youngsters ready to strike at the first time of asking now and again; no surprise whatsoever to see this daughter of Lawman make a winning start to her career.

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.
