Another double for team Highclere came over the weekend when the John and Jake Warren purchased Predominance justified favouritism to win a 7f Handicap at Haydock, William Haggas reported after the race that he would be aiming him at the Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot.
The second success was when 3YO Opposition won his maiden with ease at Doncaster over 1m4f, trainer Ed Dunlop said ‘he has done well physically over the winter and there is a lot more to come from this scopey individual’.
Paco Boy sired two very impressive maiden winners this weekend!
Maneen, trained by Dermot Weld, won on his second time of asking beating full brother to Roderic O’Connor in a decent maiden at Limerick on Saturday over a mile.
Imperial Aviator trained by Roger Charlton decisively put aside an incredibly smart field of Derby prospects at Leicester on Saturday over 1m2f and looks to be a Group horse in the making.
Postponed (Dubawi x Ever Rigg) starts 2016 with a double in Dubai, including the Gr.1 Sheema Classic. Postponed was born and raised at Highclere Stud, bred by St Albans Bloodstock and purchased by John Warren Bloodstock as a yearling for 360,000 GNS. Postponed is one to follow this summer with trainer Roger Varian looking at the Gr.1 Coronation Cup at Epsom for him.
