Shadwell’s Jash (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}), who had already impressed on debut when off the mark by 4 1/2 lengths at Newmarket Aug. 25, had saved something extra special for this second outing in Friday’s Excalibur Communications Novice S. over six furlongs at Salisbury. Able to saunter to the lead under Jim Crowley from the break without any effort, the 1-8 favourite was always completely in hand and strode clear of Ginger Fox (GB) (Iffraaj {GB}) still in second gear to score by nine lengths.

Jash, who holds an entry in the G1 Middle Park S. at Newmarket in 15 days’ time, is out of Miss Azeza (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}) who scored on her debut but was retired after twice refusing to race. She is a granddaughter of Lady Zonda (GB) (Lion Cavern) who produced the G1 Fillies’ Mile and GI Yellow Ribbon S. heroine Hibaayeb (GB) (Singspiel {Ire}), herself the dam of the GI Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf and G1 Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Wuheida (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}). The dam’s yearling filly is by No Nay Never.
