Talaayeb, a 2017 G1 Irish 1000 Guineas entry, was steadied to find cover in mid division after an alert departure in this first go. Inching ever closer from halfway, the well-backed 10-1 chance challenged full of run entering the final furlong and quickened smartly under mild coaxing up the hill to score by an impressive 2 1/2 lengths from Neshmeya (GB) (Lawman {Fr}). “I got a good tow into the race and she really pulled away in the last furlong,” enthused rider Paul Mulrennan. “The further she went the better she went and she’ll definitely stay a mile in the future.” Trainer Owen Burrows added, “She had worked nicely at home and I was very pleased with that. She was very professional and although she was stuck in stall one, Paul managed to get her covered up and she will have learned plenty. She is a neat size, but will do well over the winter and is an exciting prospect. We can dare to dream. We will get our heads together and have a chat about what happens next.” The homebred bay is out of stakes-winning G1 Epsom Oaks third Rumoush (Rahy) and is a half-sister to last term’s G2 Royal Lodge S. placegetter Muntazah (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), the yearling colt Wadilsafa (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and a yearling filly by Dubawi (Ire). Her second dam is dual stakes scorer Sarayir (Mr. Prospector)–herself kin to Nashwan, Nayef, Unfuwain, et al–who also produced G1 1000 Guineas and G1 Coronation S. victress Ghanaati (Giant’s Causeway) and G1 Champion S. runner-up and G3 Cumberland Lodge-winning sire Mawatheeq (Danzig). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $6,710.
