A First For Profitable At Kempton



All logic pointed to the fact that Darley's first-season sire Profitable (Ire) (by Invincible Spirit {Ire}) was going to be quick off the mark in 2021 and so it proved as Wednesday's Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day EBF Fillies' Novice S. at Kempton saw Thunder Love (GB) provide that early first winner. Pacey from the outset as she made her way across from a wide draw to shadow the leader Chandrika (Ire) (Requinto {Ire}), Amo Racing Limited's bay took command approaching the furlong pole en route to an authoritative 3 1/4-length success as the well-backed 15-8 favourite. Jockey Rossa Ryan said of the George Boughey trainee, “She was quick out and put herself in a position that I could do what I wanted with her. She was having a bit of a look bit and being timid, but as soon as I gave her the office she did it very well. All the signs were positive coming into today and she was a benchmark for where our 2-year-olds are. She has a lot of speed, was quickening away all the way to the line and there's more to come. Maybe later on in the year, she would give herself every opportunity to go six furlongs, but I'd imagine she'll stay over five for now.”

The dam, who captured the Listed Conqueror S. and was third in the G2 Mill Reef S., hails from the family of the G1 Irish Oaks and GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf runner-up L'Ancresse (Ire) (Darshaan {GB}) whose progeny by Frankel (GB) include the G3 Vintage Crop S. winner and G1 Ascot Gold Cup third Master of Reality (Ire) and last week's debut winner and TDN Rising Star Sibila Spain (Ire). Also related to the Irish Oaks heroine Moonstone (GB) (Dalakhani {Ire}) and the G1 Prix Saint-Alary winner Cerulean Sky (Ire) (Darshaan {GB}), she has a yearling colt by Massaat (Ire) to follow.
