Dubawi Colt A New Rising Star At Doncaster


The word was out about Dubawi Legend (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) for Thursday's Cazoo EBF Novice S. over seven furlongs at Doncaster and it was easy to see why as the apple of Hugo Palmer's eye flashed past the post an emphatic five-length winner to earn TDN Rising Star status. Talked up by the trainer after the Listed Aphrodite S. success of the half-sister Golden Pass (GB) (Golden Horn {GB}) on Saturday, the latest classy prospect for Dr Ali Ridha showed speed to track the leaders racing wide throughout the early stages. Tanking to the head of affairs with two furlongs remaining, the 11-8 favourite saw off Amo Racing's £410,000 Tattersalls Ireland Goresbridge Breeze-Up topper Brasil Power (Fr) (Dark Angel {Ire}) soon after and surged clear from that rival as The Queen's newcomer Park Street (GB) (New Approach {Ire}) clung on for third, a further length away.

Dubawi Legend, who was making his debut in the race in which Albasheer (Ire) (Shamardal) also earned TDN Rising Star status last year, is out of the talented Lovely Pass (Ire) (Raven's Pass) who raced for Charlie Appleby and was third in the Listed Chesham S. before going on to take the Listed UAE 1000 Guineas and finish runner-up in the G3 UAE Oaks. Her dam is the G2 Falmouth S. winner Macadamia (Ire)(Classic Cliche {Ire}), who also produced the Listed Pipalong S. scorer Spirit Raiser (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and is a half to the group 3-winning Scandinavian champion Pistachio (GB) (Unblest {GB}) and the listed-winning and group-placed Captivator (GB) (Motivator {GB}). Lovely Pass's yearling colt is by Spirit Raiser's sire Invincible Spirit.
