Ghaiyyath (Ire)

International Glory For Ghaiyyath

Godolphin's Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) continues to go from strength to strength and only had to go about his usual business to add Wednesday's star-studded G1 Juddmonte International to his G1 Coronation Cup and G1 Eclipse S. triumphs. Always content on the front end with William Buick holding on to something, the 11-8 favourite was brought up the centre of the home straight and stayed out of reach of Magical (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) to win by three lengths, with Lord North (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) 1 1/4 lengths away in third....

Ghaiyyath Aims for Group1 Hat Trick in Juddmonte International

Now that all the building blocks are laid on solid foundations, Godolphin's imposing presence Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) is the complete structure as a mature 5-year-old entire capable of enormous efforts. The latest of those was a once barely-conceivable 2 1/4-length defeat of Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) in Sunday's G1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown and he lines up a worthy short-priced favourite for Wednesday's G1 Juddmonte International at York. This is a race that suits his age group, with the likes of Halling (Ire), Singspiel (Ire), Falbrav (Ire) and Sulamani (Ire)...

G1 Coral-Eclipse S. hero Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) will skip the July 25 G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth S. and another throwdown with champion Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), and instead target the G1 Juddmonte International at York on Aug. 19, Racing Post reported.

Charlie Appleby had relayed loud and clear that Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) was now the horse he had been waiting for and Godolphin's dynamic performer proved the point in style in Sunday's G1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown. Casual this time getting to the front after the first half a furlong, the 9-4 second favourite was stalked by Japan (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) with Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) taken back early racing four lengths off his tempo.

Dubawi's Ghaiyyath Sensational In the Coronation Cup

Godolphin's Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) had proven capable of scintillating performances at times during his 2019 campaign and he pulled out another tour de force at Newmarket on Friday when dominating the G1 Hurworth Bloodstock Coronation Cup. Left in no man's land after his imperious 8 1/2-length success in the Feb. 20 G3 Dubai Millennium at Meydan, the 5-year-old who had spreadeagled his opposition in the G1 Grosser Preis von Baden made up for a missed opportunity on World Cup night in some fashion here.
