Twafeeg A New TDN Rising Star For Far Above


After the excitement of the Derby, there was a moment of futurity at the start of Doncaster's evening meeting on Saturday as Twafeeg (Ire) (Far Above {Ire}–Disko {Ire}, by Kodiac {GB}) became the latest TDN Rising Star with her impresive success in the 6 1/2-furlong maiden. Sent off at 18-1, the Archie Watson-trained newcomer from the first crop of Starfield Stud's resident tanked her way to the front soon after the start under Connor Beasley. Sent clear passing the two-furlong pole, Sheikh Hamed Dalmook Al Maktoum's 65,000gns Tattersalls Book 3 bargain was notably green in front en route to a 1 1/2-length defeat of the 525,000gns Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up purchase and 9-4 favourite Arabian Dusk (GB) (Havana Grey {GB}). Adding real substance to the form 3 1/4 lengths further back in third was Ripple Effect (GB) (Kameko), who had previously finished closer to TDN Riding Star Mountain Breeze (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), while the sixth-placed Never Forget You (Ire) (No Nay Never) was also beaten further than she had been by another TDN Rising Star in Spherical (GB) (Blue Point {Ire}).
