Relation to Clodovil to make debut at Chepstow
By Chris Hill 5:38PM 12 SEP 2016
CHEPSTOW'S opening 7f maiden at 2.10pm on Tuesday features the debut of It's How We Roll, a three-parts brother to 2003 Poule d'Essai des Poulains hero Clodovil.
The Charlie Hills-trained colt will be bidding to build upon a successful weekend for Coolmore's champion Australian sire Fastnet Rock, who was responsible for three group winners over the weekend courtesy of Intricately in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes, Rivet in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes and Zhukova in the Group 3 Enterprise Stakes.
It's How We Roll is out of the 1997 Group 2 Prix de l'Opera winner Clodora, a daughter of Linamix who has produced six winners to date, three of them earning black type.
The exploits of Clodovil ensured Clodora was highly sought after when offered by the Aga Khan Studs in foal to Azamour at the 2007 Arqana December Breeding Stock Sale with Horse France securing the mare for €380,000.
Her subsequent foal, Colombian, went on to claim the 2012 renewal of the Group 3 Gordon Richards Stakes whilst another of her earlier foals, the Rock Of Gibraltar filly Clodovina, was second in a French Listed race before foaling Canndal, a 1m2f winner and last year's Grade 1 Belmont Derby runner-up.
Half-sister to Master Carpenter in Listowel debut
The mile fillies maiden at Listowel sees Marvellous Ways, a half-sister to 2014 Group 3 Prix Daphnis and Listed Heron Stakes winner Master Carpenter, bidding to make the perfect start to her career when lining-up for trainer Willie McCreery at 3.25pm.
By Lawman, sire of Saturday's St Leger hero Harbour Law, Marvellous Ways is out of the In The Wings mare Fringe, a 1m1f winning half-sister to Listed scorer Mount Elbrus.
Marvellous Ways was bred by Naiff Sa and Newtown Stud and hails from the family of European Group 1 winners Chinese White, Invincible Spirit, Nayarra and Rafha.
Siblings to stakes winner in action at Yarmouth
Yarmouth's penultimate 6f maiden at 4.50pm features a couple of blue-blooded three-year-olds in Equiano filly Blynx and Forever Yours, a son of Canford Cliffs.
Out of the dual 6f winner Desert Lynx, a daughter of Green Desert, Blynx is a half-sister to eight winners including Listed Eternal Stakes victress Nufoos, dam of 2009 Middle Park Stakes hero Awzaan, 2014 Sweet Solera Stakes conqueror Muraaqaba and dual Listed scorer Muteela.
Forever Yours looks likely to be suited by the step down in trip with the Dean Ivory-trained contender having been unplaced on both his previous starts over 7f and a mile and is from a family successful over sprint trips.
Bred by Ballylinch Stud, Forever Yours is out of the five-time 5f winner and 2006 Group 2 Queen Mary heroine Gilded.
A daughter of Redback, Gilded has foaled two previous winners, the most significant being the Lope De Vega filly Fort Del Oro who has registered three wins at Listed level including two at Naas this season in the 5f Woodlands Stakes and 6f Sweet Mimosa Stakes.
Offered by Ballylinch Stud at the 2014 Tattersalls December Yearling Sale, Forever Yours was purchased by Ivory for 11,000gns.
Well-related Sun Lover out to break maiden at Thirsk
Three-year-old Oasis Dream colt Sun Lover makes his seasonal reappearance for Roger Varian in Thirsk's mile maiden at 5pm.
The Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum-owned colt was placed third behind subsequent Listed scorer Tashweeq when seen at Newmarket last August.
From the family of champion European juvenile Fasliyev, Sun Lover was offered by his part-breeder Lofts Hall Stud at the 2014 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale where he was purchased by John Warren for 360,000gns.
Sun Lover is the second foal produced by the 6f winner Come Touch The Sun, a Fusaichi Pegasus half-sister to four-time Group 1 heroine Misty For Me – dam of this season's Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes victress Roly Poly – last year's Prix Marcel Boussac winner Ballydoyle and Listed scorer Twirl.
