NEWMARKET’S opening two-year-old fillies’ maiden at 2.05pm hosts a couple of blue-blooded debutantes with both the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Spatial and Charlie Appleby’s Wuheida taking the eye on pedigree.

Representing Cheveley Park Stud is Spatial, a daughter of their Group 2 May Hill Stakes and Windsor Forest Stakes winner Spacious who was runner-up in the 1,000 Guineas, Falmouth Stakes and Matron Stakes.

By Nayef, Spacious is a half-sister to the triple Canadian Grade 2 winner Dimension and has produced two previous foals in the unraced four-year-old Galileo colt Gallo Galante and Aiax Il Gigante, a three-year-old colt by Azamour who made his debut earlier this season in Italy.

Darley homebred Wuheida is a daughter of their flagship stallion Dubawi and the Singspiel mare Hibaayeb, who was trained by Saeed Bin Suroor to four victories from a mile to 1m4f including at the highest level in the 2009 Fillies’ Mile and 2010 Yellow Ribbon Stakes and the 2010 Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes.

Hibaayeb’s first foal, the three-year-old Street Cry filly Lacey’s Lane has been placed three times in Britain and France while earlier this year she produced a sister to Wuheida.

Half-brother to Exosphere in Lingfield debut

Hugo Palmer sends the two-year-old colt Ettihadi to Lingfield for his first racecourse start in the 7½f maiden at 6.50pm.

A son of triple Group 1 hero Rip Van Winkle, Ettihadi is out of the 7f winner and Italian Oaks runner-up Bright And Clear, a Danehill half-sister to 1992 Grand Criterium and 1993 Dante winner Tenby and dual Listed scorer Bristol Channel.

Bright And Clear has produced four previous winners with Ettihadi being a half-brother to this season’s Group 2 Jockey Club Stakes victor and Princess of Wales’s Stakes third Exosphere.

Bred by Clare Castle Farm in Ireland, Ettihadi was purchased by Stephen Hillen Bloodstock for 30,000gns at last year’s Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

Three-year-old Mashood out to emulate speedy siblings

Later on the card, Manshood will be bidding to improve upon the eighth place he achieved at Newmarket last month when lining up in the 6f maiden at 7.50pm.

The William Haggas-trained son of Iffraaj carries Sheikh Hamdan’s famous blue and white silks after being purchased by Shadwell for 380,000gns at the 2014 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

He was bred by John McEnery out of the Green Desert mare Thawrah, an unraced half-sister to Golden Jubilee Stakes winner Malhub and US Grade 3 heroine Dhaamer, who McEnery picked up from Shadwell for just 17,000gns at the 2005 December Mare Sale.

From the family of 5f Group 3 winner and leading two-year-old sire Dandy Man, Manshood is a half-brother to three winners including Heeraat, winner of the 6f Group 3 Hackwood Stakes for Sheikh Hamdan and Haggas in 2013, and the 5f Listed Dragon Stakes scorer Ambiance, while Book 1 of this year’s Tattersalls October Yearling Sale is set to feature Thawrah’s latest registered offspring, a brother to Manshood consigned by Rossenarra Stud.
