Tomorrowcomes looking to break her maiden
Daughter of Yesterday looking to break maiden
By Chris Hill 5:11PM 22 AUG 2016
YARMOUTH'S opening mile maiden for fillies at 2pm on Tuesday sees two well-related participants bidding to record a first win for their connections.
Richard Fahey is represented by the juvenile filly Tomorrowcomes, two weeks after the daughter of Oasis Dream finished third at Nottingham over 1m½f.
Out of the 2003 Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Yesterday, a Sadler's Wells sister to the Group 1-winning juvenile Quarter Moon, dam of last year's Pretty Polly Stakes heroine Diamondsandrubies, Tomorrowcomes is a half-sister to 1m2f winner High Baroque.
Offered by the Coulonces Consignment at last year's Arqana Deauville August Yearling Sale, she was bought back by the vendors for €300,000.
Fifth at Kempton for Marco Botti on her debut, the Mizzen Mast filly Every Nice Girl will be attempting to score for the first time when lining up in the same race.
A daughter of the winning Zilzal mare Joop, a half-sister to Grade 2 victress Devilish Touch and black type winners Grecian Touch and Bare With Me, Every Nice Girl is a half-sister to six winners including 1m2f US Grade 2 hero Redding Colliery and Listed scorer Joopy Doopy.
She has twice appeared at public auction, originally making $50,000 when bought by Longway Stables at last year's Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
The filly was offered at the Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up Sale this year but failed to change hands and was bought back by Longway Stables for 58,000gns.
Half-brother to Exosphere entered at Newbury
Newbury's mile maiden at 4.40pm offers the Hugo Palmer-trained juvenile Ettihadi the chance to improve upon his debut fourth-place finish achieved at Lingfield earlier this month.
A son of Rip Van Winkle, Ettihadi was bred by Clare Castle Stud out of the 2002 Italian Oaks runner-up Bright And Clear, a Danehill half-sister to the Group 1-winning juvenile Tenby and dual Listed scorer Bristol Channel.
Bright And Clear has produced four previous winners with Ettihadi, a 30,000gns purchase by Stephen Hillen at last year's Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, being a half-brother to this season's Group 2 Jockey Club Stakes victor Exosphere.
Newbury maiden hosts close relation to Joshua Tree
Later on the card, the 1m4f maiden at 5.45pm features a trio of contenders with decent pedigrees who came close to registering a first success on their most recent start.
The Montjeu filly Fashion Design finished second to the subsequent Listed-placed To Eternity at Wolverhampton.
Out of the 1m Grade 1 Matron Stakes heroine Sense Of Style, a Thunder Gulch half-sister to 1999 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches winner Valentine Waltz, the Sir Michael Stoute-trained three-year-old is a sister to 1m7f Listed scorer Only A Pleasure.
From the family of top-class milers Immortal Verse and Last Tycoon, Sense Of Style foaled a filly by So You Think in 2014 and last year produced a colt by Declaration Of War.
John Gosden's three-year-old colt Henry Croft, a son of Dubawi, was beaten a head at Brighton earlier in the month.
A Darley homebred out of the triple Group/Grade 3 winner Karen's Caper, a daughter of War Chant, Henry Croft is a half-brother to the 2012 Group 3 UAE 2,000 Guineas hero Kinglet.
Togetherness, a three-year-old son of Pour Moi, stayed on well to finish second for Harry Dunlop at Chepstow two weeks ago.
A €200,000 purchase by Badgers Bloodstock at the 2014 Goffs Orby Yearling Sale, Togetherness is a three-parts brother to the triple Canadian International hero Joshua Tree.
Bred by Castlemartin Stud and Skymarc Farm out of the Canadian Grade 3 winner Madeira Mist, a Grand Lodge half-sister to five-time South African Grade 1 victress Inara, he is also a half-brother to the winners Stencive and Shingan.
A year after foaling Togetherness, Madeira Mist successfully produced twin fillies by Invincible Spirit, subsequently named Magic Mist and Madeira Moon, while last year she foaled a colt by Camelot.
