In training


DOB: 04 Apr 2016
Moohaajim x Bahati (Intikhab)
Owner: Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum

This colt is by Moohaajim who won the Gr.2 Mill Reef over 6f and was second in the Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes. The dam Bahati was useful and was placed in Listed company over 6f at three. She has produced the dual Listed winner Tabarrak and a first time out two-year-old winner who was Listed-placed, so this colt is bred to be precocious.

Jabalaly made his debut in a novice at Doncaster over six furlongs in July, and showed a huge amount of promise. He was far too green early on, missing the break completely and forfeiting any realistic chance of winning the race in the process. However, despite that difficult start, he travelled powerfully into the race and looked very threatening over a furlong out. He ultimately found one too good (subsequent Jersey Stakes winner Space Traveller) but it was a bright racecourse introduction.

He showed similar promise on his first two runs as a three-year-old, but his handicap debut at Doncaster proved something of a disappointment. He might yet want a step up to a mile and he has been gelded since his last outing to see if that might allow a little further improvement.
