In training


Chestnut Gelding
DOB: 16 Mar 2017
Mayson x Aldeburgh Music (In The Wings)
Owner: Wilmshurst & Attenborough

A March-foaled chestnut colt, he is by the July Cup winner Mayson, out of the unraced In The Wings mare Aldeburgh Music.

It is therefore something of an intriguing pedigree, as Mayson is clearly a speed influence, but Aldeburhg Music is bred along more stout lines. Her progeny have won at up to a mile and a half in France, though she has also got speedier types it must be noted, such as Admiralty Arch and Saint Crepin, who won at six and seven-furlongs as two-year-old respectively.

 It is interesting to note that when Mayson was put to Cambridge Duchess, a daughter of Singspiel, the result was Melonade, who won her first two starts over sprint trips.

Maysong was green on debut at Newmarket before showing much more street smarts when second at Nottingham second time out. He was a respectable fifth at Ayr on his third run and now we are awaiting a handicap mark fo him. He should do well in nurseries on easy ground later in the season.
