In training


Chestnut Filly
DOB: 17 Mar 2015
Iffraaj x Singersongwriter (Independence)
Owner: Cliveden Stud

This filly is by Iffraaj who won multiple Gr.2's over 6f and 7f and was narrowly beaten in a July Cup. The son of Zafonic has proven himself at stud and his best progeny has been the top-class miler  Ribchester. He has also produced the sire of the Champion Stakes winner Almanzor in Wootton Bassett and his yearlings have been in high demand at the sales.

Melodies' dam Singersongwriter was trained here at La Grange and was a winner on debut over seven-furlongs before going on to win over ten-furlongs at three, whilst her dam was hte former Ed Dunlop sstar mare Independence.

Melodies showed real promise at two, finishing second to the subsequent Listed winner Magnolia Springs at Newbury on her second start. She was disappointing in soft ground on her seasonal comeback, but scored nicely at Doncaster on her very next outing in July. That set her up for a tilt at a valuable 0-100 handicap at Newbury the same month, in which she ran with great credit to finish a neck second. She ascneded to a mark of 88 on the back of those efforts, but has been sidelined by injury since.

However, she remains in training for the 2019 season and rates a lovely prospect who we hope might be able to pick up some black-type at some stage.
