Salisbury 9th September Review
By Paul Simmons

The Allington Maiden Stakes over 7 Furlongs:
Sangelak (Al Sakbe x CR Angel Kate) was held up with a run by Simon Walker but came with his challenge inside the two furlong marker and as he kicked clear inside the final furlong he showed signs of inexperience but powered home under Simon Walker for owner/breeder HH Sheikh Mohammed and the in form Bill Smith yard; he looks to have a bright future. Magnum De Piboul (Al Sakbe x Manie De Piboul) was always chasing the winner and never looked like passing him but was staying on well in the final furlong. Elizan (Makzan x Elite Star Ku) made an eye catching debut and was always handy, he ran on well in the final furlong and was clear of Djazira at the line.

The iimia Wealth Management Handicap Stakes 0-95 over 1 Mile:
Jelvita (Njewman x Vite Amine) made all for a confident win for the Herrod yard, she was always in command and Danny Burton rode a well judged ride to take the initiative and drive the mare clear in the final furlong to win by a decent four lengths. Osaira (Tidjani x Cassels Celeste) was always playing second fiddle to the impressive winner, she chased hard inside the final furlong but the winner had flown. Back in third was a disappointing Madid (Bengali D’Albret x Kahina El Kihm) who seems to have lost his way slightly this term.

The Thruxton Down Open Handicap Stakes over 1 Mile 6 Furlongs:
CS Al Wahed (Bengali D’Albret x Cikada) came right back to form as he bravely tried to make all, he was powering home under his usual resolute gallop and led till the two furlong marker when he was joined by a cruising Malik D’Or, the two gallant war horses fought out a battle royal inside the final furlong and it was head to head right to the line with Malik D’Or (Dormane x Malika Fontenay) just holding on by the shortest of heads. CS Al Wahed lost nothing in defeat and looked right back to his best. Whilst Taabeer (Vasilisk x Bisbille) was a shade disappointing back in third and is perhaps feeling the effects of a hard race on Dubai Day.

The Jebel Ali Racing Club Stakes 0-75 over 7 Furlongs:
Simon Walker was again back in the winners enclosure riding a hatrick with HH Sheikh Mohammed’s smart colt CS Charma (Amer x Ciarosa). He was held up with a run and produced inside the last three furlongs under a superb ride from Walker to lead and he kicked on again in the final furlong to won easily by three lengths. Penny Black (Chndaka x Pevunja) once again ran a superb race, she was always travelling well and was following the winner through in the slip stream but never looked like passing, her turn is near. Carol Legg’s smart improving stallion Mushammer (Passem Lotois x Kawzah Tiki) was always there abouts and finished hard and fast inside the final furlong to stay on for third ahead of Estival.

The ARO Sweepstakes 0-60 over 1 Mile:
Moogali (Bengali D’Albret x GAS Pepelka) hadn’t shown much in two runs this season but she made no mistake under a determined ride from Sam Holdsworth here, she was always cruising in behind the leaders and came with her run inside the final furlong and came with a wet sail in the final furlong to draw clear at the line to win by a comfortable three lengths. Pepita De Carrere (Guytou De Carrere x Assada El Baraka) ran another sound race back in second, held up and making smooth headway, she chased the winner all the way but was never nearer; she appears to be in the grip of the handicapper at present. Floren (Bengali D’Albret x Florys De Nautiac) made most of the running and to his credit stuck grimly to his task inside the final furlong and held on for third ahead of Mustameet.

The Bishopstone Extended Handicap Stakes 0-45 over 6 Furlongs:
Plus (Djouras Tu x Sherrie Noreen) has been running well this season and she really came of age here under a fantastic ride from Fred Offord for the David Paton team, she was always going well and came with a smooth run inside the final two furlongs and powered clear easily in the last furlong to win going away by six lengths. CS Lafaz (Sambist x Kilcummer Layla) ran another sound race back in second, he chased the winner inside the final furlong but was always being held; he looks to be coming to hand. Whilst Egypt (Marawan x Sareefa) ran well again in third and seems to prefer these sprint trips, she was always up with the pace and ran on well inside the final half furlong to hold onto third ahead of Sharka.
