when winning the maiden after two years off the track, he slammed
the second Vaccara by eight lengths in the style of a smart horse.
Vaccara (Vadeer X Baccara De Carrere( Djourman)) traveled well
and quickened nicely but was no match for the winner; this was
a promising racecourse debut and he can build on this effort.

CS Clarion (Chndaka X Cikada (Klarnet) - whom he beat seven lengths
at Dunstall Park. The pair pulled clear of Pavots Dreamboy (Pavot
Al Maury X Autumn Dream (Autumn Royal)) who was struggling over
this trip that stretches his stamina. It was another frustrating

challenges of Maiyzah and Ayam Zaman. The second Maiyzah (Tayar

be winning soon, whilst Ayam Zaman (WF Wincent X Saltiki (Tiki
Tessar)) ran promisingly and will be interesting if stepped up
in trip to ten furlongs.
