Enbihaar looks destined for the top following Group 2 win

Al Madhar: son of Siyouni looked impressive on debut at Newmarket

The Shadwell horses have been in fine fettle this month, a point emphasised by Sheikh Hamdan sitting on top of the leading owner rankings.

ENBIHAAR is beginning to mature into a high-class filly for John Gosden and displayed all her battling qualities to land the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks at Haydock this month. The four-year-old daughter of Redoute’s Choice could step up in grade with the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks a possible target.

ELARQAM is another horse who is improving with age and following a good run at Royal Ascot, he dug in deep to win the Listed Gala Stakes at Sandown.

The beautifully bred four-year-old – a son of Frankel and Attraction – could possibly run in the Group 2 York Stakes on Saturday, a race in which he finished third last year.

AL MADHAR put up arguably the most impressive performance of the month when winning a competitive Newmarket maiden at the July meeting over 7f. The Richard Hannon-trained two-year-old is certainly bred to be good, being a son of red-hot stallion Siyouni and the Group 2-placed Galileo mare Phiz. He is bred on the same cross as Shadwell’s talented three-year-old filly MAQSAD, who is being targeted at the Group 1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood.

MUHAARAR has supplied several impressive first-crop two-year-old winners, headed by the Joseph O’Brien-trained UNFORGETABLE, who holds an entry in the Group 3 Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown on Thursday.

MUKHADRAM has also been in flying form and NAYADE became his 30th individual first-crop winner when scoring in a 7f maiden at San Sebastian.

Retired stallion SAHKEE was also in the headlines this month when RED TEA stuck in the Group 2 Kilboy Estate Stakes.
