He was bought at the Goresbridge breeze up sale by Nick Bradley. He is from the first crop of Frankel’s brother Noble Mission.

PROFILE

Headman comes from Juddmonte’s family of the moment and he is from the first crop of Kingman. Headman’s dam Deliberate is a half sister to Flintshire  and the second dam Dance Routine is a full sister to Concentric the dam of Enable. Deliberate won at 3 in France and has bred three winners from four runners.

A big imposing colt with a lovely action, he looked very impressive when winning on his debut at Newcastle in early November. He couldn’t have won any easier and the runner-up is rated 85. We took a view afterwards that if he was going to be a Guineas horse he needed to have another run for experience purposes, plus he ought to be good enough to cope with a drop back to seven furlongs. While I was disappointed at the time when he finished second, his wide draw didn’t help, the winner was from a strong yard and he was conceding seven pounds. There is every chance he will still be given a Guineas entry but I think he is more likely to be suited by a step up to ten furlongs. He has always been a well-balanced horse and, given his size he did well to win as a two year old. He has potential.

A deep strong filly who ran two good races as a two year old. Beaten a neck on her debut at Newbury it was in tough conditions against more experienced rivals. She confirmed the promise next time at Kempton winning narrowly. The form of her win isn’t easy to assess but she is owner bred and we are keen to get some black type. A big scopey filly, she could be guided towards an Oaks trial in the spring.

Qarasu is by the successful French stallion Le Havre who stands at the Haras de Montfort and Preaux. He is from a family that has had good results in the last few years. It derives from Souk, notable members are Puce, Pongee, Prudenzia, Chicquita and Golden Sword. Another daughter Shouk is responsible for the 2006 champion filly Alexandrova, the Cheveley Park winner Magical Romance, Washington Irvine and Masterofthehorse. Bella Qatara (Dansili) ran four times in France winning at Pornichet-La Baule over 10.5 furlongs, she is out of Alexandrova.

Half-brother to Aspetar, I was pleased with his debut run at Newbury finishing a close second. He was bullied a bit and didn’t get the smoothest of runs before staying on. I thought it was therefore a good run against more experienced opponents. Like his brother and a lot of his sire’s progeny, he seems to enjoy slow ground. We will look for a novice over a mile or ten furlongs in the spring.

PROFILE

Red Impression stems from the Juddmonte foundation mare Nijinsky Star the dam of  Viviana , dam of Sightseek, Tates Creek and the lovely mare Willstar the dam of Etoile Montante.  Her dam Purissima , by the Kentucky Derby winner  Fusaichi Pegasus, has bred three winners to date.

A very promising filly and a very fast one, too. She looked good when winning on her debut at Kempton and the form has worked out well. We then took her to Lingfield and the race went perfectly with the Godolphin runner going very quickly early on and she travelled well throughout. It turned out to be a course record and she won by six lengths. I think six furlongs will be her trip but she may stay an extra furlong in time. Her first target is a new Listed races for three year old fillies over six furlongs at Chelmsford in early May. We will then find out whether the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot (21st June) is a realistic target. A strong filly, she has yet to race on the turf but she gives the impression she will be suited to fast ground.

We will start her off in a ten furlongs novice or maiden and she could be aimed at one of the fillies’ trials. She will stay a mile and a half.

We purposely took our time with him last year withdrawing him at Newmarket in September because of fast ground. We let him take his chance nearly a fortnight later at Nottingham on ground which was marginal. Having travelled well and looking like winning, he got run out of it late on and was beaten narrowly. It was a pleasing run though and he starts his three year old career as a maiden. His sire did very well last year and he has the pedigree to develop into a useful horse. We will start him off over a mile but he’s bred to stay ten furlongs.
