New winners for Proclamation and Kayf Tara

03/03/11 – Covert Decree impressive in seven-length maiden strike

Members of Proclamation’s second crop are being prepared to take to the track in the near future but meanwhile his debutants continue to show promise, including the highly impressive recent winner Covert Decree.

The three-year-old is trained by Clive Cox and was second on debut in February over nine-and-a-half furlongs at Wolverhampton. Returning to the same track to tackle the same distance, she looks a filly to follow after winning by seven lengths on 2 March.

Bred by A M Tombs, Covert Decree is out of Armada Grove, by Fleetwood. She has a two-year-old full-brother and a yearling half-sister by Bertolini.

Kayf Tara has also had a successful week with three winners on the board. The Marston Stud-bred Westmeath has now won a point-to-point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle following his four-length success in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden Hurdle (2m4f) at Leopardstown on 27 February.

Only out of the frame once in five starts, the six-year-old gelding is owned by Gigginstown House Stud and trained by Paul Nolan. He is a son of the Gulch mare Squaw Talk.

The same day, eight-year-old mare Tarabela scored by nine lengths in testing conditions at Towcester in the 2m6f Handicap Chase. She was bred by Mrs S M Reeks from the Roc Imp mare Rocky Revival and is also a hurdles winner and has been placed on four occasions.

Kayf Tara six-year-old Cantlow won a three-mile maiden hurdle on only his second start under rules on 23 February, having previously been placed in a point-to-point. Bought at Brightwells in December by trainer Paul Webber for £20,000, he also went through the ring as a yearling at Fairyhouse when sold by his breeder Ann Jenkins for €24,000.

Bertolini’s old favourite Suits Me, now eight and still displaying plenty of enthusiasm for the game, was back in the winner’s enclosure for the twelfth time this week. He won over 10 furlongs at his favourite track Lingfield, which was the scene of his victory in the Listed Mill Wood Winter Open Stakes. Suits Me, who won first time out over seven furlongs at two and has raced in every subsequent season, has also placed on 21 occasions and has now earned a total of £184,553.
