Dettori in seventh heaven as Daban stakes Guineas claims with ready win

It is now the norm for Frankie Dettori to win the Nell Gwyn Stakes. It is also the norm for the Nell Gwyn winner to then not win the 1,000 Guineas.

With the trial now run and the Classic looming, John Gosden is not saying the latest Nell Gwyn heroine will win the Guineas – but he is also very much not saying she won’t.

It was for Gosden that Dettori landed his first Nell Gwyn in 1999. Eighteen years on the pair once again teamed up, this time with a filly who had quickened smartly to win a Kempton maiden in November. That was promising. Upped significantly in class for her second start, the promise was fulfilled.

A deep field full of proven Group performers had assembled for a Lanwades Stud-backed contest that has not produced the Guineas winner since 2006. It is far from implausible Daban could bridge that gap, given she overcame racing keenly in the early stages to deliver a sustained challenge that carried her past Unforgettable Filly and Poet’s Vanity.

Most bookmakers quote Daban for the Qipco-sponsored Classic at between 10-1 and 14-1, the same sort of odds attached to Saturday’s Newbury-bound stablemate Dabyah, another to race for Abdullah Saeed Al Naboodah.

“I don’t see any reason why we wouldn’t come back for the Guineas,” said Gosden. “The owner also has Dabyah running in the Fred Darling, but Dabyah has been to France already, so maybe this filly will come here and Dabyah will go back to France.

“I asked the jockey today if she would stay a mile and he thinks she will. That’s all I needed to hear.”

The jockey who passed on those encouraging words has now claimed the last four Nell Gwyns. He certainly likes the fourth.

“She travelled like a winner and she quickened up well,” said Dettori.

“John has kept banging on about her working well and saying she has a great turn of foot. He was spot on.”

Assuming Daban returns here two weeks on Sunday, she will meet the second and third, whose connections were both pleased. “She’s trialled and run very well, so we’ll have a go on the big day,” said Unforgettable Filly’s trainer Hugo Palmer. Andrew Balding expects Poet’s Vanity to “strip fitter” on that day.

Conversely, Ballydoyle pair Roly Poly and Brave Anna were disappointing in seventh and tenth. The operation’s Rhododendron continues to head the Guineas betting at 3-1. In Daban, she may face a proper contender.

“She is the kind of filly who they will know they’ve had a race if they go by her,” said Gosden. “She may well be in the frame. I wouldn’t start banging any more than that but I also wouldn’t discount her.”

Gosden is entitled to be biased, but it seemed a fair assessment.

Acclamation’s Daban Captures the Nell Gwyn

4th at NEW, Gr. Stk, £60,000 G3 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn S. (7f) Winner: Daban (Ire), f, 3 by Acclamation (GB)


Daban | Racing Post

By Sean Cronin

Once-raced prior to this Classic prep, Abdullah Saeed Al Naboodah’s Daban (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) overcame potential stagefright to overturn some proven fillies and become a fascinating latecomer into the picture for the G1 1000 Guineas back here May 7. Keen early held up by Frankie Dettori behind the leaders, the 12-1 shot who showed a deadly turn of acceleration over this seven-furlong trip on Kempton’s Polytrack in November had plenty in reserve for the uphill climb to the line. After mastering fellow outsider Unforgetable Filly (GB) (Sepoy {Aus}) in the last 50 yards, the bay asserted to win by 3/4 of a length and impress her rider in the process. “She travelled brilliantly, she showed a good turn of foot and she can only improve,” Dettori said, before confirming that she is in the class of a Guineas protagonist. “She showed a good attitude. She has won her trial and she’s entitled to give it a go.”

John Gosden had previously collected four renewals of this prestigious Guineas trial, but punters were wary of taking the plunge on this unproven filly who appeared to be filling the void of her stablemate, the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac third Dabyah (Ire) (Sepoy {Aus}), who was instead switched to Saturday’s G3 Fred Darling S. at Newbury. Over-racing towards the stand’s-side rail initially with Dettori intent on maximising this educational opportunity, the bay soon settled with a lead from Kilmah (GB) (Sepoy {Aus}) and was one of a select few ready to make an impact as the 7-2 favourite Roly Poly (War Front) was the first of the main protagonists to issue distress signals. With the determined Unforgetable Filly refusing to allow the long-time leader Poet’s Vanity (GB) (Poet’s Voice {GB}) any peace and Sea of Grace (Ire) (Born To Sea {Ire}) and TDN Rising Star Pamplemousse (Ire) (Siyouni {Fr}) flattering to deceive, it was Daban who gave the most at the finish in what amounted to a highly promising display from such an inexperienced runner.

“I was expecting a good show from her,” Gosden commented. “She’s a sweet, lovely filly and is very relaxed at home. She does have that cruising speed and ability to quicken, which is what a good thoroughbred has. She has quickened up well and she’ll improve from that. She is in the Classic here and in France, so we will talk to the owner about which way he wants to play it. Dabyah has been to France and maybe this filly can come here and Dabyah can go to France. I asked Frankie whether she would stay the mile and he felt should would. I think the well-rated and fancied fillies disappointed early in the race and I do like the second and I was most impressed with the third when she won at Salisbury. I promise you it is easy to knock it, but I think they are talented fillies and lets see what the Fred Darling has and then as usual let’s see what turns up fresh on the day without a run. I think she is the kind of filly that in a race they will know if they go by her. She is tough and has got a great mind. There is no reason a filly like this won’t mentally improve as well as physically improve–she is the type of filly that could well be in the frame.”

Intriguingly, it was at this meeting 12 months ago that the winner’s half-brother Thikriyaat won a conditions event en route to annexing the G3 Thoroughbred S. and finishing runner-up in the G3 Jersey S. The dam is a half to Albisola (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}), who captured the G3 Prix de Flore and was third in the G2 Prix de Sandringham, and also this stable’s G3 Prix Quincey winner and G1 Criterium International runner-up Johnny Barnes (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}). Among her other half-siblings are Bufera (Ire) (King’s Best), responsible for the Listed Prix la Sorellina scorer and G3 Prix Chloe and G3 Prix de Lieurey runner-up Chartreuse (Ire) (Lawman {Fr}), and Tonnara (Ire) (Linamix {Fr}) whose Ectot (GB) (Hurricane Run {Ire}) and Most Improved (Ire) were successful at the top level with the former taking the G1 Criterium International and GI Joe Hirsch Turf Classic and Most Improved registering his career-best in the G1 St. James’s Palace S. Also from the family of the sires Ivan Luis (Fr) and Stagelight (Ire), the Classic-placed Hathrah (Ire) (Linamix {Fr}) and her G1SP daughter Hadaatha (Ire) (Sea the Stars {Ire}), Malaspina also has a 2-year-old colt by Pour Moi (Ire) named Para Mio (Ire) and a yearling full-sister to Daban.

Risultati Ippodromo Snai San Siro Milano Galoppo, riunione di mercoledì 19/04/2017.

Si salva Zurbaran

Chiusura di convegno con l’arrivo serrato tra Zurbaran e Dalia D’Arcadia nel Premio Baitone: la prova ha visto Credarola al comando impegnata da Amelin, con Zurbaran acquattato in scia alla battistrada e Dalia D’Arcadia che si è avvicinata in retta a centro pista. Zurbaran e Dalia D’Arcadia si sono staccati in lotta nei 200 finali, finendo in linea sul traguardo, con il grigio di Cristano Fais, con in sella Luca Maniezzi, che anche con un pò di “mestiere” ha salvato un minimo vantaggio sulla rivale. Al terzo posto Amelin su Credarola.

Sogno nel Cielo, la volta buona

Alla ventisettesima uscita, Sogno nel Cielo ha centrato la prima sospirata vittoria della carriera. Sui 1800 metri della pista circolare, la cavalla allenata da Ridha Haboubi e montata dal giovane Dario Di Tocco ha corso all’attesa, poi in retta è avanzata a larghe folate lungo lo steccato e ha spazzato via gli avversari. Queen Tango si è presentata bene a metà retta, ai 200 finali è passata ma non ha staccato e poco ha potuto sul “finalone” della vincitrice. Fata Birichina è andata davanti ad impostare il ritmo, è stata superata ai 200 finali ma ha mantenuto il terzo posto.

Ariolo, va di moda il grigio

Pronto bis per Silvano Mulas con il grigio Ariolo nella reclamare sui 2000 metri in pista circolare: presentato bene da Valentino Ficara in questa sua prova di rientro, il portacolori della Crossing Promotion ha pedinato come un’ombra la battistrada Altarmont, è passato in vantaggio ai 400 finali e ha allungato nel tratto conclusivo. Altarmont dopo aver tenuto andatura brillante è calata perdendo anche le piazze: Bay Marose con valida progressione è emerso chiaramente al secondo posto, mentre Piccolagladiatrice ha vinto la volata per il terzo posto.

La “prima” di Cotton in Law

Prima vittoria in carriera per Cotton In Law, che dopo prove non brillantissime su distanze maggiori, ha trovato l’acuto sui 1400 metri della dirittura di San Siro. La portacolori dell’Azienda Agricola San Mariano, con in sella Silvano Mulas, si è portata subito in prima linea, ha allungato bene sull’attacco del favorito Giovane Holden e ha vinto con buon margine sul rivale, che alla fine si è anche dovuto guardare dall’affondo di Yellowgreen, conservando comunque un minimo vantaggio e salvando il 2° posto.

Poppet’s Lachy, la linea “giovane”

Clou del pomeriggio era il Premio Indian Mary, Handicap Limitato sui 1400 metri in pista dritta con la sfida delle tre anni alle più anziane. E proprio la giovane Poppet’s Lachy ha messo il suo sigillo sulla prova. Scarica e con l’allievo Gabriele Cannarella in sella, la portacolori della scuderia Rencati ha marcato stretto la favorita Musa D’Oriente, subito in prima linea, l’ha attaccata duramente ai 300 finali per prendere chiaramente la meglio nell’ultimo furlong. Musa D’Oriente ha pagato il peso, African Queen lungo lo steccato è emersa al terzo posto su Nakaef e Naldina.

Grand Oriente, rientro ok

Ad aprire la riunione di galoppo di mercoledì era il Premio Robbiate, una reclamare per anziani sui 1600 metri della pista circolare: i due soggetti più attesi della vigilia si sono disputati il successo con Grand Oriente che, nonostante fosse al rientro da dicembre, ha preso chiaramente la meglio negli ultimi 200 metri su Sempre Drago, che alla fine aveva chiuso da favorito al Totalizzatore e ha provato a giocarsela in testa. In sella al cavallo allenato da Luciano Vitabile, Dario Vargiu che nell’occasione ha dovuto faticare poco. Terzo posto per Marea Rosa.

Jockey news: Gabriele Cannarella ingaggiato da Alduino Botti. L’Agente sarà Andrea Arbau


Il mercato dei fantini è sempre in continuo fermento. Mercato interno, si intende, con giovani e grandi che si avvicendano spesso con vari agenti sulla piazza a seconda della soddisfazione. L’ultima novità di cui diamo conto riguarda il promettente talentino siciliano Gabriele Cannarella, il quale sarà gestito da Andrea Arbau ed è approdato proprio negli ultimi giorni alla corte dei Botti a Milano, per quello che potrebbe essere un vero e proprio corso di laurea per la vita da professionista. Il giovane jockey di Siracusa, 18 anni e la patente da pro presa a Malta e fratello minore dell’altrettanto bravo Giuseppe Cannarella, complice un peso basso ed una scaltrezza che altri alla sua età non hanno, comincerà dunque ad alzare l’asticella delle aspettative lavorando con il miglior team italiano, che ne ha rilevato la scritta e per i quali monterà con 2 chili di discarico. Già mercoledì a Milano osserveremo con curiosità le sue gesta. 

Il suo miglior risultato in termini di Palmares è stata la vittoria nel Premio Capannelle in sella a Sole Di Pio, ma in generale vanta circa 60 vittorie in carriera e molte condizionate.  Non male per uno che ha solo 18 anni…

Gabriele Cannarella è disponibile per gli allenatori interessati contattando Andrea Arbau al seguente numero: +39 3920051437.
