Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar's colt made a promising debut when fifth at the Craven Meeting in April. He has always shown promise at home and is a colt with potential.

Graham Lee settled Ayrad in the perfect position on the heels of the leaders.

He travelled well throughout before taking over the running with two furlongs to run. Graham nudged him clear under hands and heels and he went on to win comfortably by four lengths.

Roger said: "Ayrad is a lovely colt with a good temperament. He has done it nicely and can hopefully build on it."
