Baradar galloped to a comfortable victory at York on Saturday where he defied a 6lb penalty under David Egan to win the 7f novice.
Baradar once again showed his liking for soft ground having made a winning debut at Newbury in similar conditions in August. He still ran a decent race in defeat on his second start in the Haynes, Hanson & Clark Conditions Stakes where he was beaten 1¾l by the winner Yibir. The ground was good that day and a return to soft conditions at York on Saturday allowed him to stretch out well under David Egan to record a 2¾l success, with his two closest pursuers being fillies carrying 11lb less on their backs.
From the first crop of Muhaarar, Baradar is a half-brother to stable mate Roseman who will line up in either the QE II or the Champions Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.
