Owned by Sheikh Mohammed Obaid, Jumira Bridge was allotted a handicap mark of 88 following three promising runs as a juvenile, which included a sixth-place finish in hot sales company at Doncaster.
The son of Invincible Spirit, who is a half-brother to Group 3-winning stable companion Spangled, did not need to improve on that form to get off the mark at the fourth attempt, travelling powerfully in behind the leaders before extending away on the bridle to win by two and a half lengths as his prohibitive price of 1/12 suggested he should.
Roger said: “This was a poor race, but Jumira Bridge did it nicely and he travels like he is a classy animal. This was his first start dropped to five furlongs and he has bags of speed. We will look at handicap options for him now.”
