MITBAAHY gave the team a timely boost heading into Royal Ascot week with a superb victory in the Listed Coral Scurry Stakes at Sandown on Saturday.

A winner already this season, Mitbaahy continued his progression with a first win at Pattern level, sweeping from last to first under David Egan in the 5f feature.

The three-year-old son of Profitable was waited with by Egan, before delivering a devastating turn of foot down the outside of the field to triumph by a comfortable length and a half. Although Mitbaahy does hold an entry for Royal Ascot in the Palace Of Holyroodhouse Stakes, a return to Sandown next month for the Group 3 Coral Charge looks a more likely destination.

Many congratulations to owners Hasan Mefareh Alajmi and Fawzi Nass and the rest of the team! It will be exciting to see how far this promising sprinter can go.
