Exciting filly MODAARA bolts up at Kempton Racecourse, and Opulence Thoroughbreds’ LIR SPECIALE follows her lead to make it a double on the card for the yard.

We’d been looking forward to MODAARA’s seasonal debut, and the three-year-old daughter of Dubawi did not disappoint, flying home under Jack Mitchell for a remarkable 13L win.

MODAARA is a full sister to the Varian Stable-trained Fooraat and Godolphin’s globetrotting G1 winner Benbatl.

Congratulations to owner Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum.

Later on in the card it was the turn of Opulence Thoroughbreds’ LIR SPECIALE, last seen winning over course and distance in October. The four-year-old son of Prince of Lir sluiced down the inside rail to make it a comfortable victory under Ray Dawson.

Congratulations to Opulence Thoroughbreds and connections!
