WARM SPELL goes one better than last time, to get off the mark in good fashion at Newbury!

The two-year-old son of Mehmas showed promise on debut when coming second at Goodwood last month, and we were delighted to see him build on that today. Overcoming a slightly awkward start, WARM SPELL subsequently settled nicely in midfield under David Egan and responded gamely when asked to quicken, pulling away to win with over a length in hand.

WARM SPELL was a 260,000gns purchase from Yeomanstown Stud at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, and subsequently claims a £20,000 Book 1 bonus for today's win.

Congratulations to owner Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum.
