2018 bay colt by Gutaifan (Ire)
ex Beacon of Hope (Ire) (Barathea (Ire))

At the Tattersalls Ireland yearling sale in 2016 we came away with a grey colt for €27,000 who subsequently ended up being Lord Riddiford, a high-class sprint handicapper whose finest hour came when winning at Glorious Goodwood as a three-year-old. However, also won as a two-year-old and has added a valuable handicap at Chelmsford to his CV this year.

Lot 142 at Tattersalls Ireland this year was Lord Riddiford’s younger brother by Gutaifan. This is Gutaifan’s first season with runners and he has already produced plenty of winners including our own Coastal Mist. The colt’s mother, Beacon Of Hope is a good breeder having already produced five winners from seven runners. Delving further back into this horses pedigree you can find the high-class speedster First Trump who won the G1 Middle Park as a two-year-old.

At €14,000 I feel he was a bit of a snip. Anybody wanting early action next year should seriously consider this colt.

PRICE: €14,000
