David O'Meara

    Already housing a duel Group1/Grade 1 winner and performer in Suedois, Yorkshire trainer David O'Meara will hope to find more horses of that quality among his classy string.

  • Stable Tours

There was another Red Letter season in store for David O’Meara in 2017 when he passed the century mark for a fifth season in succession with his 109 winners on the domestic front collecting £1,692,653 in prize money and Suedois proving a major flagbearer when winning the Grade 1 Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland in October to add to an earlier Group 2 success in Ireland.

O’Meara has already cast his net far and wide to notch up a £105,000 prize with Intisaab in Doha in February and the astute master of Upper Helmsley on the outskirts of York has shown that when it comes to developing and placing horses that he is right there up with the best.

Bravery landed the Lincoln Handicap for O’Meara 12 months ago and that horse may have to look to the Spring Mile this time around with the stable’s hope looking to be pinned the impressive Lord Glitters who also has an alternative engagement in the Doncaster Mile.

Whatever the outcome of the first big handicap of the turf season, O’Meara has plenty of interesting contenders for the major handicaps and above this season and he kindly discussed the main firepower of his team with Tony Elves of ATR.

Al Qahwa (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 16 starts. Winner on his debut for the stable at York (6f) last May when beating Muntadab a neck off a mark of 94.

Trainer Says:

He won first time out at York last year and likes soft ground and six furlongs. He may start on the same day as the Lincoln meeting with the view to looking at the Dante meeting and he will be aimed at those good sprint handicaps.

He is a new horse we acquired this year and we are just getting to know him. He has some good form from last year over a mile and a quarter and there is a race there at Pontefract in mid April that might start in.

Areen Heart (FR)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 12 starts and joined the stable from Richard Fahey in September. Has had four starts for the stable, all unplaced

Trainer Says:

He is quite a hot horse and he gets himself a little worked up and he is a seven furlong/miler. We ran him a few times last year without winning and hopefully he will settle down a bit this year and slow up and improve in that way.

Trainer Says:

He is a great old horse for me and he is nine-years-old now. He won a Group 3 last year and was placed a few times. We might lower our sights this year and go back handicapping with him and let him tell us at what level he can compete at. He hasn’t shown any signs of age yet.

Trainer Says:

He came from France last year and had a couple of runs and didn’t do anything. We left him off and he’s back in this year. He is very much a staying horse – a mile and a half to a mile and six and maybe two miles – hopefully he can do better this year. Some of those French horses are better the next season after acclimatising longer.

Edward Lewis

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 19 starts and currently rated 99. Last win at Lingfield (5f) in May when beating Orvar a length and a quarter of a mark of 96.

Trainer Says:

He had a good season last year and he ran a really good race in the Wokingham when finishing sixth to Out Do. He met a little bit of trouble that day and he will be targetted at all those good Sprint handicaps. He goes both five and six furlongs.

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 9 starts and currently rated 97. Best effort last season when trained by Hugo Palmer was when finishing runner-up, beaten a neck by Khafoo Shemimi in a listed race at Sandown (1m) in his reappearance in July.

Trainer Says:

He is another horse we have acquired this year. We were preparing him for the Lincoln but in the case of very soft or heavy ground we might not run him. His training has been good and we are looking forward to seeing him out but I think he wants decent ground.

Fashion Queen (GB)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of her 7 starts and currently rated 101.  Gained her last success when beating Kyllang a neck in a listed race at York (5f) in May.

Trainer Says:

She is a very fast filly and won a listed race at York last year and was Group placed in France. She was very lightly raced last year, running only four times in all. I don’t know where she is going to start and she may go to Ireland for a race at Naas in the middle of April.

Winner of two of her 10 starts and currently rated 77. Gained her latest success when beating Desert Ruler a head in a handicap at Redcar (1m 2f) in September off a mark of 73.

Trainer Says:

She won a couple of races last year and can be a little bit tricky at times to ride in her races. She needs to be held up and for them to go a good strong gallop. She can improve again and get another one or two on the board. She is a nicely bred filly.

Firmament

Form Profile:

Winner of four of his 29 starts and currently rated 107. Listed Placed and also runner-up in two Class 2 handicaps last season.

Trainer Says:

Poor old Firmament paid the price of being very consistent last season and he spent the whole year on the 107/109 mark carrying topweight in all these big handicaps from the Clipper Logistics race at York to the Balmoral at Ascot. He continued to run with credit and be in the frame or thereabouts. He likes the whole dynamic of those big field handicaps and he could just do with coming down a few pounds try and get his head in front.

Winner of two of his 11 starts and currently rated 100. Gained his last success in a listed race at Leopardstown (1m 4f) in June when beating Eziyra two and a quarter lengths when trained by Jessica Harrington.

Trainer Says:

He is a little horse we acquired this year that ran well in Ireland. He ran in the Irish Derby and won a listed race at Leopardstown previously. He is not over big and we will probably lower our sights with him and set him off handicapping and see where he takes us. He is a mile and a half/mile and six horse.

Trainer Says:

He has won in Qatar recently and he won a big pot there. He is a very talented horse but needs a strong gallop and cover in his races. His next run will most likely be at Lingfield on AW Finals Day he likes the polytrack and the last time he went there he was drawn wide and was beaten only narrowly by Kachy. If we get a decent draw we go there with a bit of a chance.

Trainer Says:

She had a good season last year before failing to load the stalls at Epsom. She can be a little quirky but she is talented and she may start in a fillies race at Nottingham and them possibly go for a listed race at York.

Larchmont Lad

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 10 starts and currently rated 106. Disqualified and placed second after finishing a nose in front of Making Light in a listed race at Leopardstown (7f) on his second start for the stable.

Trainer Says:

He won a listed race in Ireland on his second start for us and subsequently lost it in the Stewards room. He is a very talented horse who I think likes seven furlongs or maybe an easy mile. I will be surprised if we can’t have a good year with him.

She exceeded all expectations last year and won a listed race at Pontefract and a valuable handicap at the Ebor meeting at York. She is a tough genuine filly who continues to improve and surprises all of us.

Lord Glitters (FR)

Form Profile:

Winner of five of his 12 starts and currently rated 107. Has run well in three starts since joining the stable. Landed the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot (1m) in October by a neck from Gm Hopkins off a mark of 102 and subsequently beaten the same margin by Bravo Zolo in a listed event at Newmarket (1m) in November.

Trainer Says:

We bought him in July and got to know him a bit and ran him at Ascot over seven furlongs in October and he finished second to Accidental Agent and then won the Balmoral where he didn’t get the best of runs through the race but quickened up nicely and still won it. I don’t think that Newmarket was to his liking, the undulations didn’t seem to help and nothing that was held up that day was winning, but he still finished second to Bravo Zolo in a listed contest. We were considering starting him in the Lincoln but he has a rating of 107 and I don’t know if he can carry that weight on bottomless ground. He will also get an entry in the Doncaster Mile and we will see how the races shape up.

Out Do

Form Profile:

Trainer Says:

He has been out in Dubai all Winter and has been placed a few times without winning. He won the Wokingham for us last year and is a hugely talented horse. He has had his problems the last couple of years but he put them behind him. We would be hopeful he can be competitive at York and Ascot this year.

Trainer Says:

He is a horse we bought late on as a two-year-old. We ran him last year and he got better as the year went on and won his last three. He seems versatile regarding the ground and seems to be improving again physically. The family do better the older they get and we would be hopeful he could progress again into quite a nice horse.

He has had a couple of runs for us and went down narrowly to Hajjam at Lingfield. I think he is quite a decent horse and we went to Dubai with him but he picked up a little injury out there and didn’t run. He is back now and we are hoping we can freshen him up and get him going through the Summer.

Form Profile:

Winner of seven of his 32 starts and currently rated 102. Slightly disappointing four starts this year.

Trainer Says:

He went to Dubai and ran a couple of nice races without winning and he is plenty high enough in the handicap at the moment. He did win a listed race at Wolverhampton on his return from Dubai last year and we tried it again but we were only two days back from Dubai when he ran which was probably a bit close. He had ten days or two weeks the previous year which gave him time to settle back in and it was an experiment that didn’t go right but he is a horse that can bounce back to form. He is very tough and very genuine.

Landed the Group 2 Boomerang Stakes at Leopardstown (1m) in October when beating True Valour half a length and followed up with a half length defeat of Heart To Heart in the Grade 1 Turf Mile at Keeneland (1m) later that month. Finished highly creditable fourth, beaten a length and three quarters, to World Approval in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile at Del Mar in November on his final start.

Trainer Says:

He won the Boomerang in Ireland and the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland did us proud. He probably has a tough start to this year with a Group 1 penalty for winning the Shadwell Mile so alternative of where we start him off are limited. He is versatile from six furlongs to a mile and is a very talented racehorse. We may start him in the Lockinge and that is a possibility and then look at the Queen Anne. Whether he is up to that level I am not sure but we will see. He will travel for those Million dollar races in late Summer.

Trainer Says:

He disappointed us a bit last year and he’s quite talented but a bit quirky and he likes soft ground. I don’t know if he stays two miles – a mile and a half to mile and six is his trip. His work has been quite good this time and I don’t know where we are starting him off but hopefully he can bounce back to something like the horse that won the Old Newton Cup.

Trainer Says:

He didn’t have the best of years last year having spent all winter in Dubai and then was kept going all Summer and so he has no break. He has had a good break and is dropping down in grade to handicaps so hopefully that will help him get back on track.

Trainer Says:

He is a horse we think a lot of and he ran first time out at York and travelled really well and got beaten by Santry who turned out to be useful. We then won our novice at Catterick beating a novice of Jamie Osborne’s who went onto be rated 100 and then we went to Royal Ascot where he picked up an injury that set us back and then went to France where he was too fresh and then overraced. At the end of the season we took him to Newmarket for a conditions race where he settled beautifully and won it really well. He is a horse we hope can improve into something better than a handicapper but we will start off in a three-year-old handicap and see where we go from there.

Winner of one of her 4 starts and currently rated 72. Off the mark on her final start at Redcar (7f) in September when scoring by a length and a quarter from Sunstorm.

Trainer Says:

She did well for us last year and won a Book 1 Bonus and about 50 grand for winning her maiden. She probably wants a mile and may get further and she probably won’t be out until May time.
