Owen Burrows Stable Tour

    Overflowing with quality bloodstock, Owen Burrows will be hoping that he can build on his excellent second season and add to the stables burgeoning tally of pattern class winners

OWEN BURROWS made stealthy progress in his second season with a trainer’s licence at Kingwood House in Lambourn last year with his 27 winners racking up just under 500,000 in prize money and Group success being achieved with Massaat in the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury and with Talaayeb in the City of York at York.

Enjazaat made his mark in the juvenile division when landing the Listed Ripon Champion Two-Year-Old Trophy and there were other maiden victories in this ranks which augur well for another personal best this time around.

Laraaib was another in the older division to produce a healthy return with his three wins and will soon be returning to action and, another hat trick scorer, Quloob is back on the worklist at Burrows’s Lambourn base as the season get properly under way for Owen and his team.

Burrows said: “I am very lucky as last year we were top heavy with two-year-olds and he have a good few unraced three-year-old to go to work with and some nice older horses which produces a good spread. We will be working hard again to see if we can have another productive year.”

Owen kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can prosper this season.

Older Horses

Alfawaris

Form Profile:

Finished third in it's two maiden back in 2016, notably finishing four lengths behind Cracksman at Newmarket (1m) in October of that year.

Trainer Says:

He obviously didn’t run last year and has had a few problems but his two-year-old form was pretty smart and he finished third to Cracksman. I think he is a talented horse and, finger crossed and if we can get him back on the track, he should be winning races. I think I will start him off over a mile and a quarter and he might get a bit further. He is a little bit off being ready as yet.

Laraaib (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his four starts and currently rated 103. Notably scored by a length and three quarters from Atty Persse in a handicap at Haydock (1m 2f) in May off a mark of 83 and followed up with a two length defeat of Banditry in a similar event at Ascot (1m 2f) in July off a mark of 95. Creditable effort when third, beaten five and three quarter lengths, to Frankuus in a Group 3 contest at Haydock (1m 2 1/2f) on his final start in August.

Trainer Says:

He ran four times and finished third in the Rose of Lancaster on his final start at three. He wasn’t quite 100 per cent after the Rose of Lancaster so we finished him for the season. He is a big raw horse who can only get better and he is another one I am looking forward to getting on the track. He won’t be ready for a month or so yet and we might possibly look to start in the Brigadier Gerard at Sandown.

Mafaaheem (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 7 starts and currently rated 94. Off the mark with an 11 length victory from Rainings Stars at Nottingham (1m 2f) in August and runner-up in his other four starts last season.

Trainer Says:

He is entered in the mile handicap at Newmarket on Tuesday and he was second four times last season and did win his maiden. You could look at his form figures and think he is a bit of a monkey but he is not and just kept bumping into pretty smart horses. His form is pretty strong and we have gelded him through the Winter. I am hoping he might make a nice handicapper.

Najashee (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 4 starts and currently rated 78. Off the mark with a length and a half success from Big Tour in a maiden at Haydock (1m) in June.

Trainer Says:

He is another well bred Invincible Spirit horse that we gelded through the Winter. He won last year and I thought he was going to be the type to keep on improving with racing but he isn’t the soundest of horses. He looks good at the minute and he is rated 78. Fingers crossed we can have a productive year with him. I have run him over a mile so far but he possibly could get further.

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 8 starts and currently rated 85. Gained his second success in a handicap at Newmarket (1m 4f) in August when scoring by a length from Star Of The East off a mark of 80.

Trainer Says:

He won a couple for me last year and he is rated 85. He ended up finishing fourth in quite a decent handicap at Newbury at the backend where Roger Charlton’s horse Withhold finished just in front of him before winning the Cesarewitch. I think my fella is going to stay as far as we want so he will be a mile six/two miler in time. I would like to think he can be competitive off his mark and pay his way.

Quloob

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 7 starts and currently rated 98. Completed a hat trick when beating Batts Rock a length and three quarters at Newmarket (1m 4f) in July off a mark of 87 and runner-up, beaten a neck, to Dubawi Fifty on his final start at Nottingham (1m 6f) in August off a mark of 94.

Trainer Says:

He won three last year and he was beaten only a neck on his final start in the Colwick Cup at Nottingham. He has done well over the Winter and is rated 98 and began the year off 71. If he can improve half as much again he is going to be a quality horse. I am not 100 per cent sure where I will start him but he is not too far off. There are a couple of races coming up and he is another who will stay as far as we want.

Thammin

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 6 starts and currently rated 87. Runner-up, beaten only a neck by Orvar at Kempton (5f) in October off a mark of 84.

Trainer Says:

He won two as a two-year-old and only had two run last season. He was very disappointing first time so we sent him back to Shadwell to sweeten him up and he ran a very good race when beaten a neck at Kempton. He is another who has done well physically and he is rated high 80’s but another who, with a bit of luck, should pay his way.

Three Year Olds

Anaakeed

Form Profile:

Finished fifth, beaten seven and three quarter lengths, to Dramatic Queen in a novice event at Yarmouth (1m) in October.

Trainer Says:

She finished fifth in her only start at Yarmouth and, again, she showed me a nice bit in her work. She just missed the break a bit in her race and got left on her own and was very green and on and off the bridle. I thought she would have run a little better but she plugged on and finished fifth. She will be out in the first half of May.

Anasheed

  • 3 b f Frankel – Hathrah
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She is unraced and a nice look of quality about her. She is quite a big filly and we didn’t do a lot with her as we had to be patient. She is in the middle stages of her work and she looks as if she wants ten furlongs.

Bawaasil

Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is an Oasis Dream colt who will run in the Alex Scott Maiden at Newmarket on Tuesday. He showed me a bit last year and we nearly got him up to a run but he didn’t quite make it. He has worked nicely this year and I would like to think he can run a promising race and mentally that will do him the world of good. I like him and hopefully he can make up to a nice horse.

Elwazir

Form Profile:

Promise in both starts in seven furlong maidens at Newmarket last Autumn. Runner-up, beaten a length and three quarters, to Thrave in September and when fourth, beaten two and a quarter lengths, to Key Victory the following month.

Trainer Says:

He is a half brother to Speedy Boarding and he had two runs last year. I was chuffed to bits with him first time over seven furlongs when he finished second to Thrave who Henry Candy thinks the world of and I was trying to find a mile race on some decent ground and couldn’t. I went back over seven on some nice ground at Newmarket again and tried to ride him a bit more forcefully but he wasn't quite physically strong enough to do that and ended up weakening. The form looks good and he could have ended up in a good race. He looks like he is a mile and a quarter horse and he does have Derby entries and all that but I think that may come too soon and we will just tread our way carefully with him. Hopefully, he will make a good second part of the season horse and a decent four-year-old.

Enjazaat

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 5 starts and currently rated 103. Landed the Listed Champion Two-Year-Old Trophy at Ripon (6f) in August by two lengths from Tip Two Win.

Trainer Says:

He was a listed winner last year but was a little bit in and out. I thought he would win the Mill Reef at Newbury after his Ripon success but he ended up disappointing and ran no race. We actually tidied his wind up a little through the Winter as he was being inconsistent. He has done well and if the ground was dry enough he could start off in the Pavilion Stakes at Ascot on May 2. If not we may wait for the listed race at Newbury on Lockinge Day.

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 2 starts. Off the mark at Chelmsford (6f) in November when beating Jack Taylor a length.

Trainer Says:

He was actually bought this time last year at the Craven Breeze-Ups and he went back to Shadwell for three or four weeks before coming to me. He is very laid back and has got it there. He ran well first time at Kempton and then won a novice at Chelmsford in November. I have to run him in another novice under a penalty and he will be out shortly. He won over six and will probably start him over six but he will get seven in time. He should be a horse to pay his way.

Fakhoor (IRE)

Form Profile:

Runner-up both starts last Autumn. Beaten three lengths by Sarook at Kempton (6f) in September and three quarters of a length by Red Cymbal at Chelmsford (6f) in November.

Trainer Says:

He ran twice and finished second twice and, again, I don’t think he did a lot wrong. He finished second to one of Sheikh Hamdan’s trained by Roger Varian and then went to Chelmsford and one of William Haggas’s beat him and they were a long way clear of the third. I think I have seen a race over six furlongs back at Chelmsford the week after next and he will go there.  I would like to think he would be the type to improve with age as well. He never looked like a sharp two-year-old type last year and we will keep our fingers crossed.

Kasbaan

Form Profile:

Finished fourth, beaten four lengths, to Extra Elusive at Newbury (1m) on his only start last October.

Trainer Says:

He had one run last year and finished fourth at Newbury in what I thought was a pretty good race on soft ground which he didn’t enjoy. I have him in on Thursday at Newmarket in the ten furlong novice and if it dries out like they say it will I might give him a run. He wants nice ground and it would be good to see him run on some decent round but he is working nicely.

  • Breeding: Dansili - Ausus (Invasor)

  • Last Race: Ascot, 13 Jul 2018 17:10
  • Result: 2/8, slowly into stride, towards rear, soon mid-division, headway over 1f out, soon switched right, kept on towards finish

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 3 starts and currently rated 88. Off the mark with a three quarter length defeat of Sevenna Star at Sandown (1m) in September.

Trainer Says:

He had three runs last year and ended up winning nicely at Sandown. He has been given a rating of 88 and I was going to give him an entry in that nice mile and a quarter handicap at Newmarket but just thought it would come that  bit too soon for him. He will have a couple of nice bits of work on the grass this week and then I think we will be ready to go. I could see him being a ten furlong horse and I did hum and haw about the Esher Cup but I think that would probably be a bit sharp for him. He could turn into a half decent handicapper.

Modafarah

  • 3 b f Dubawi – Kareemah
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She is actually a half sister to Alfawaris and she was a bit weak and immature last year. She is in her early stages but she is a nice quality looking filly and she shouldn’t be too bad.

Mokaatil

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 5 starts and currently rated 102. Opened his account with a length and three quarters success from Harrogate at Ripon (5f) in September and subsequently finished third, beaten three quarters of a length, to Abel Handy in the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes at Newmarket (5f) in October.

Trainer Says:

He was fourth in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot and then won his novice and ended up finishing third in the Cornwallis. Physically he has done very well and I am pleased with him. He will probably start in a three-year-old listed race at the York Dante meeting. He looks like he is complete speed so I don’t know whether he will get six furlongs.

Motaraabet

  • 3 b c Dansili – Hawaafez
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He will probably be out in the second half of the season but he is a nice Dansili out of a good mare that Marcus Tregoning used to train. He must be nearly 17 hands and is a big horse who we didn’t do too much with last year and we are taking our time now. He is a strong galloping horse and once he fills into his frame he could turn into a half decent mile and half/mile and six stayer.

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 2 starts. Made a winning debut at Yarmouth (6f) in September when beating Rule Of Honour a neck and runner-up, beaten only half a length, to Speak In Colours in a listed event at Doncaster (6f) in October.

Trainer Says:

He ran twice last year and won at Yarmouth and then just got beaten in a listed race at Doncaster when I thought he was a shade unlucky and the winner just got first run on us -  he was finishing fast and was beaten half a length. He just got a bit sick on us during the Winter and I just got held up a bit with him. Otherwise, he may have been starting in the Greenham or something like that. He was running over six furlongs last year but I think he is more of a seven furlong horse and I think it is a case of him being three weeks off. I would like to think he could be a Jersey Stakes horse and I am trying to see where to start him. Ideally, I would like to find a novice with his penalty and then give him another run before the Jersey but we are playing catch up with him at the moment.

Mutafarrid (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 4 starts and currently rated 80. Made a success nursery debut when beating Catapult three and three quarter lengths at Yarmouth (7f) in October off a mark of 69.

Trainer Says:

He was gelded in the Winter. He ended up winning his last start at Yarmouth quite nicely. To be fair he was off 69 and I expected him to win but they didn’t miss him and put him up to 80. I don’t think they gave me too much leeway but he has done well physically and fingers crossed we should have some fun with him.

Form Profile:

Promise in three starts at two and currently rated 75. Finished third, beaten six and a quarter lengths, to Hadith on her final start at Nottingham (1m 1/2f) in October.

Trainer Says:

She ran three times last year and ended up finishing third in quite a decent race at Nottingham. They have given us half a chance rating her 75 and she has done well through the Winter. She should pay her way.

Oriental Song (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of her 3 starts and currently rated 93. Scored by six lengths from Kareva at Newmarket (6f) in June and respectable fifth, beaten two and three quarter lengths, to Anna Nerium in the Group 3 Dick Poole Fillies Stakes at Salisbury (6f) in September.

Trainer Says:

She won her novice at Newmarket impressive by six lengths and then was beaten only two and three quarter lengths when fifth in the Dick Poole at Salisbury. She was the last one off the bridle but just hung a little up the straight. If she had kept straight she would have been placed but we put her away after that and she is back now. She is just in the middle stages of her faster work and we may possibly go for that Kilvington Stakes at Nottingham if she is showing me the right signs. I hope she will make up into a black type filly but it is a question of whether we do that straight away.

He is going to run in the Wood Ditton on Thursday. He showed me a bit last year but he, physically, wasn’t ready to run so we put him away. He has done very well over the Winter and he will probably be a ten furlong horse but it is a nice place to start him over a mile. He has been working nicely and he is one for the future but it will be nice to get him out.

Shabaaby

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 4 starts and currently rated 107. Off the mark with a three and three quarter length defeat of Travelcard at Newmarket (6f) in August and followed up with a seven length victory from John Kirkup in a conditions event at Doncaster (6f) in September. Finished fourth, beaten two and three quarter lengths, to Rebel Assault in the Listed Rockingham Stakes at York (6f) on his final start in October.

Trainer Says:

He ended up being rated 107 so I hope the handicapper is right. He won two for me and then, in hindsight, he might just have had enough when finishing fourth in the Rockingham Stakes at York. It didn’t look his true running but we will see. If it was soft for the Pavilion or the race on Lockinge Day he could possibly go to one of them.

Form Profile:

Winner of his only start at Leicester (6f) in August when beating Yafta two and a quarter lengths.

Trainer Says:

He won his maiden at Leicester impressively and then, unfortunately, 20 minutes after the race he was very lame and that was him finished for the season. He is back with me now and touch wood he is working well and moving nicely. He is probably about three weeks off a run and there is a six furlong novice at Doncaster on Guineas day. He will probably start there. He is out of Peintre Celebre mare and should get a bit further really but he has plenty of speed at home. Fingers crossed, if he stays sound he could be a decent horse.

Tashaaboh (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 2 starts. Scored by a neck from Masked Defender in a novice event at Kempton (6f) in October.

Trainer Says:

He had two runs last year and didn’t run much of race up North first time out then he showed a real good attitude at Kempton on his second start and made the running and was headed and then got up and won. He is another who will have to start in a six furlong novice somewhere and we will then see what the handicapper does but he should be a nice fun horse.

Wadilsafa

Form Profile:

Runner-up, beaten a length and three quarters, to Herculean on his only start in a maiden at Ascot (7f) in September.

Trainer Says:

He is a Frankel colt who finished second to what I think could be a very good horse of Roger Charlton’s called Herculean. It rained all morning and it was soft ground which the family don’t really like but we had to give him a start and he didn’t disappoint us. He is in the Dante and still in the Derby and he needs to be out shortly and was looking to have him out at Newbury but it will be horrible sticky ground with a drying week in prospect. I might wait for a Yarmouth maiden over a mile the following Tuesday. He needs a couple of nice bits of work on the grass and if that goes right he will be ready to go. If we feel he needs another week then will look to the first week in May then.

Zaajer

Form Profile:

No wins from 3 starts and currently rated 76. Finished a promising third, beaten three lengths, to Bathsheba Bay on his debut at Sandown (7f) in September and finished fourth, beaten five lengths, to Crossed Baton over a mile at that course the same month.

Trainer Says:

He ran a nice race first time at Sandown when finishing third over seven furlongs and I took him back there over a mile and he was drawn one so we thought we would have to be forceful with him from that draw and not give it up. At the end of it he didn’t get home over the mile and I ran him again at Chelmsford and he got trapped wide and it didn’t really happen for him. He has his three runs now and they have rated him 76. He has worked and whether we go straight for a handicap or go for a maiden first we will see. On work at home he shows a nice bit of ability and I just hope he is not a morning glory.
