McDonald said of Live Stream, who runs in same Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum colours as Far Above: “She’s a smart filly. I rode her at home last week and she put in a nice piece of work. She had a good turn of foot and we were pretty confident bar it being her first time.
“Everything went perfect. It is always the same when you are riding those nice fillies, the space opens up for you. She travelled well, but froze a little when I got after her at first and then inside that last furlong she got going.
“You can see she is an absolute diamond.”
McDonald was unbeaten in his four rides aboard Far Above, and added: “Me and James had a lot of confidence in that horse. We thought he was definitely well up to holding his own in Group One company.
“We could see what he could do at home, but it’s just a pity people couldn’t see him at his best.”

“She was always comfortable enough going under her own steam, which is always nice as it’s quite a long time off the track.
“She’s got plenty of boot, she could probably scrape seven furlongs out but she’s got more than enough speed to stay at six.”
Raatea (100-30) clinched division one of the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Maiden Stakes for trainer Marcus Tregoning.
