Invincible Spirit’s Mutasaabeq Makes All In The Joel


Joel S., Shadwell’s, gave free rein to the lead at G2 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai on Friday Mutasaabeq (UK) (Invincible Spirit {Irish}) was able to take full advantage of this tactical advantage as he did it all under a perfectly crafted Jim Crowley bike.

Relegated the 5-2 runner-up, who returned to the scene of his seven-furlong win at last April’s Craven meeting, where he earned “TDN Climbers” Status, the Charlie Hills-educated son of Ghanaati (Giant’s Causeway) – who had later been brought down to Earth on several occasions, including when he last finished a stunning fourth place at Goodwood’s G2 Celebration Mile on August 27 – was known as The in his element from the start 5-4 market leader Tempus (GB) (Kingman ({GB}) screwed up the start. As he continued the climb to the line, the home-bred, fitted with blinkers for the first time, had 3/4 of a length left El Drama (Irish) (Lope De Vega {Irish}), back on Tempus in third place by the same margin.

“He’s had a nice easy time up front and has won here twice so obviously he’s enjoying it.” Hills said of the winner, whose best efforts to date have included runners-up at the G2 Sandown Mile on April 22 and the G2 Summer Mile on April 9. were at Ascot in July. “He’s in the [G2] Challenge S. in a couple of weeks so we’ll see how he’s doing. He’s had two mediocre races at Goodwood so probably won’t be going back there while he was a bit unlucky at Sandown. He is a very healthy horse and it is nice to win a race like this with him.”

Ghanaati’s finest hour came over this course and distance for Barry Hills in the 2009 1000 Guineas before adding the G1 Coronation S. to her tally at Royal Ascot, where she also finished second in the G1 Sun Chariot S. Her son Wafy (Irish) (Dubawi {Irish}) was successful in the G3 Mahab Al Shimaal while she is also responsible for Hunt Cup winner Afaak (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}). The second dam Sarayir (Mr. Prospector), who also sired the Listed Oh So Sharp S. on this stretch, also produced the sire Mawatheeq (Danzig), who finished second in the G1 Champion S. when this was held here, and Rumoush (Rahy ), who took the listed Feilden S. at the Craven meeting before finishing third in the Oaks.

Others from the illustrious family who have achieved something notable on the Rowley Mile include Maqaasid (GB) (Green Desert), third in the 1000 Guineas, and G1 Cheveley Park S., Raheen House (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire } ), who won the G3 Bahrain Trophy, Born With Pride (Irish) (Born To Sea {Irish}), who annexed the Listed Montrose Fillies S. in debut, and one of his big celebrities, Nashwan, who is one of his many moments in the sun had the 2000 guineas in 1989. Ghanaati’s 3-year-old colt Maghlaak (GB) (Muhaarar {GB}) promises to be at least a smart handicapper having doubled his tally on the Goodwood track, which his half-brother was previously so uncomfortable this month.
