Trainer Roger Varian is planning a step up in class for Canford Cliffs juvenile Aneesah (2f Canford Cliffs-Decorative, by Danehill Dancer) following the filly’s victory at Chester on Friday night.
Philip Makin bided his time aboard the two-year-old, carrying the colours of Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar, before getting up late to claim the seven-furlong maiden.
Writing on his website, Varian commented: “Aneesah has always shown plenty at home and has stepped up from her debut. She was value for a bit more that the winning margin and we shall probably look to get some ‘black type’ with her now.”
Aneesah, who picked up a Plus 10 bonus with this victory, is a £180,000 yearling who was bred by Highclere Stud. She is pictured (nearside) working on Warren Hill at Newmarket (courtesy of rogervarian.com).
