Improving Son Of Wootton Bassett Gains Maiden Win

There should be more to come from Zainalarab (3c Wootton Bassett - Zimira, by Invincible Spirit), who won his second start in Saturday’s six furlong maiden at Salisbury.

Slowly into stride, Roger Varian’s charge raced in last under Cameron Noble and was pushed along to make headway approaching the final furlong. Ridden inside the final furlong, he ran on well to lead close home, beating the favourite by three parts of a length on the line.

Owned by Shadwell Estate, the son of Wootton Bassett was bred by Hesmonds Stud.
