Horses To Follow » Timiyra


Timiyra ran a really nice race on her racecourse debut to finish third in the fillies’ maiden that opened proceedings at Cork last Wednesday. Strong in the pre-race market, she travelled well for Colin Keane in behind runners. She made came under a ride as they raced inside the two-furlong marker and, while she didn’t show an explosive turn of foot, she kept on strongly all the way to the line to get up for third, just over two lengths behind Impeachd Alexander, who is out of a half-sister to Queen Mary winner Anthem Alexander, and Might And Mercy, who fought out the finish.

Timiyra is by Coventry Stakes and Commonwealth Cup winner Caravaggio, but she is a half-sister to Tirmizi, who won over a mile and six furlongs. Out of a daughter of the Aga Khan’s superstar mare Timarida, she should progress from this experience, and she could do better as she steps up in trip. She should be winning her maiden soon, and she will be of interest when she steps up in grade and up in distance.
