Mabeel To Relish Mile Return

Thursday, 10th March 2016

Mabeel's latest effort at Te Rapa augurs well for his next appearance when he steps back up to 1600 metres, reports NZ Racing Desk. The talented 5YO romped home by 4-lengths in the Listed Anniversary Handicap (1600m) and ran fourth in the Gr1 Thorndon Mile before reverting to 1200 metres at Ellerslie where he was a fast-finishing fourth in the Gr3 Darley Plate. "He missed the kick a bit and got completely out of his ground, but he got home super and he was in front 50 metres passed the post," co-trainer Natalie Young said. Mabeel (Savabeel-Ma, by Cape Cross) will have his next start in the Gr2 Japan-NZ International Trophy at Tauranga on March 26.
