Shares are available in the lightly-raced and rapidly-improving Alex Hales trained three-year-old gelding Dragon's Fire.
A March 2018-foaled son of Equiano, Dragon's Fire showed promise on his only start at two, before finishing a close-up fourth in a six-furlong novice event at Nottingham on his seasonal return. The winner of that contest is rated 88, whilst the runner-up has gone in since by nearly five lengths.
With such strong form lines to his name, it was little surprise that Dragon's Flare was sent off favourite when running in a competitive 13-runner seven-furlong maiden on the turf at Lingfield last month. Relishing the longer trip, he showed courage and determination to squeeze through a slender gap when making his challenge inside the final furlong, before ultimately going on to score a shade cosily.
Despite the narrow winning margin, Dragon's Fire was well on top at the finish and the nature of the victory should allow him to keep the handicapper at arm's length for some time. Indeed, he has subsequently been allotted an opening mark of 75, which looks very workable considering the balance of his form. There are more races to be won with him in the near future.
Looking further ahead, there is every reason to believe Dragon's Fire can enjoy a successful career under both codes, particularly as he is based with a trainer continuing to go from strength to strength in the NH sphere.
From a very smart family, he is out of the winning Dubawi mare Annawi and is therefore a near-relation of numerous German black-type earners, including the Champion Two-Year-Old Smooth Operator.
Furthermore, the extended pedigree not only features brilliant flat horses such as this year's Derby winner Adayar and the 1,000 Guineas winner Billesdon Brook, but also a succession of top-class jumpers.
Included amongst them are the outstanding 2016 Champion Hurdle heroine Annie Power, the Grade-1 winning novice hurdler Sadlers Wings, the Lanzarote Hurdle winner Atlaal, the Grade-2 winning novice hurdler Giantofaman, and the Grade-3 winning chasers Aachen and Polished Steel.
With exemplary pedigree credentials and having made a superb start to his racing career, there is an awful lot to look forward to with the highly progressive Dragon's Fire. Please get in touch for more details.
