Warburton was a 180,000aed purchase at the latest Godolphin Racing In Dubai sale. Formerly with Charlie Appleby, he’s raced 4 times this year in Britain and made the frame on each occasion, notably finishing a close third on handicap debut at Epsom when last seen in April, a race which has subsequently thrown up plenty of winners.
He’s by Dawn Approach and is a half-brother to 4-time winner Bow And Arrow, whilst he’s also related to Arcarius, who has been placed numerous times at Jebel Ali.
The fact he’s still a maiden opens up plenty of opportunities looking forward, while we believe his current handicap mark of 77 is very exploitable. He likely has further improvement to come after just a handful of starts and is a nice prospect. He’s currently in training with Satish Seemar at Zabeel Stables, he has shown up well so far, though we will not rush him as he takes time to adapt to training on dirt.
