Owen Burrows outlines York objective for progressive Shabaaby

Tue 10 Oct 2017

Shabaaby will aim to confirm the huge impression he made at Doncaster when he runs in the Rockingham Stakes at York on Saturday.

The Owen Burrows-trained juvenile bolted up by seven lengths in a conditions race, earning a rating of 109 in the process.

He now takes the next step up the ladder to Listed company and Burrows is happy to remain at six furlongs, for the time being.

"Touch-wood, he'll be going to York on Saturday," said the Lambourn handler.

"He looked very good at six furlongs at Doncaster so there doesn't appear any reason to go further at this stage until he starts telling us.

"Dane O'Neill came into ride him (on Tuesday morning) as he'll be on him on Saturday, with Jim (Crowley) at Newmarket.

"It was the first time Dane had sat on him since he won on him at Newmarket in August and he said he felt he'd filled out.

"Hopefully he can continue to progress."
