Dubawi’s Rebel’s Romance Too Good For Glorious Rivals

Dubawi’s Rebel’s Romance Too Good For Glorious Rivals


Dubawi | Darley


Back on song in Newmarket’s Listed Fred Archer S. last month, last term’s G2 UAE Derby hero Rebel’s Romance (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}–Minidress {GB}, by Street Cry {Ire}) continued his winning thread, and that of man-of-the-moment William Buick, with a game victory going two yards shy of 12 furlongs in Friday’s G3 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Glorious S. at Goodwood. The Charlie Appleby-trained 4-5 favourite was steadied to race just off the tempo in fourth initially and slipped to fifth at halfway. Nudged along to reduce arrears with a half-mile remaining, he powered to the front approaching the final furlong and was driven out to deny last year’s G2 Queen’s Vase-winning stablemate Kemari (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) by a length. Richard Hannon trainee Fancy Man (Ire) (Pride Of Dubai {Aus}) prevented a Godolphin trifecta and finished 1 3/4 lengths further back in third.
