JABER ABDULLAH LAUNCHES DUAL BEVERLEY RAID

Elnadim Star and Gold Stone fly the flag for powerful owner Jaber Abdullah at Beverley on Thursday (August 17).

Kevin Ryan's two juveniles both made their racecourse debut at the popular East Yorkshire circuit in July, with Elnadim Star down the field and Gold Stone runner-up.

They will now attempt to win at the second time of asking in the two divisions of the Nigel's 60th Birthday EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes over five furlongs.

Elnadim Star lines up in division one at 2.10pm and will be ridden by Tom Eaves.

She was comprehensively defeated on her Beverley debut on July 7, but connections of the young daughter of Elnadim believe there could have been extenuating circumstances behind that eighth-place finish.

Jaber Abdullah's racing manager Bruce Raymond said: "I felt she was very unbalanced on the track and it all felt a bit of a rush for her over that five furlongs.

"The bit went straight through her mouth that day, though, so you'd like to hope she has come on for her debut.

"She was very green first time out but she should know what it's about now that she's got that course experience."

Gold Stone, who runs for Eaves in division two of the fillies' novice stakes at 2.40pm, was a big eyecatcher on her racecourse bow at Beverley on July 24.

Despite having missed the break, the daughter of Havana Gold galloped strongly towards the line to finish second behind Special Purpose, who is highly rated by trainer William Haggas.

Raymond added: "She might well have bumped into a very good horse on her first start.

"She missed the break but stayed on really nicely for second place.

"Gold Stone beat the rest of them easily enough but I think she is a horse that should benefit going up in trip later.

"This is a good opportunity for her, though, and we think she'll go well."

Hot on the heels of Flemingate Ladies' Day on Wednesday, the going ahead of Beverley's eight-race card on Thursday is good, good to firm in places.

Before racing, the traps rip open once again for the Reckitt Benckiser Save the Children Camel Derby, which last year raised £9,000 for charity.

Bertie, a seven-year-old white Russian camel, will return to Beverley in his quest to claim glory for a second successive year.
