KHK Racing's 2.7-million guineas October Book 1 purchase Akhu Najla (GB) (Kingman {GB}) ran second for Roger Varian in his Leicester unveiling Tuesday and the partnership was back in action with £480,000 [email protected] Breeze-Up graduate Eldar Eldarov (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), who powered to 'TDN Rising Stardom' in the second division of Wednesday's British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden S. at Nottingham. The 13-8 favourite tanked forward from a slot in rear to track the leaders in fourth after the initial exchanges of this debut and crept closer once into the home straight. Looming large on the bridle soon after passing the three-furlong marker, he assumed control approaching the two pole and stretched clear in impressive fashion to easily account for Janoobi (Ire) (Night of Thunder {Ire}) by a geared-down five lengths.

Eldar Eldarov is the third of five foals and second scorer out of Listed Prix de Liancourt, Listed Prix Zarkava and Listed Prix de la Pepiniere winner All At Sea (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}). He is a half-brother to Listed Rothesay S. third A La Voile (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), a yearling colt by Roaring Lion and a weanling filly by Study of Man (Ire). All At Sea is one of five black-type performers produced by G1 Deutschlandpreis, G1 Rheinland-Pokal and G1 Preis von Europa victrix Albanova (GB) (Alzao), herself a full-sister to dual G1 Champion S. heroine Alborada (GB). The February-foaled bay shares his second dam with last month's G1 Preis von Europa winner Alpinista (GB) (Frankel {GB}).
