Two familiar stables were to the fore in the juvenile races at the Randwick Kensington meeting as Godolphin and Team Snowden scored wins with a pair of talented youngsters.
Beautifully bred Emirates Park filly Najmaty lived up to her barrier trial form, defying a wide run to steam down the outside and claim the Charlotte Inglis Handicap (1000m) on debut.
By top stallion I Am Invincible out of Group Three winner Najoom, Najmaty justified her +125 favouritism and lived up to the expectations of co-trainer Paul Snowden, who said she had shown above-average ability from the outset but had needed time to mature.
“We've been a fan of her for quite a while and it was good to see her get to the races like that,” Snowden said.
“We just wanted her to have a good day and a good experience.
“I think she'll make the grade.”
The filly holds a nomination for next month's $1 million Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) at Randwick and winning jockey James McDonald expects Najmaty to make her presence felt during the Sydney autumn carnival.
“She's a lovely filly. She's got a good action, a good mind,” McDonald said.
“She's a very strongly-built thing and she'll be a player over the carnival.”
“It was nice to see him break through today in good fashion,” Beadman said.
“He showed nice promise early as one of our more precocious two-year-olds and he's just taken a little while to find his feet. I think he will take a lot out of that today.”
