Dane O'Neil: Rode Muraaqaba to victory

Dane O'Neil: Rode Muraaqaba to victory

Muraaqaba stayed on best of all to come out on top in the Sweet Solera Stakes at Newmarket.

Winner of her maiden on the July course in June, the Mark Johnston-trained filly returned to Headquarters on the back of a perfectly adequate fourth place in the Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot.

Trying seven furlongs for the first time, Dane O'Neill had her settled nicely in mid-division and got a lovely tow into the race at the perfect point as Calypso Beat attempted to make all.

There were five in a line with a quarter of a mile to run, but Muraaqaba (7-1) got to the front around the furlong pole and put the race to bed from there.

The gallant Calypso Beat was a length and three-quarters back in second, with favourite Winters Moon third.
