Shabaaby shoots clear at Doncaster Shabaaby continued his progression with a thoroughly impressive display in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Conditions Stakes at Doncaster.

The Owen Burrows-trained juvenile was third behind high-class filly Nyaleti on his racecourse debut at Salisbury in June and confirmed that promise with a dominant success at Newmarket last month.

With Demons Rock the 6-4 favourite to secure a fifth consecutive victory, Hamdan Al Maktoum's Shabaaby was second best in the market at 13-8, but the result was scarcely in doubt.

Champion jockey Jim Crowley settled his mount in behind Beatbox Rhythm for much of the six-furlong journey and once given his head, Shabaaby shot clear to score by seven lengths.

John Kirkup came through to beat Beatbox Rhythm to the runner-up spot, while Demons Rock was a bitterly disappointing last of four runners.

Burrows said: "He's done that very nicely and he's improving with every run, which is great.

"He's a very straightforward horse. He settles well and when you pull him out, he's got a fair amount of gears.

"Originally we mentioned that might be it for the season. He's proved he handles plenty of cut in the ground. I'll have a chat with the team, they're back from Keeneland tomorrow and we'll see."
