Montjeu Adds UK Gr3

Friday, 8th July 2011

Dual-Derby winning stallion & former NZ shuttler Montjeu (out of Kendor mare Dibenoise) added a UK group success overnight when his colt Masked Marvel (Montjeu-Waldmark, by Mark Of Esteem) scored by a head in the £50,000 (A$75,000) Gr3 Bahrain Trophy (13 furlongs) at Newmarket. Masked Marvel (ridden by Jimmy Fortune for trainer John Gosden) defeated Irish-bred fellow colt Census (Cacique-Slieve, by Selkirk) & the filly Zain Al Boldan (Poliglote-Carla, by Cardoun). Masked Marvel was a €260,000 (A$351,000) yearling at France’s 2009 Arqana August Sale & now has 3 wins (also including May’s Listed Cocked Hat Stakes over 11 furlongs at Goodwood) from 6 starts.
