Newmarket bore witness to a new TDN Rising Star on Sunday as Godolphin’s Ancient Truth (Ire), (Dubawi {Ire}–Beyond Reason {Ire}, by Australia {GB}) got his career off to the perfect start in the opening six-furlong novice on the card. A full-brother to last year’s TDN Rising Star Great Truth (Ire) and second foal out of the G2 Prix du Calvados winner Beyond Reason (Ire) (Australia {GB}), the Charlie Appleby-trained 5-2 favourite broke smartly to track the early pace in second before taking command two out. Pushed out by William Buick to assert his superiority from there, the homebred had a comfortable 1 1/2-length margin to spare over the Hannon trainee Principality (Ire) (Calyx {GB}), with the Ralph Beckett-trained fellow newcomer Bold Impact (Ire) (Blue Point {Ire}) 1 3/4 lengths further away in third.

The winner is the 40th TDN Rising Star for Dubawi, whose others in the category include Too Darn Hot (GB), In Italian (GB), Space Blues (Ire), Zarak (Fr) and Notable Speech (GB).


Dubawi colt Ancient Truth follows in the footsteps of his brother Great Truth by making a winning debut for the Charlie Appleby team.

A trip to Royal Ascot probably awaits the winner.@godolphin | @NewmarketRace
