No doubts over Probably superiority
Trainer David Wachman
The David Wachman-trained Probably looks a colt with a bright future after he justified heavy market support in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF (C&G) Maiden at Limerick.
The 2013 Derby entrant, who made 160,000gns as a foal, was backed into 1-2 favouritism having been available around the 2-1 mark earlier in the day, and he did not disappoint under a confident Billy Lee.
Newbury Hill set a reasonable tempo in the seven-furlong contest, with Probably and eventual runner-up Kingston Jamaica more than happy to track the early pace.
Once given licence to go about his business over a furlong from the finish, the response was impressive as Probably skipped into a clear lead, and he only had to be kept up to his work to register a two-length triumph.
Wachman said: "He is a grand horse. Seven furlongs to a mile is his trip. We will step him up now to Listed or Group company as the year progresses.
"He is a very straightforward type who goes on any ground."
Another warm order obliged in the Kanyu Tree Playing Live 22nd June Maiden, with 3-10 chance Danzerini getting off the mark at the second time of asking.
Third to Hi Emperor at Fairyhouse earlier in the month, Mick Halford's gelded son of Bernardini found the necessary improvement to go two places better under Shane Foley.
