Rohan Kabir came up with a handy win for title-chasing trainer Anthony Nunes who, though not impressed, was nonetheless satisfied with the final result, as it laid the foundation for a three-timer for Nunes on the 11-race midweek programme on Wednesday, November 27, 2019.

A new acquisition by Nunes, Rohan Kabir was winning for the first time from three starts for his new conditioner. The three-year-old chestnut gelded son of Soul WarriorRaise Your Voice had finished in third place twice from his two previous starts under the care of Nunes.

Rohan Kabir triumphed by five lengths in a Restricted Allowance for three-year-olds over nine furlongs and 25 yards (1,820 metres), completing the distance in a time of 1:58.2. Rohan Kabir defeated his former stablemate Milkman ridden by Robert Halledeen, with Casual Peach third, ridden by Prince Holder.

In his post-race interview, Nunes shared his thoughts about his new charge.

“Well, we purchased him ( Rohan Kabir) three starts ago and he ran alright in his first two starts, finishing third on both occasions. Then he got beaten by decent horses, so it is a natural progression for him to win among these horses.

“It is not that he is doing anything great, as Rohan Kabir is just slightly better than those whom he ran against today [Wednesday, November 27].

“We do not anticipate that he has a great future although we believe that he is good enough to win at the next level — which is non-winners of three — and after that, he may just end up in claiming,” an upfront Nunes told The Supreme Racing Guide.
