Progressive Kodiac two-year-old Water Of Leith made it back-to-back wins on Sunday with a gutsy display to defy a penalty in the 6f novice at Wolverhampton.
Previously successful at Newcastle, the Jim Goldie-trained Water Of Leith received a positive analysis from the Racing Post, which wrote: "Having proved to be a decent sprinting two-year-old he is going to be an interesting sprint handicapper as a three-year-old. Although he ran well below this form on his debut, which was his only outing on grass, there is no other reason to think that he won't prove as effective when he goes back on turf."
Water Of Leith was bred in Ireland by Rifa Mustang Pty Ltd out of Zakhrafa, by Shamardal. He was a €25,000 purchase out of the Goffs Sportsmans Sale by Louise Cooper-Joyce and was resold for £62,000 out of the MC Thoroughbreds draft at the Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale to Goldie and Flash Figs Racing.
Water Of Leith is one of 49 two-year-old winners this year for Europe's leading two-year-old sire Kodiac. Among them are a record nine stakes winners - Campanelle, Nando Parrado, Ubettabelieveit, Bahrain Pride, Captain Magnum, Frenetic, Havana Love, Umm Kulthum and Zoetic.
