New winner for Kessaar as Double O wins well for Amo

Another winner came the way of Kessaar on Monday as Double O landed a deserved success in the 6f novice at Pontefract.

Previously placed on both her starts, Double O turned in a professional display under Silvestre de Sousa to win well by over two lengths.

Double O is trained by David Loughnane on behalf of Amo Racing Ltd. She was bred by Paul and Billy McEnery out of Calorie, a winning Sea The Stars granddaughter of Prix Robert Papin heroine Much Faster.

Double O is the second winner within the past week for Kessaar following the impressive Bolt Action. A £160,000 breezer, Bolt Action is on course to reappear at Royal Ascot after running out the dominant winner of his debut for Roger Varian.

"We were very pleased with that first performance and he has come out of the race very well," Varian told "It is very likely he will go to Ascot for something like the Windsor Castle.

“I have to discuss it with the owner, who will come and watch him train next week and we will probably consider both options (Norfolk Stakes and Windsor Castle), but I thought initially the Windsor Castle was the race that we would potentially take a look at.”

Bolt Action is the second son of Kessaar to impress for Varian on debut following Tajalla’s blistering display on the Rowley Mile earlier this season.

Varian was keen to stress how impressed he has been with both colts’ temperament as much as their raw ability and added: “They are both really nice two-year-olds with very very good attitudes which is always half the battle.

“They need ability, but they also need a good brain to go with it and they both appear to have that. But they have never worked together and I wouldn’t know which one is quicker!”
