Kodiac fired in his fourth 2yo winner of the season when Bond Chairman - a Tally-Ho pinhook - scored on debut for Bryan Smart at Musselburgh on Friday. As a result, Kodiac is now the season's joint leading 2yo sire by number of winners - with his son Ardad.
Well backed for the 5f contest, Bond Chairman justified confidence in style, travelling well in the hands of Graham Lee before quickening clear for a length success.
Bred by the Exors of the late J Ellis, Bond Chairman is out of Flying Childers Stakes heroine Wunders Dream and a half-brother to Listed scorer Inyordreams. He was a Tally-Ho pinhook as a foal and resold for 120,000gns to Bryan Smart as a Book 2 yearling.
Also on Friday, Mehmas 3yo Marsabit won his second race, a mile handicap at Goodwood. The gelding, trained by Hughie Morrison, was delivered late by David Egan to win by a length.
"I was quite hopeful about Marsabit as when he won at Kempton last year he won really well," Morrison told the Racing Post. "He's had one or two issues, but when they don't bother him he's quite decent and a fun handicapper. I told David to ride him like that, to come late and last and he followed to the word. I thought he won with a bit in hand, but there are no plans."
Marsabit was bred by Oliver Donlon out of the Medicean mare Masela.
