Shadwell's Two State Double

It was a metropolitan and Shadwell two State double on Saturday with David Hayes at Flemington and Ben Hayes at Randwick.

Import Jaameh (IRE) by Iffraaj (GB) took the 2500m JDRF Pin and Win Plate with Regan Bayliss aboard. Having won twice over the same distance, he will now look for a Melbourne Cup start via the Bart Cummings (2500m) at Flemington next month. The Bart Cummings offers a Melbourne Cup ballot exemption to the winner.

In Sydney, in the Shadwell colours, Muraaqeb by Snitzel is now an Epsom outsider after his strong win in the Shoot Out Mile at Randwick.

The four-year-old entire was unchallenged in the 1600m race as he blazed to front just past the 400m and stayed there to beat Another Dollar by 1-1/4 lengths.

"Last time he raced here, he won over a mile and thanks to a great ride by James McDonald, as it was his decision to run him well forward, he won again," Ben Hayes said from Randwick.

Ben believes Muraaqeb can give the Gr 1 $1 million Epsom Handicap a shake over the same distance on September 29th.

"We might look at running him as a lightweight chance for the Epsom," he said.
Congratulations to Shadwell on two State wins in the world famous blue and white colours.
