DIAR STOCKHOLM ARABIAN CUP - AL MOUNTEZE MONLAU SEALS HIS PASSAGE FOR THE BIG RACEDAY AT NEWBURY

BRO PARK (SWE), 18th June 2018

Gr. III PA - 4-year-olds and up - 1,750m - SEK 200,000

A dual winner at Group PA level for trainer Élisabeth Bernard and owner Marie-Ange Bourdette, Al Mounteze Monlau (Nashwan Al Khalidiah) was sold at the end of last season and is currently racing in Sweden in the colours of Camilla Nilsson. Third in one of the Wathba Stallions Cup (Gr. III PA) races on his Scandinavian debut at Jägersro (dirt) on May 21st, he went on to fill the same position in the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup over 1,500 meters at Gärdet: a distance which is on the sharp side for him. This was the prelude to the five-year-old opening his Swedish account by shining in the DIAR Stockholm Arabian Cup (Gr. III PA, turf) at Bro Park. On this occasion, he accounted for Burkan Al Khalediah (Munjiz) and Shadwan Al Khalediah (Nashwan Al Khalidiah). However, the hot favourite Macallan (Dahess) had to settle for fourth, as Al Mounteze Monlau sealed his passage for the big PA raceday at Newbury on July 29th. Camilla Nilsson, who also trains the winner, said: "Al Mounteze Monlau didn’t take to the Gärdet circuit last time. Today, he ran a lot better."

FROM THE LINE OF DJAINKA DES FORGES

Al Mounteze Monlau is the only product of his dam, Tadri (Saklawi Jadrane), according to France Galop records. The second dam, the quadruple winning Djarisa des Forges (Samsun), is herself out of Djari des Forges (Chéri Bibi), the winner of the Critérium des Pouliches (Gr. I PA). The latter is a half-sister to Djamour des Forges (Tidjani): the dam of the high class Djainka Forges (Kerbella) whose roll of honour includes four Group I PA wins, including the Qatar Arabian World Cup at Longchamp in 2014.
