Singspiel filly Hibaayeb impresses in Ribblesdale

SINGSPIEL'S daughter Hibaayeb stayed on strongly in the 1m4f Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot on Thursday under Frankie Dettori.

A Group 1 winner as a juvenile at the same track when landing the Fillies' Mile, and the fourth foal of her dam Lady Zonda, herself by Lion Cavern. Hibaayeb is a half-sister to May Meeting, who won her debut and was second in a Cork Listed race on her only other start.

Lady Zonda's racing career was unexceptional, though she did win twice in handicaps over 7f and 1m at three, her only season to race. Her granddam, Oh So Hot, is a half-sister to Oh So Sharp, by Habitat.

Singspiel has sired a number of high-class fillies, with Yorkshire Oaks winner Dar Re Mi, Prix de Diane heroine Confidential Lady and Folk Opera, winner of the E P Taylor Stakes at Woodbine, among them.
