Sadler's Wells dominates Welsh National finish

Coral Welsh National (Grade 3), Chepstow, 3m 5 1/2f

SYNCHRONISED (8 g Sadler's Wells - Mayasta by Bob Back)

Breeder: Mrs Noreen McManus

SADLER'S Wells dominated the finish of the Welsh National at Chepstow on Saturday with Synchronised, a son of the great stallion, outstaying his grandsons Giles Cross, by Saddlers' Hall, and I'moncloudnine, by Cloudings, to win by two-and-three-quarter lengths.

Although a son of the most influential European Flat stallion of recent times, Synchronised was bred to excel as a jumper. His dam, Mayasta, was successful at up to 1m5f on the Flat but she found her forte over jumps - as could be expected from a daughter of Bob Back - to win five races over hurdles and one over fences. She also ran several good races in defeat, notably when second in a Grade 2 handicap hurdle at Punchestown.

Mayasta visited Sadler's Wells in her first five seasons at stud, from which she produced minor jumps winner Fourball in addition to Synchronised.

She has a two-year-old filly by Flemensfirth and a yearling filly by Oscar.
