Iffraaz closes May account

On the last day of the month, Iffraaz made a successful racecourse debut on heavy ground at Carlisle. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed’s juvenile Iffraaj colt, an April foal, faced five rivals, and Iffraaz raced prominently from the outset. Travelling strongly for Joe Fanning against the rail, he gradually pulled clear of his rivals in the final furlong to score by two and a quarter lengths from Hurstwood.
