UAE Jewel can look forward to tackling bigger and better prizes after creating a striking impression on his debut in the bet365 Wood Ditton Maiden Stakes at Newmarket.
Backed as if defeat was out of the question, the Roger Varian-trained son of Dubawi - who holds an entry in next month's Dante Stakes at York - justified his 10-11 price tag as he stormed clear of his rivals late on in the mile prize, defeating Al Hadeer by five lengths.
Varian said: "We liked him all last year. He is a big horse and we just took our time with him, but then he had sore shins in the autumn.
"He has been training well all spring, you never know how they are going to do coming into a Wood Ditton, but you hope they run well.
"We felt from his home work that a mile would be the perfect trip to start him over. He is a lengthener and two down it took him time to get on top of the horse that led.
"Over the last half a furlong he lengthened away well. We will possibly look at the Newmarket Stakes back here on Guineas weekend, which is a Listed race over 10 furlongs."
