'I didn't expect that!' - flashy juvenile strikes at 100-1 in Windsor maiden
He may have been friendless in the market but Albadri produced a big performance when running out a 100-1 winner of the 6f maiden at Windsor.
The son of Dandy Man, trained by Jane Chapple-Hyam, brushed aside some well-bred rivals on testing going to win decisively under Tim Clark.
Powering clear of the William Haggas-trained Beautiful News, and leaving odds-on favourite Longlai in fourth, it was an impressive performance from the debutant.
A 15,000gns purchase from the Tattersalls Goresbridge Sale in July, the colt's success was a big shock to connections.
A delighted but surprised Clark told Sky Sports Racing: "He's not shown much at home but he must have done all right at the breeze-ups! I didn't expect that anyway. He stuck his head down and battled out to the line."
Clark, who has now won on two of his last three rides, added: "Jane said try and get him out smartly and get behind the leaders but he broke a bit awkwardly. For the first furlong or two I had to squeeze him into the bridle but when I got into the open he really dug down."
