Halford is excited by the future prospects of Dibayani

Updated: July 4, 2012

Trainer Michael Halford is excited by the future prospects of Dibayani but he won’t over face the two year old.

The Aga Khan owned son of Shamardal made an eye catching debut behind the Aidan O’Brien trained The United States at the Curragh on Sunday but Halford will give him time before stepping him up in class.

“He is one we have liked for a while now. That maiden at the Curragh traditionally works out well and Aidan thinks a bit of the winner,” Halford said.

Dibayani is a half brother to 2010 Ebor winner Dirar and Halford thinks he will improve further as he matures and develops.

“We’ll try to win a maiden now, hopefully, and then we’ll step up from there. As Dirar won the Ebor you’d imagine he’ll get further in time, but I’m in no rush to step him up yet,” he added.
