19/3/202 Addeybb, Young Rascal to make Australian debuts

English trainer William Haggas will fulfill a long-stated ambition when he steps out his first runners in Sydney on Saturday. Haggas has campaigned Fastnet Tempest (Fastnet Rock) and Raheen House (Sea The Stars) in Melbourne previously, but Addeybb (Pivotal) and Young Rascal (Intello) represent his first runners north of the border. Addeybb is the early favourite for the Ranvet Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m), coming off a classy five-yearold season that culminated in his second to Magical (Galileo) in the Champion Stakes (Gr 1, 1m 2f ) at Ascot in October. As for Young Rascal, he runs as top-weight in the N E Manion Cup (Gr 3, 2400m) on his way to the Sydney Cup (Gr 1, 3200m). The pair have been stabled at Canterbury’s quarantine centre for nearly three weeks
