Hugely exciting colt who brings high expectations to his 3yo season, having been so impressive during an unbeaten 2yo campaign that featured very powerful displays in the Superlative Stakes (beat Haatem by just over 6l) and Dewhurst (on this track, made all; beat Alyanaabi by just over 3l), earning him the European champion juvenile award for 2023; brilliantly strong at the finish and just keeps on galloping; acts on soft ground; poised to be the next superstar, assuming he trains on well, and sets a tall standard.

Highly exciting Ballydoyle colt who is two from two and looks a potential superstar; hugely impressive in the Superlative Stakes on the July course here (7f, good to soft) when last seen three months ago, galloping on strongly to beat Haatem by just over 6l and recording an excellent RPR; his return to the racetrack has been eagerly anticipated, such is the big impression he has created; now gets the chance to cement his 2024 Classic credentials.
