May foal by Churchill; 200,000gns yearling; closely related to 1m 2yo/1m2f winner Herring Island (RPR 102), half-brother to winners Aduna (French 1m2f) and Rhinestone (useful bumper/2m hurdle); dam twice-raced (61) half-sister to 7f 2yo Group 1 winner Distant Music; nice pedigree and stable won this with a newcomer in 2020; market revealing.

Both 2yo starts over 7f on soft ground at Doncaster, winning well in July then proving short of toe when upped to Listed grade at the St Leger meeting (still ran respectably in staying on for third); likely to be suited by moving up in trip this term and retains potential.
