Form & Verdict

Frankel colt is closely related to multiple Pattern winner Broome and Group 2 winner Point Lonsdale who won his first four races at two; fetched 2.4 million guineas as a yearling; can be rated a smart prospect on the evidence of an emphatic debut win over 7f at the Curragh four weeks ago.

Easy win on debut at the Curragh (7f, good) in August and made it 2-2 in the Group 2 Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown (1m, good) last month; further improvement is needed today but this close relation to classy stablemates Broome and Point Lonsdale could be on a path to a stellar career for a trainer who has won this 11 times, including four of the last six.

Form & Verdict

Course maiden winner on debut, beating the useful Instant Appeal with plenty to spare; and readily gave away weight in five-runner 1m Killarney conditions event in July, making all; modest gallop probably contributed to defeat when favourite for a soft-ground Listed race at Tipperary last month; holds Democracy and Bremen on that running.

Won a C&D maiden on heavy ground on debut and not disgraced in two subsequent Group races over this C&D; seemed to appreciate rain-softened ground on debut and it would be no surprise if he progressed on handicap debut.
