Form & Verdict

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.

Form & Verdict

Yet to race on ground softer than good; met traffic issues then weaved his way through to land the Tattersalls Stakes over C&D last month, looking better than the narrow winning margin suggests and taking his record to 2-3; a well-bred and improving colt who looks one of the main players.

Ready win on debut last August (6f, good to firm) and fine efforts when third over 7f here the next twice in Group 3 (7f, good to firm) and in Group 1 Dewhurst (7f, soft; behind champion 2yo City Of Troy); the first-time hood could help him settle better, now up in trip, and he's a major player.
