Sent off long odds-on for 6f Naas debut and won easily; up with the pace throughout before weakening late into fourth in the Group 3 Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket; ground was quick then, very different conditions here, though the Newmarket form stood up well courtesy of placed efforts from Alyanaabi and Eben Shaddad in the Dewhurst.
