Cost 1,250,000gns as a yearling; half-brother to 6f Commonwealth Cup winner Golden Horde landed odds on last month's Navan debut over this trip, green but never stronger than at the finish; imposing sort an Ascot probable, likely to step up here and could take plenty of beating (although Navan form not working out).
