- Matchbook Low Commission Exchange Heron Stakes (Listed) (Class 1)
- 1m, Good
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Unbeaten in his first two juvenile starts (winner of the 7f Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster), he was unable to lay a glove on the likes of Too Darn Hot and Anthony Van Dyck in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes; tongue-tie on for 3yo debut.
Kingman colt (cost €240,000 as a yearling); 33/1 when winning on debut in a 7f Newmarket novice (good) last October; form boosted by the runner up King Ademar since; steps up markedly in class for 3yo debut.
A winner on his first three juvenile starts, including when going away at the finish in the 7f Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood (good); not so effective thereafter; finished 12th of 19 (40/1) to Magna Grecia in the 2000 Guineas.
Kingman colt; promising in novice company to date, winning two of his three starts (7f-1m) - drew well clear with Land Of Legends at Yarmouth (1m); similarly to his stablemate Lord North he steps up in grade, but could well prove capable.
Dubawi colt; half-brother to the 1m2f winner Chronicles; 2-2 in 1m novice contests (Redcar and Newcastle); difficult to draw anything conclusive other than to simply state that he proved his well-being at Newcastle; stablemate of King Of Comedy.
Kingman colt (cost €140,000 as a yearling); pushed out when making a 25/1 winning debut at Newbury (1m, good to soft) last September; well beaten (10th of 11) in the Group 1 Vertem Futurity Trophy (Doncaster) subsequently.
Kingman colt (cost €650,000 as a yearling); didn't hit the racecourse until this season, but is swiftly making up for lost time; hacked up at short odds at Nottingham (1m+ novice) after a most promising Newbury debut third; stiffer task.
Footstepsinthesand colt (cost 180,000gns as a yearling); has plenty of experience and is a course winner (7f, good); runner-up in Newmarket Listed races (1m1f-1m2f) on both starts this season, bustling up the exciting UAE Jewel latest.
