- Surface: Turf
No match for Cape Palace (a distant third) on debut at Newcastle (7f) and took only a small step forward when fourth to Morisco (beaten 6½L) at Ayr (1m, good) three weeks later; probably holds a fair chance in a weaker race.
Mastercraftsman colt (44,000gns yearling); rear division on all three AW starts (7f-1m), odds increasing by the race - 16-1, 150-1, 200-1; look elsewhere for the solution.
Frankel colt (170,000gns yearling); 13th foal who is closely related to the 1m2f-1m4f AW winner Trimoulet, and a half-brother to eight winners; strength (or not) in the market exchanges should prove informative.
Epaulette colt who cost a mere 1,500gns as a yearling; tenth foal, half-brother to three winners, including Hector Spectre (1m-1m2f).
Cacique colt (62,000gns foal, 68,000gns yearling); half-brother to two winners (6f-1m); didn't improve upon his Newbury debut (6f) when finishing in the midfield rank in the Convivial Maiden at York (7f, good to firm) in August; newly hooded.
Last Year's Winner
Bobby The Great (7/4), Ambassador (2/1), Station To Station (3/1), Grey Eminence (10/1), Eevilynn Drew (16/1), Anno Lucis (33/1)
