The speed-king Battaash is back in town, ready to blow away all that stand before him in the Group Two Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday.
The now five-year-old - who won this on his reappearance last year only went onto win on one of his next four starts for owner Hamdan Al Maktoum last season, with that victory coming in Group Two level again at Glorious Goodwood in the King George Qatar Stakes.
He went for home too early in the Kings Stand at Ascot earlier in June when passed by Godolphin's Blue Point, before being much below-par at York in the Nunthorpe in August on a track that just simply does not agree with him.
The son of Dark Angel could only manage fourth in the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp in October - a race he won as a three-year-old, but trainer Charlie Hills believes that he has found the key to getting his top sprinter back to his brilliant best.
Regardless how he performs, it's great to see one of the most exciting horses in training back on the track.
