The exciting juvenile Method for trainer Martyn Meade has been working well ahead of his aim, the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket where he is looking to extend his unbeaten run to three races.
The son of Mehmas has made a really exciting start to life on a racecourse winning in good fashion at Doncaster on debut and that form since has been franked having beat Group 2 Prix du Calvados winner Fev Rover by four and a quarter lengths that day.
Off the back of that win he headed to Newbury in the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes and again showed a very taking performance to land the contest.
Connections hold him in very high regard and it is nice to see Martyn Meade have another potential superstar after having multiple Group One winner Advertise for the last few years.
His owners, after his Listed win decided to swerve both the Group One Prix Morny and the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood and now he is being lined up for a crack at the Middle Park Stakes over six furlongs at Newmarket on September 26th.
(Credit Racing Post) "We're working towards the Middle Park," said Meade.
"That has been the plan since his win at Newbury. We're entitled to grasp the nettle and jump him up to Group 1 level to find out how good he is.
"He's done well at home and we've given him a bit of time off. I didn't want him to be one of those two-year-olds who has seven or eight runs. He's done nothing wrong and I wanted to mind him a little bit.
"Had the circumstances been different we might have considered a race like the Prix Morny last month but we didn't want to send him to France while the quarantine restrictions were still in place."
Method looks to be a Typcial six furlong horse that could step up to a mile as a three year old and is already being priced up at 25/1 for the 2000 Guineas next season.
Meade added:"The Guineas is on the radar but we'd have to be sure he'll stay a mile.
"There's no reason why he won't and it would be the natural way forward but we'll see how he runs next time."
