A horse we believe can have a big year stepping up from two to three years of age is the Aidan O'Brien trained Battleground, who last year showed bundles of ability.
The son of War Front has not really put a foot wrong during his career, finishing fifth on debut where he learnt a lot for the experience and since then has gone on to compete at the highest level.
After his debut he went to Royal Ascot and landed the Listed Chesham Stakes and then stepped up to the Group Two Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and landed the spoils in that aswell.
After that race he suffered a little setback which ruled him out of Group One events at the Curragh and Newmarket, but he was seen once more before the end of the season in America.
O'Brien primed him for the Grade One Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Keeneland and although running well he could only finish second behind a big priced home grown horse.
Now a three year old he should mature and build on what he did as a juvenile with some huge contests in the offing for the colt, who has been dubbed as the trainers best horse for the upcoming season.
