The three year old Shadwell Estate owned Ehraz is our second selection and was seen three times last term having been bought for 180,000gns and on debut was a huge eye-catcher at Newmarket finishing second behind the smart Noble Truth, flashing home late from off the pace.
He was bought back to 6f off the back of that run over course and distance at Ascot and went on to bolt up in Maiden company, breaking his duck.
Seen once more last term he was a strange fifth at York in the Group Three Acomb Stakes, with the race truly falling apart.
Back for another season he made his seasonal return in the Group Three Commonwealth Cup Trial and travelled like the best horse for a long way but just found very little, looking in need of the run.
Stripping much fitter for the run he returned at Newbury in the Listed Carnarvon Stakes and under a less than impressive ride by Jim Crowley, he still managed to only go down by a short head to the talented Tiber Flow.
He is expected to keep improving and although going into Group One company, his turn of pace in the final furlong was frightening when last seen and if being closer to the pace, he could hit the frame.
