What a revelation this horse has been this season. His 2 year old campaign finished with a brilliant Group 3 victory but he’s since ascended to the very top of the 3 year old 1 mile division.
Winning a listed race at Leopardstown over 7 furlongs on seasonal comeback put him in perfect condition to win the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket by a short head to Master Of The Seas.
Connections tried to be audacious and capture a 1 mile classic treble as he attempted both the French and Irish Guineas within three weeks. Coming 6th and 2nd respectively, he showed his hardiness by putting in massive shows in a short space of time.
Last seen running away with the St James’ Palace Stakes, Jim Bolger’s stable star spread eagled the field and established himself as the best in his age range.
Taking on his elders here will really test him but he’s the one to beat on paper and has been given plenty of time to freshen up after Ascot.
