Three Weekend Eyecatchers - 01/07/2019

Headman

Headman proved his class once more for Roger Charlton in Saint-cloud on Sunday, continuing the fine form for sire Kingman of late.

Smashing winner of the London Gold Cup at Newbury on Lockinge Day, he has converted his juvenile promise into now solid three-year-old form, taking his first victory at Group level - the Prix Eugene Adam over 1m2f.

Jason Watson waited with his mount in the second trio, and with the pace on and off, the jockey then took no chances by delivering his mount early on the wide outside with two furlongs to go.

Driven out, he asserted quickly with 200 yards remaining, and won by a comfortable three-length margin over Charlie Appleby's Jalmoud.

Siskin

Siskin advertised his future Classic credentials with an emphatic success in the Group Two Railway Stakes at the Curragh on Saturday.

Trained by Ger Lyons and ridden by Colin Keane, the two-year-old is another prospect for Khalid Abdullah to get excited about going forward, after further easy victories in Listed company last time out and at Naas on debut.

Appearing to get better with each run, he faced a big challenge on Saturday when cashing with Aidan O'Brien's American Pharaoh colt Monarch Of Egypt, but Siskin merely brushed him aside and did it a shade cosily in the end.

His victory in the Group Two has certain shaken a few feathers in the Guineas markets for next season, and already looks a lively contender.

Summer Romance

Another juvenile making a move in next season's Classic markets was Charlie Appleby's Summer Romance, who made it two from two in her career with a bloodless victory in a first time Listed affair - the Empress Fillies Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.

Racing enthusiastically, James Doyle's mount just made things look far too easy when cruising into contention before being punched out to go and win the race.

The win followed up her impressive debut at Yarmouth, which has already seen the second win stylishly at Brighton.

Also a daughter of Kingman, she is definitely one to keep an eye on in the infamous royal blue colours.
