The first race of the day from Newmarket on Saturday is the Group Three Zetland Stakes over 1m2f and we giving a chance to Flying Honours to get back to winning ways in an easier event.
Making his debut in July at Newmarket over 7f, he was fourth in a decent maiden learning a lot for the experience as next time out he got off the mark in emphatic fashion at Sandown, going clear by nearly 10 lengths.
Stepped up to a mile next time out at Salisbury, also stepping up into Listed company, he made a mockery of the field again.
The form of that event has been franked in a big way with the second Stormbuster for Andrew balding since winning a good conditions stakes at Newbury by five lengths.
Last time out at Newmarket only 14 days ago he was underwhelming in a tactical four runner renewal of the Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes when third, albeit not beaten far.
Getting more of a pace in this race will help and dropping in class gives us the expectation that he can bounce back.
