Frankel colt who showed promise when placed over 6f/7f on good to firm at the start of the summer; given a bit of time ahead of this third start and it's likely 1m will suit him; leading claims.

Beaten 7l when sixth of 11 at 33-1 on debut here (7f, good to firm) in June, and he's likely to come into his own over further next year; however, at least this 425,000euros yearling has the benefit of an extra furlong today and it will be no surprise to see a much-improved performance.
