Kingman colt; final offspring of his dam Kind and therefore a half-brother to the mighty Frankel; at 6-1, he ran a hugely promising first race over C&D in November and that form has worked out well, with the winner following up in a French Listed race and the third successful since; the yard's winner of this two years ago had shown promise as a 2yo; very interesting.
