Looked as if he'd come on for the run and benefit from the experience when runner-up on sole 2yo start, over 1m on Newcastle Tapeta; up against it in a useful if muddling 1m2f novice at Newmarket 11 days ago where he didn't give up his lead lightly in third; another new trip but open to more improvement in a less competitive race.

By Frankel out of 1m-1m2f winner (including Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes; RPR 115); 2-1 for seven-runner maiden at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) in November, travelling best to lead 2f out and going on by nearly 2l as the first two drew clear; the runner-up has big-race entries, as does this colt (Dante and Derby); looks a fine prospect.

Derby and King Edward VII entry; by Frankel out of a 1m2f Group 1 Pretty Polly winner; won a Newcastle maiden (1m2f, AW) in November, drawing clear with yesterday's Chester maiden third Mr Hampstead; 3-1, failed to boost the form when fifth of six in steadily run novice at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in April, when Salamanca was about 3l ahead in receipt of 7lb, but it looked as if moving up in trip was very much in order; he remains capable of better.
