His sire, Dawn Approach was a superb winner of the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, having been Champion 2yo, the year before. He went on to compete in the Derby, but failed to settle, before bouncing back to form to become the Champion 3yo miler of his generation.

He’s made a fabulous start to his time at stud and in the shape of his sturdy, yet athletic son, here, out of a mare who has already produced a 107 rated horse, we look to have a thoroughly progressive individual, who should make up into an outstanding individual as a 3yo, as the distances of ground that he will contest races over, become commensurate with those of his genes.
We envisage his optimum distance, to be 1m 2f in time and given his fabulous presence and physique, he could easily make up into a high-class, dual-purpose prospect, beyond his 3yo season; either that, or become a very valuable asset at the end of his 3yo season, 2021. His pedigree goes back to Green Desert, Galileo and Park Appeal no less, so we have a really blue-blooded individual, on our hands.
Marco reports him to possess a bombproof temperament, with a fantastic stride and presence, which will stand him in good stead.

Racing Update: A gorgeous, big, long striding individual. Anything he ever did as a 2yo was going to be just building blocks to his 3yo season. 2nd on his final outing, he is sure to build on that with a winter on his back. He’s strengthened up no end and is raring to go now, up in trip. He’s a very exciting individual indeed and he could even make up to either a large asset, high-class dual-purpose prospect, or possibly both. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
