Country: Great Britain

Attempt?: Hopeful

Handicap: 54kgs

Formline: Queen Elizabeth

Distance Query?: No – Winner over 3300m

Path?: Betfred Rose Of Lancaster Stakes

Likes wet?:

Notes: Won the Queen Elizabeth Stakes by a big margin and immediately went to favouritism for the Melbourne Cup in antepost betting.

Returned to Great Britain and ran in just one race, the Betfred Rose Of Lancaster Stakes (Group 3) (2100m approx), where he finished a mile off the leaders. But he seems to relish Australia so he’s back here to race again. He suffered a small injury on the float over, sounded superficial only but hope he’s ok.

He is looking to run in the Caulfield Cup before the great race, where he’s also been given 54kgs.
