Notes: Another Lloyd Williams owned gelding that was making its way through the grades in Melbourne in the late autumn. This bloke hasn’t won much in easier grades so will need to take a big step forward – but, with so much upside, he is the right kind of horse to do it. Sire is Montjeu, like half of Lloyd’s. He had Almandin go straight past him first up in the 2040m Quality Hcp to be 2.5L off them in fifth when he was said to be fit enough, after being ridden aggressively. Will the 2018 Melbourne Cup be his true aim?
