European Round-Up

The Last Lion Lands Sirenia Stakes

The colt, who has yet to finish out of the first three in eight career starts, was settled on the shoulder of the pacesetter by jockey Joe Fanning and travelled strongly into the lead at the top of the straight. Once shaken up he quickened clear for an impressive four length victory over the running-on... Read More

Intelligence Cross Appreciates Drop In Grade

The son of War Front (Danzig) trailed the exciting Mehmas (Acclamation) in both the July Stakes (Gr 2, 6f) at Newmarket and Richmond Stakes (Gr 2, 6f) at Goodwood on his last two starts, but was far too strong for these rivals.

Held up off the pace by replacement jockey Seamie Heffernan, with Ryan Moore sidelined... Read More

The Aidan O’Brien-trained juvenile travelled smoothly throughout in the hands of Ryan Moore, who manoeuvred his mount off the rails to deliver his challenge approaching the final furlong. The colt picked up well when asked to quicken, sweeping through to beat the Godolphin-owned pair Thunder Snow (Helmet) and Boynton (More Than Ready) by a length... Read More
