2.00 Newbury – Defoe – WON 5/4

A little short in the betting, but he looks sure to take an awful lot of beating here, before being aimed at the top class races over 1m4f this season, especially when he encounters ground with a little cut as he does here. A cracking winner on his debut last season for us, he didn’t stop improving all year winning 4 on the bounce before contesting the St Leger. He didn’t run his race there, but having won a Group 3 level previously had shown a very high level. He’s bred to improve with age, is reportedly in tip top shape for this and will be hard to beat.
