Battaash did on the track at Sandown what we’d been seeing on the gallops over the last couple of weeks. As it was his first run, and he had a bad draw, it was hard to be confident despite his work. However, he won the race impressively with a smart turn of foot which will hopefully stand him in good stead when we step him up in grade. He’s never been the most straightforward, but he’s definitely grown up from two to three and we are looking at the Coral Charge at the Eclipse meeting as his next assignment. He’s one we’re excited about.
