Ascension

This is a really eye-catching son of top sire Dark Angel that has rapidly developed into a very strong colt with a lovely ac-tion and is trained in Newmarket by Roger Varian. 

He made his debut at Newbury and showed a lot sharper on the track than at home, jumping fast and over racing in the early stages, meaning that he struggled at the other end over 7f.  

He clearly learnt a lot from this and then won easily at Salis-bury over 6f. His next run was in another 6f Novice, at New-castle, and he once again stamped his authority on the race to win with something in hand. 

On his final appearance of the season at Newmarket he started favourite to win a very strong Nursery at the Dubai Fu-ture Champions Meetings, but missed the break and then met trouble in running when getting into gear a furlong out, finish-ing an unlucky fourth.

This is a very exciting colt and his trainer hopes he will prove up to tackling Group races in the fullness of time.  He is a mouth-watering prospect for his owners and holds an early entry in the Irish 2,000 Guineas in May 2020!!
