This striking colt by New Approach was bought at the Arqana Breeze-Up Sale in May. He has a serious pedigree packed with black type, and is by New Approach, who has recently come into his own with producing Classics Champions, notably Masar achieving 2018 Derby victory.  This colt is a fantastic mover and breezed impressively for an absolute steal of only €90,000, swiftly being put into training with Roger Varian.  

He learnt a great deal in training last season and made his racecourse debut in a very hot Novice at Kempton on 27 November 2019.  Drawn widest of the fourteen runners, he found himself in behind the field before staying on in tremendous fashion in the final two furlongs, finishing an excellent fifth.  He was gaining ground quickly on the leaders and in another hundred yards would have been on the heels of the winner, Classic hopeful Boccaccio, so it was a highly encouraging performance from this exciting colt.  

He then duly made the anticipated from that first run when he ran out the comfortable winner of another 7f novice stakes, at Newcastle.  Sent off a hot favourite, he was always travelling strongly and soon saw off his opposition in the last furlong, winning by 1 3/4l from the promising second, Blow Your Horn.  He then returned to Newcastle and started the hot odds-on favourite to win, but ran a rather flat race finishing in second and the run also signalled that this exciting prospect is ready to step up to ten furlongs. Union has run twice so far this season, the first an encouraging performance from an impossible draw at Yarmouth, followed by a very good second at Newmarket. He stepped up in trip at Leicester to 1m3 where he was held back and never came in competitive when the pace quickened- Roger gave different instrctions to the jockey in his next start to stay up with the pace and this suited Union perfectly for him to put in an extremely brave run to win by a neck from the hot favourire Fox Vardy.
