Nicklaus (GB)

Nicklaus is a three-year-old gelding by Exceed and Excel and was bought as a yearling at the Baden Baden sale by Peter Doyle for 180,000 euros.  He ran three times last year improving on each occasion to win on his last start, a maiden at Redcar. On his second start he finished ahead of John Gosden's Court House which then went on to win a decent novice at Newcastle and is likely to receive a rating above 80. Nicklaus got a mark of 75 for his efforts and William is more than hopeful that he can take advantage of this low rating and win some really nice races as a three-year-old this year.

Nicklaus won on his final start at two and was subsequently gelded. He ran very well at Yarmouth last time and was unlucky in running that day when finishing a closing fourth. He was subsequently fourth at Newbury, before winning very easily over 7f at the same track. He won with plenty in hand and should now be capable of running up a sequence.
