Beckett's ‘best debutant in 20 years’ for Newbury prize
?

Ralph Beckett trained Kinross is set to further enhance his Classic potential with his second start at Newbury on Saturday in the Cancom Stakes, the Group 3 race - registered as the Horris Hill Stakes.

Kingman colt Kinross made a stunning debut when he trounced a field of more experienced rivals winning by eight lengths at Newmarket earlier this month.  It earned him a quote of 25-1 for next year’s Qipco 2,000 Guineas.

 

He is one of 18 entries in the 7f race, one of two Group races staged on Worthington’s ‘Remember Together’ Family Raceday, the final Flat meeting of 2019 season at Newbury.  It has also attracted Dewhurst Stakes fourth Year Of The Tiger - one of four from the stable of Aidan O’Brien.

 

Kinross, bred and owned by Julian Richmond Watson, earned a Racing Post Rating of 101 and Topspeed figure of 100 after such a commanding first time out performance.

 

“I was expecting him to run very well, to hopefully win,” said Beckett. “We weren’t expecting that. His starting price [3-1] reflected our view.  The rating he got for his debut is not something I have ever had for a debutant in 20 years. Let’s hope the form people are right."
