   This race was marred by a raft of withdrawals due to the preceding torrential rain, and it was Colombian who proved toughest when it came down to a slow-motion war of attrition on some of the deepest ground likely to be seen in Britain this season. Having mixed it with some of France's premier middle-distance performers last term, the grey managed a fourth in the G1 Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly in June and third in the G2 Prix Eugene Adam at Maisons-Laffitte the following month. Fourth in both the G2 Prix Guillaume d'Ornano at Deauville in August and the G2 Prix Niel at Longchamp in September, he was second on a rare run in his native country in a 12-furlong conditions event at Leicester in October before registering a first black-type score in the Listed Grand Prix du Nord over 1 5/16mile at Le Croise-Laroche in November. Settled  in second early by William Buick as Poet was rousted along to assume his habitual front-running tactics, he finally worried that rival out of it with a furlong remaining. Kept up to his work on the steep uphill climb to the line, Poet had no answer along with the bogged-down Twice Over, who was never able to get on terms.
