Declaration of War made a striking impression in two winning starts on the winter all-weather at Pornichet-la-Baule and Deauville for the Jean-Claude Rouget's barn and was having his first outing since finishing fourth for Ballydoyle in the G3 Solonaway S. over a mile at The Curragh Sept. 9. Returning there on Sunday to record an easy score in a 10-furlong conditions event on heavy ground, the imposing bay was able to overcome traffic issues and gain a first pattern-race success here to continue his upward trajectory. Holed up on the inside behind the steady pace set by Aloof, the homebred needed an out in early stretch and, after muscling into daylight, reeled in the longshot Along Came Casey in the final 50 yards. "He's been progressing with every run and has plenty of pace and travels strong," Aidan O'Brien explained. "They went a steady enough pace, so he would have learnt a lot there and did well to win." Connections are considering running the winner on Ascot's Champions' Day Oct. 20 in either the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. or G1 Champion S.
