Last of five on debut behind Big Time in a conditions race over this trip on debut at Naas May 15, Sudirman was third next time behind the subsequent
G2 Coventry S. third Sir John Hawkins (Henrythenavigator) in a course-and-distance maiden 11 days later, but struck decisively by 4 1/2 lengths at the third time of asking at Leopardstown June 20. Keen early trapped wide in third under Wayne Lordan, the bay looked held by Big Time from 1 1/2 furlongs down until the final 100 yards, where he gradually began to assert and win the war of attrition. Ballydoyle’s Coach House, who was hammered in the market to provide a 12th renewal, proved a disappointment returning just nine days after breaking Ascot’s juvenile track record when second in the G2 Norfolk S. “He has been a slow learner, but is improving with each run,” trainer David Wachman commented. “He might step up to seven furlongs now, but I’ll speak to the owners who were thinking about Glorious Goodwood.”
