Huntdown shaped with promise when second on debut at Newmarket Aug. 23 and confirmed that intial impression by blitzing his rivals in this to justify an entry in the Oct. 25 G1 Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster. Positioned in a prominent third from the break, the well backed 3-10 favorite made smooth progress from halfway. He challenged at the quarter-mile marker and stretched clear of his rivals from the eighth pole to easily defeat All About You (Ire) (Mind Games {GB}) by an impressive seven lengths. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, £7,046.
