Newcastle's Monday card featured the It's Time To Turn To Talksport Novice S., a juvenile novices' heat annexed in 2020 by Godolphin's subsequent dual Group 1 winner Rebel's Romance (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), and this year's renewal has yielded another capable of striking at a higher level after Imad Al Sagar's 2-year-old colt Intinso (GB) (Siyouni {Fr}-Rose Of Miracles {GB}, by Dalakhani {Ire}), a homebred John and Thady Gosden trainee, powered to an impressive 3 1/4-length debut victory and a 'TDN Rising Star' rosette.

The well-backed 1-2 favourite settled under cover behind the leaders in third through sedate early fractions. Tanking forward when angled into the open approaching the quarter-mile marker, he quickened clear in taking fashion once shaken up for control entering the final furlong to easily outclass Alumnus (GB) (Kendargent {Ire}) by daylight.

Intinso, a March-foaled half-brother to a yearling colt by Decorated Knight (GB), is the third foal and winner produced by an unraced daughter of Neartica (Fr) (Sadler's Wells), herself a winning half-sister to eight black-type performers headed by the storied multiple champion Goldikova (Ire) (Anabaa), G1 Prix Vermeille heroine Galikova (Fr) (Galileo {Ire}) and multiple Group 1-placed sire Anodin (Ire) (Anabaa).
