by Charm Spirit (Ire)  ex  Mayfair Lady (GB)  ( Holy Roman Emperor (Ire) )

Owner:  GAF Racing

By the QE II Stakes winner, Charm Spirit, out of a multiple winning Holy Roman Emperor Mare that Richard Fahey trained, Mayfair Lady, who was rated 107 as a three year old, Mark (we think very well) bought this well made, quality colt at the Tattersalls September 2021 Somerville Yearling Sale.

We put her on the track quite early, in the middle of April, in a five furlong Maiden on the Lingfield polytrack; he showed decent speed before not particularly handling the downhill turn into the straight all that well, hanging out and being beaten just over seven lengths by the Royal Ascot bound Knebworth; we were, though, delighted with his second run, over five furlongs at Chepstow in the second week of May where he ran on to be second, beaten half a length; he should show a fair bit more improvement as he gains experience and we hope he is real nice horse in the making for his kind Owners.
