Name The Wind could be a late contender for next month’s Qipco 2000 Guineas after maintaining his unbeaten record with victory in the Racing TV Conditions Stakes at Kempton.

Having made a winning debut at the track over seven furlongs in September, the James Tate-trained son of Toronado got the mile well in getting the better of favourite Senza Limiti – who was also defending an unbeaten record – by a short head.

Following the race Name The Wind (2-1) was cut from 66-1 into 25-1 for the colts’ Classic by Paddy Power.

Philip Robinson, assistant racing manager to owner Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum, said: “I didn’t know if he would beat the William Haggas horse (Senza Limiti). I think Far Above (stablemate) would probably be a bit in front of him.

“He was very impressive. We’ve managed to get some more experience into him. He settled in nicely and once he quickened, he was always going to win.

“He is in the 2000 Guineas and we will have a chat with the owner. He has lots of options and maybe we could go for it as there is only one 2000 Guineas.

“James Tate has just taken his time and brought him along nicely. Hopefully he will come on a lot for this.”
