Faisal is set to have his sights raised after winning both his starts in promising style.

The late-maturing three-year-old son of Golden Horn only made his debut in August, but made an instant impression with a comfortable success in a mile-and-a-quarter maiden at Lingfield under Hollie Doyle.

The John Gosden-trained colt then landed the odds with the minimum of fuss in a novice event at Wolverhampton.

“He’s a promising sort, an up-and-coming horse. We are looking forward to him and running him in black type races,” said Tony Nerses, racing manager to owner Imad Al Sagar.

“He has won his two races in the style of a very good horse. He’s a nice, big horse – the type that will mature even better next year.

“We’ve got something to look forward to. I am very hopeful he will become something to be reckoned with, I hope. Potentially, that is what he looks. We will keep our fingers crossed.”

Nerses revealed that Majestic Noor, who landed the Listed John Musker Fillies’ Stakes at Yarmouth on Wednesday for the Gosden stable, is to stay in training as a four-year-old.

“She’s got the page now and her dam (Nouriya) won the same race in 2010, so we were very happy with that,” said Nerses.

“It is a late-maturing family. We will keep her in training. She has done very well to win this type of race.”
