Dam won at 1m. Main track only.

Super Sermon historical data/form

SPORTSWEAR makes his racecourse debut and the Frankel colt could be good enough to make a winning start for a leading trainer in Chad Brown. Have At It and Machtree are both Kitten's Joy offspring and other newcomers to note, while Channel Cat is a likely improver.
