The concluding contest at Leicester on Monday offers No Heretic (5:15) with a good opportunity to get off the mark at the third time of asking.
Paul Cole’s Galileo colt shaped well on his sole start at two and the 260,000gns purchase has clearly always been held in some regard, as he held an entry in the Racing Post Trophy last season.
He reappeared at Newbury just nine days ago and again ran a promising race when runner-up to King Edward VII entry Fiorente over 1m2f.
The step up to an extended 1m3f is sure to bring about improvement and he sets a fair standard.
